Jan 2016 Having just returned from our AMAPURA cruise and our third trip to Myanmar. I have some suggestions for future passengers: Bring warm clothing..early morning or evenings are cool (55 degrees F).For the few of us on deck for sunrise each morning at 6:30AM; wool caps; warm jacket;maybe even gloves. Consider you will need a jacket on plane also. Light weight long sleeve shirts for day use.
Insects few but present at dock in Yangon & Mandalay. Insect repellant needed there. Flashlight since some tours get back at night..and crew is there to help get down riverbank steps dug in sand. In Yangon pre trip watch out for uneven sidewalks with holes. Moldskin to cover delicate feet for shoes/socks off temple visits. I found this very helpful and replaced it prior to each shoes off tour. They provide feet wipes at each temple visit. Some used sandals issue then is dirty dusty streets I use walking shoes with high socks felt more protected but more time to geton/off; took a small shoe horn which was very helpful.
You are watched/helped all the way with crew members on each tour with the cruise director or assistant CD leading. Cold water bottles with bottle holder given out before each tour. Hand use of liquid disinfective prior to entering dining room and dispensed by crew after returning to ship. However a lot of passengers developed significant coughs therefore bring Rx Levofloxacin; Rx cough liquid at night to sleep; Mucinex without DM time release for daytime use to thin out mucous; Afrin to clear ears before plane. Tissues on board ship.
Excellent cabin; teak floors; A/C; clean; very comfortable bed; hot water in shower just have to wait awhile; bring a bar of your favorite soap; ship uses all liquid excellent products; we put bottles of water in empty fridge; safe in a draw; do not overload or may have difficulty opening (happen once ship manager opened it). Brought own alarm clock. And small flashlight for use at night in cabin. Thin walls so bring ear plugs. Put life jackets under desk to free up a closet shelf. Space for suitcase in closet; no space under bed. Very few drawers. Good bedside reading light by night stand. 4-5 electric outlets 220 used US type plugs..needed adaptors in Yangon ShangriLa hotel but not on ship. Power off when you remove your cabin card when leaving room; if charging something use the plug that audio device recharges in..you will have device with you during off ship tours. That plug appeared to stay on without key card in slot by door.
