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

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
