We cruised on the RV Samatha in Nov 17 from Yangon to Mandalay.

The cruise was a delight or at least the onboard component. Burma itself is third-world and poor but the people seem friendly - “seem” because you don’t have much interaction with them.

The food on the boat is superb, the best we’ve tasted on a cruise. I heard no complaints and the APT company seem to have a reputation for good food and service.

Response from KiraP, Marketing @ APT Travel Group

Hi Forensic99, thank you for taking the time to write such informative feedback from your Irrawaddy River cruise with us. We are delighted to hear you loved the food and had a great on board...
