This was the best holiday I have ever had. The country of Myanmar is fascinating; the Burmese people are unassuming and friendly, and the culture of the country well preserved and wonderful.
The service on the ship was world class yet relaxed. The staff could not have done more to assist passengers. They were ultra professional and capable, but genuinely friendly too - more so than I have ever encountered with cruises. The no-gratuity policy means that interactions are genuine and staff were courteous and warm because they meant it.
I traveled with my mother who is elderly and arthritic. They quietly allocated an assistant to her during tours, who had been trained by the tour guides and was skilled and extremely patient about assisting on rough ground or towards a seat for a rest.
i loved our cabin. It was bigger than I have ever enjoyed before on equivalent cruises, and fresh with white/beige decor. The windows were as wide as the cabin, floor to ceiling sliding doors. There was an extra sliding mosquito door/net which was extremely useful. the balcony was generous and private. The beds were wonderfully comfortable, even for my mother who is arthritic. There was lots of storage (in fact more then we have ever had), and the bathroom likewise was very generous.
