Belmond River Cruises

Belmond River Cruises

Few places on earth remain untouched in their natural beauty and charm from one century to the next. The ancient land of Burma, now known as Myanmar, is however, an exception to the rule, and on board the Belmond Road To Mandalay and Belmond Orcaella you can experience the best of this fascinating, unspoilt country.

A journey along the Ayeyarwady River is a voyage of a lifetime. From this mighty river, which runs the length of the country, treasures can be admired which have for so long been hidden from the world’s gaze.

With the comfort and personality for which Belmond Cruises is famous, the Belmond Road To Mandalay and Belmond Orcaella provides the most comfortable vantage point from which to absorb the surrounding serene beauty, taking in its golden-spired pagodas, ancient temples, sleepy riverside settlements and saffron-clad monks.

Ships

No journey to Asia would be complete without sampling the regional cuisine, and on board you can enjoy an acclaimed gourmet menu of Eastern and Western delicacies, all served with Burmese courtesy and charm.

Buffet-style lunch is served on the Observation Deck or in the Restaurant in seven different themes: Burmese, Shan, Thai, Indonesian, Chinese, Indian and European.

Dinners are served in the Restaurant, at a time to suit you, and offer a choice of dishes to suit all tastes from the flavours of asia to a la carte menus. A selection of European and Australian wines are also available to compliment your meal.

At the end of a day of discovery, guests may also retire to the Piano Bar for an evening in the company of fellow travellers. Decorated with a mixture of light wood and Burmese lacquerware, the Piano Bar offers guests a range of delicious local and international cocktails while enjoying the musical talents of the local pianist.

Do I Need to Tip ?

The price you pay for a journey aboard the Road To Mandalay is fully inclusive of all service charges. However, if a member of staff has helped make your journey particularly special then any gratuities you wish to give are entirely at your discretion.
