My wife and I spent an incredible two weeks in Myanmar, and one of the highlights of our visit was our time in Bagan. First, I must share how we got there. We took a four day cruise up the Ayeryewaddy river on the Sanctuary Ananda cruise boat from Yangon to Bagan. The Sanctuary Ananda is a truly five-star experience in every way. The boat itself is small and intimate - a maximum of forty ...

This cruise was part of a 15 day tour of China with a luxury tour company. The accommodations on this ship were by far the worst of the tour. I have been on several river cruises in Europe and the Yangzi Explorer simply fails every comparison test. My room was dirty and stunk of Urine. There were mosquitos and flies everywhere. No screens on the windows. A/C did not work well at all. ...

Age 70s

This was our 20th cruise and the most rewarding. Egypts history, archeological sites and hospitality is unmatched worldwide. We were concerned about security but our 34 person tour group was from arrival to departure treated like royalty. Our four hotels were included and all historic and five star. Our Nile river cruise was also five star and the nicest ship we saw. A pricey trip but with ...

This cruise was a 4 day part of a 22 day scenic tour of china so not exactly sure what part of the total tour cost this was. WE were fortunate that we were upgraded to a suite (see below) though weren't entitled to the benefits that came with it..ie laundry as one of our fellow tour members found out. Ship: was a large "best available" vessel on the Yangtze river decorated in true Chinese ...

We have wanted to cruise the Irrawaddy for many years and were recommended this river boat by our travel agent and tour company. From the moment we arrived at the boat to the moment we disembarked, our experience was delightful. The Cruise Director, AB Eland, was extremely present, attentive, caring and courteous. Nothing was too much trouble ! The ship, kitchen, spa and service staff worked ...

Most times one looks at pictures and reviews and then books a trip in the expectation that it won't quite be the same as it looks, maybe it'll look a little like the glossy website if you're lucky, but it won't be the same. This is the first time we've ever "done" a trip where the website and reviews simply did not do it justice. This is an outstanding trip (we went 8 days ...

We arrived dockside and were greeted by AB our cruise director. A cold drink and a frozen towel later we started our tour of this absolutely beautiful ship ending in our suite where our luggage was waiting for us. And we thought "could anything be better"...until we met VJ our knowledgeable and caring tour guide who daily showed us villages, temples and stupas...and we thought "could anything be ...

This cruise was fantastic, in fact so good we are thinking of doing the Chindwin in 2018. The vessel was just beautiful, rooms a good size, nice little balconies to sit on, and great showers. What can you not say about the catering. Executive Chef Sumet Sumpachanyanont (ex Mandarin Oriental Bangkok) and his staff were amazing. The food was brilliant and everyday a different dish to try. The ...
