Overall, the dress code onboard and ashore is relaxed and casual.
The tropical climate of Myanmar and engrained Buddhist religious beliefs dictate daytime touring attire. Shore excursions often involve a lot of walking, sometimes over uneven terrain, so wear comfortable, sensible shoes. It's hot and mostly sunny. Loose-fitting clothing ensures maximum comfort. Bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen.
Many excursions include visits to Buddhist temples with lots of stairs. Temple access requires wearing modest dress and removal of shoes and socks. Men wear short-sleeved shirts to cover their shoulders and long, comfortable pants. Women also must cover their shoulders as well as their legs to below the knee. A large scarf is a wardrobe essential because it not only fulfills temple visit requirements but easily accessorizes onboard outfits.
Scenic Aura onboard attire is tasteful casual. Generally, passengers wear a swimsuit cover-up or the robe provided in the cabin to and from the pool and spa. For dinner, men wear collared shirts and slacks. Jackets aren't required, but they're far from taboo. Women dress for dinner in slacks, skirt and blouse ensembles. Fashionable flats and interesting, easy-to-pack accessories transform the same little black dress into a different frock every night.
Scenic Aura Inclusions
Virtually everything onboard and on shore is included in the tour price: meals, all alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, snacks, excursions, entertainment offerings, enrichment programs, in-room movies and unlimited Wi-Fi. The only excursion that is not included is the Balloons Over Bagan balloon ride at dawn (approximately $325) that must be booked in advance.
Tips for the crew onboard, the cruise director and river guides, as well as hotel porters, are already covered. Airport transfers and excursion transportation, including coaches, small boats, horse carriages, trishaws and tuk-tuks and their drivers' tips, are included.
The only things that could appear on your Aura bill at checkout will be spa treatments, some laundry services and personal purchases from the ship's shop.
