Having previously visited Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, we thought a visit to the recently opened Myanmar would be interesting and chose Scenic as our operator due to previous excellent experience. With a crew to guest ratio nearing 1:1 the service was excellent. Most of the hospitality crew greeted guests by name from the first day. The buffet lunches and breakfasts offered a wide range of fare, excellently prepared and presented. The a la carte dinners a gourmet delight. A very adequate range of 5 white, 2 rose and 5 red wInes and champagne as house wines for lunch and dinner with a a small but very adequate selection of wines available for purchase. The daily excursions led by two very knowledgeable and competent tour guides who guided us to interesting sites each day. The Scenic Aura is a new vessel which has been developed taking guest comfort and convenience in mind and excels in every respect. We will certainly recommend the Scenic Aura experience to anyone wishing to undertake a trip to Myanmar.

Stocked mini-bar which is replenished daily and very good assortment of amenities.
