We wanted a Christmas cruise. They excelled in providing a wonderful experience. Decorations superb, staff over the top, entertainment delightful, food and wine very good. We had great table mates from all over Europe and made our trip even more delightful. The ship was beautiful. The cabin large and inviting. Dining in all the venues was a delight. The special Italian dinner in Alfredo's with the chef and Maitre' De's specials was over the top. Service was superlative. The ports and excursions were fun and enlightening. Our weather was beautiful and the seas smooth. We had been on this ship before and were pleased that the quality was still there. This is a big ship but you never feel crowded. The staff bent over backwards to make sure all had a fantastic Christmas with special events such as the hotel manager reading "The Night Before Christmas" with many of the children at his feet. The staff led all in singing Christmas carols. The food at each meal was over the top whether in a specialty restaurant or in the Allegro dining room at the late seating. The classical music group "Rhapsody" was another highlight. We looked each day and followed them to whatever venue they were playing. Read Less

A Myanmar travel agent booked the cruise for us. The cruise was booked to start in Mandalay,(a place worth exploring at least for two days). The ticket voucher indicated a jetty for embarkation which is actually in Sagaing, a town across the river, all the while pretending that the trip would start in Mandalay. It also recommended the Tint Tint website for further information. This website indicates a jetty in Mandalay as embarkation point for this particular cruise. This is also the information that our travel agent had obtained from Tint Tint company. We noted the contradiction two days before departure. Since the "contact" web form of Tint Tint was inoperative, I wrote them by email, asking them for clarification. They never answered me. Had our Mandalay hotel not called them on the phone, we would never have known which was the embarkation point. It was, in fact, in Sagaing, thus in a different town from what we had booked. Our travel agent apologized for the mistake. Tint Tint company never corrected it. To this day, their website (http://www.tinttintmyanmarcruise.com/mandalay-to-bagan-2-nights-3-days-ip/) gives you wrong information on this item. The ship is relatively small. Cabins are sufficient. Meals are rather repetitive. Service was friendly. Entertainment on board and shore excursions were interesting and well guided. The landscape on this stretch of the Irrawaddy is relatively boring. On its website, Tint Tint Co. thinks that "Once you experience our fast and personal service, we know you will want to continue booking us for you and your clients!" One may recommend an Irrawaddy cruise; but be sure to choose a different company. Read Less

We spent 3 wonderful nights from Bagan to Mandalay(Mingun-Sagaing)slowly cruising along the Irrawaddy River. Each day the ship stopped to visit interesting places,(native villages), temples and pagodas with a ship tour director. We traveled by horse carts, bus, and water taxi. Corralling the guests was no easy task as shopping was always readily available and easy reach from the ship at each port. The staff spoke English. Very helpful in every way. We had a boat tour at sunset at Amarapura which has the world's longest teak bridge built in 1784. A very special New Year celebration with a sandbar dinner and evening celebration with the ship's crew, staff. Traditional dancing, bar, and fireworks. Couldn't have been more memorable way to ring in the new year. The ship is very clean and well appointed with a lovely sun deck, pool, and gathering areas inside and out. Exceptional service in all areas. Read Less

This is the second cruise I have taken with Tint Tint Travel and Tours. The Makara Queen was refurbished in 2015 and everything is brand new - new rooms, new bathrooms, etc. We were with a group and had rooms on the third deck. One couple had to suite which was lovely. All of the rooms and bathrooms were very nice and way better than I expected. The staff went above and beyond to make the guests comfortable. The excursions off the boat were well planned, organized, and informative. Our guide and boat staff always accompanied us. One staff always carried umbrellas - either for the sun or rain. And another staff always carried a first-aid kit and water. The food was excellent and the dining room and buffet set up was very nice. They had real flowers throughout the ship. The sun deck even has a small pool!! You can take anywhere from 3-nights to 14-nights cruises. I'd recommend 5 nights if you have the time. Great for anyone - older couples, young couples, or families with children of all ages. We had our 10 and 12 year olds with us and they loved it. Highly recommended! Read Less

The RV Yandabon is a tiny ship, just 4 cabins 1 up and 3 on the main deck. Reportedly used to train crew members for the line's other ships. You go up from the main deck (galley location, and 3 cabins, and cabins for the crew?) to the partially-open top deck where there are lots of loungers, a dining room/bar, and another cabin (ours). That's it! Small intimate is the way to put it. As a result, embarkation and disembarkation were very fast. Our cabin sandwiched between the bar/dining room and bridge - was the big one though still small, open on both sides (or at least windowed) with the bathroom behind. It's put together like - someone just put it together. Solid. Nice enough. Dining, very nice food. Communal table in the dining room though there is a private table for 2. Burmese/Chinese food served communal style. Quite delicious. Not much in the way of entertainment, just watch the scenery and navigational challenges. Excellent service by motivated crew, most of whom were recruited from villages by the river by the CD and a line manager. Excursions were included. The ship pulled up somewhere and the CD would take you through a Burmese village. Would go again. Read Less
