Modelled on Pandaw II and originally called Pandaw III, the Tonle saw a year’s service in Burma in 2002/3 before being sent under tug-tow to the Mekong where she has done continuous service between Saigon and Kampong Cham ever since. With her gorgeous upper deck saloon, observation decks and formal dining room this ship is an old favourite and has a rich ambience. In 2012 she was fully refitted and the number of cabins reduced to just twenty-four in order to create a professional spa, gym and library on the lower deck. She is not a small ship but despite her size she has a shallow draft and can usually get up river into low water areas when other vessels are stuck well below. This ship is currently on permanent charter to Viking River Cruises and apparently gets the highest passenger rating of any ship in their fleet.
The ship has quality mountain bikes for your independent exploration.
