Avalon Myanmar Cruise Review by fourjay

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2018
  • Destination: Asia River

Can't speak highly enough of the whole experience aboard the Avalon Myanmar cruising the Irrawaddy river, not forgetting the 2 days in the capital Yangon pre -cruise.

Myanmar is a fascinating country as yet almost untouched by tourism, and seeing it from the river stopping every day at villages and towns is a great way to get close to Burmese life.

The excursions were well planned and varied, but you do need to be mobile and able to walk distances as well as negotiating river banks which are mostly without steps.

The cruise director, the local guide, who stayed with the cruise throughout, and the ship's crew were all excellent and the Burmese people in the countryside are just delightful.

The accommodation and food exceeded our expectations, and the small passenger capacity

ensures a family like feeling within a few days. We were all good friends by the end of the journey.

Thoroughly recommended.

Cabin Review

Spacious ,air conditioned and comfortable .

Generous wardrobe and storage space.

Full width floor to ceiling window which can be opened. Ceiling fan.Good lighting and plenty of sockets.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Mandalay

Large bustling and very interesting Burmese town,second only to Yangon.

Former home of the deposed monarchy, but the partially rebuilt palace and grounds are an impressive reminder of those long gone days.
