Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2015
Cabin: Standard Outside Stateroom

We joined the Viking group in Bangkok and then visited Yangon and Inle Lake before boarding the ship in Mandalay. We were a group of 8 on this 60 passenger ship with a crew of almost 30. Dominic, the hotel manager, took care of all our needs onboard and MuMu was our excellent guide. I am glad we visited Myanmar before the people and landscape change due to commercialism.

The cabin is snug but more than adequate for our storage needs. The ship is a beauty and very well maintained by the crew. Shoes are removed and cleaned after each shot trip. Food was wonderful and so were the wines at meals. Cocktails before diner served by TiTi. We especially enjoyed visiting the villages and seeing everyday life. The people are so friendly and wanting to have pictures taken of their children. Began was the highlight and we enjoyed the movie on board "The Lady" which told the recent history of Burma.

Wifi was mostly available on the river except for a few instances.

Enough for our needs and very well serviced. Always bottles of water in the room.
