The Strand Cruise is a 28-cabin luxury cruise ship currently plying the waters of Myanmar’s Ayeyarwady River operating three- and four-night itineraries between the ancient cities of Bagan and Mandalay. It was launched last December (2015) and offers perfect warm and dry sightseeing weather (in the month December) and is considered to be an awesome time to visit Myanmar.
A reinvention of the legendary style of its sister property, The Strand Yangon, the new 28-cabin Strand Cruise ship comes with latest technology such as individually controlled air conditioning and WI-FI from satellite communication. The Strand Cruise is a genuine luxury cruise experience with access to many private moorings close to landmarks along the river.
Do not miss out one of the highlights of the itinerary, which is an exclusive mooring overnight at Ava on the journey from Bagan to Mandalay, allowing passengers access the beautiful temple of Maha Aungmye Bonzan after the crowds have departed in the evening until the following morning.
The Strand Cruise is also the only operator on the river to offer visits to the iconic U-Bein bridge on both north- and south-bound itineraries.
