Pandaw Cruise, Mergui Archipelago (MV Andaman)

Deluxe - ££££


The Mergui Archipelago is a group of 800 semi-deserted islands, and a Pandaw Cruise is one of the best ways to see them. You’ll enjoy glorious beaches, treks through thick jungle and you’ll even meet the local tribes.

Few foreigners have visited this area – it’s only been open to the public since the 1990s. However, this trip is a fantastic way to see the Myanmar coast in all its glory; there’s a variety of secluded bays, rocky outcrops and scuba diving spots to explore.

On this cruise, you’ll set sail on the Andaman Explorer. She’s an impressive 61 metres long and her original engines were built by Rolls Royce.

She was once a coast guard ship in Norway but has since been renovated and transformed into a luxurious and extravagant yacht waiting to set sail.

There are 10 glorious suites to choose from on this ship, with smooth marble flooring and a number of luxurious little perks. Each suite has a private bathroom and a sitting room to enjoy.


The ship has plenty of places to relax, including two observation decks, a saloon and a fantastic dining room that serves an array of local dishes.

The team on the Andaman will organise excursions for you based on your interests and your itinerary. Kayaking and snorkelling are two of the most common pastimes on this ship, so why not give them a go?

Why We Love It

There’s a great sixties feel about the Andaman Explorer, and the ship makes a great base for exploring the Burmese coastline. It also offers a little luxury, and you’re sure to have a holiday to remember.
