AmaWaterways has launched its new brochure for 2015 and will also launch a new ship, the 56-passenger, all-balcony suites AmaPura, and new river cruise proogramme on Myanmar’s Irrawaddy River in November 2014. Myanmar has a unique, centuries-old culture and architecture, including sacred structures gilded with gold leaf and encrusted with precious gems. AmaWaterways’ river cruises are designed to take in all the highlights, from the temple complex of Bagan to the ‘Golden City’ of Mandalay. AmaPura is built in colonial style, with luxurious, all-balcony suites, fine dining and a plunge pool on deck.
Two itineraries will be on offer: the 10-night Golden Treasures of Myanmar and 14-night Hidden Wonders of Myanmar, with the first departure on 24 November 2014. Cruises will operate year round, except for June, July and August.
The Golden Treasures of Myanmar itinerary costs from £4,679 per person including two nights pre-cruise and one night post-cruise in Yangon, transfers to and from the ship, ten nights on board the ship, all tours, all meals, free-flowing wine, beer and soft drinks with meals, on-board entertainment including cultural shows and lectures, and port charges.
