We sailed on The Strand cruise between Christmas and New Year 2016/17. We understood that a cruise was the way to visit portions of Myanmar. We are generally not "cruisers" so we were a bit concerned about whether we would enjoy our experience.
What an amazing surprise -- the ship, staff, food, activities - everything about this cruise was truly special and far exceeded our expectations. The staff was welcoming and quietly attentive. The meals were prepared with creativity and the perfection of a Michelin starred restaurant. Our shore excursions were interesting and done with great efficiency keeping in mind the needs of each couple or group traveling. Part of what impressed us was the staff's effort to create an experience for each couple, family, group, etc., that was specific to them.
This cruise was definitely the highlight of our time in Myanmar and an experience that we will long remember. We're ready to return!!
