  1. Once we are done with the river cruise we will tour India and Nepal for 3 more weeks. Lots of opportunities to sample.
  2. 14 nights on the Ganges with Pandaw next month.
  3. Pontac.. thank you for the information. We'll see what's offered very shortly.
  4. I see this was from their Burma cruise. We are doing Pandaw's 14 night India cruise in about 6 weeks...perhaps it will be similar. How was your trip? We did Burma couple years ago with Amawaterways and loved it.
  5. Depending on which cruise terminal you are arriving at in Singapore there is a Left Baggage Service which allows you to drop off your luggage after you get off your cruise and they will deliver it to the airport at a prearranged time. It is only available for the Marina Bay terminal unfortunately. Check the cruise terminal website for information and prices. We were going to use it but our cruise arrived at the other terminal.
  6. Hello We did this same trip Feb 2017 starting in Saigon and ending in Hanoi. We came in a couple days earlier so did some touring on our own first. Seems like AMA is doing more touring this year in Saigon than 2 years ago. We did the Chu Chi tunnels on our own as this was not available through AMA. We went to a market on our own. They had a table set up at the hotel (near lobby) so you could pick up your itinerary package and then there was a meeting later to meet everyone and go over the agenda. The hotel was very nice and I do remember walking about a bit. Traffic in Vietnam is something else and crossing a road is exhilarating (if you like taking chances!).. lol This was the 2nd cruise we had taken with AMA, the first in Myanmar. They certainly have these trips down pat.. Sorry can't answer too many of your questions but hope you enjoy your trip. We've enjoyed these river cruises in SE Asia so much we are booked on a 2 week river cruise on the Ganges India in Oct. Cheers
  7. Booked the Capetown to Singapore itinerary today.
  8. Perhaps each Pandaw trip has different deposit amounts...ours is 20% but as you indicated it is all non refundable. We did Amawaterways for Myanmar and Mekong and would have loved to do India with them but their plans for India have been pushed off until 2021 at the earliest we've been told. The ship we have for the 14 night cruise only has 14 cabins I believe and is totally sold out. We have cancellation insurance for the deposit. Uniworld and Avalon does a combination new Delhi and Taj Mahal then 7 days cruise. We have been to these places before so the 14 night cruise is exactly what we have been looking for. Our Myanmar cruise has been our most favourite trip so far...I am sure you will be fascinated with all it has to offer ...especially Bagan .
  9. Also look at Pandaw...they are doing some interesting India river cruises. We are booked on a new 14 night river cruise from Kolkata to Varanasi October 2019.
  10. Flew business class on points on EVA from Singapore to Vancouver earlier this year. Great airline and service. Singapore Air is great too. Can't help out with hotel but check for reviews on many sites.
