AmaWaterways Ventures into Myanmar With New Cruises

Award-winning river cruise line AmaWaterways has announced its first foray into Myanmar with a new ship and two new cruise programs on the Irrawaddy River. Golden Treasures of Myanmar is a 10-night itinerary, while the Hidden Wonders of Myanmar is a more extensive 14-night journey.

The Irrawaddy cruises will be made aboard the new AmaPura, a 56-passenger vessel which seamlessly melds modern and traditional touches. Each of the 28 spacious suites feature a balcony, a well-appointed ensuite bathroom, and other deluxe amenities, while the elegant public areas include a restaurant, a lounge and bar, a gift shop, a spa, a pool, and a sun deck.

On each trip, guests will be taken through the best that Myanmar has to offer. Passengers will visit the temple-studded area of Bagan, the “Golden City” of Mandalay, the Buddhist site of Mount Poppa, the ancient royal cities of Inwa, Sagaing, and Mingun, and of course, the capital, Yangon.

 All trips begin in Yangon and include pre-cruise hotel accommodation, as well as transfers to and from the ship, full board on the ship, all tours and meals, complimentary wine, beer and soft drink with lunch and dinner, and on-board entertainment including cultural shows and lectures. Also available is an optional four-night post-cruise land extension which features three nights in Inle Lake, and an extra night in Yangon. The first departure, the Hidden Wonders of Myanmar trip, is scheduled for November 24, 2014.
