Belmond Orcaella

Belmond Orcaella Cruises

First taking to the rivers of Myanmar in 2013, the Belmond Orcaella is a boutique cruise ship. Featuring just 25 cabins, the ship offers spectacular views as it drifts along the Chindwin and Ayeyarwady (Irrawady) rivers. Belmond River Cruises’ itineraries celebrate and capture the stunning landscapes that form Myanmar, from mountain ranges and hilltop villages to lively towns.

The open sun deck is the hub of the ship, with a lounge bar and swimming pool, as well as ample seating for passengers to relax. Cocktail parties hosted on the observation deck are a great opportunity to meet fellow travellers. Accommodating just 50 passengers on each voyage, the Belmond Orcaella provides a truly intimate Myanmar river cruising experience.

Cruises range in length from 8 to 12 nights, taking in stops at Pyay, Min Hla and Magwe while cruising the Ayeyarwady. Chindwin cruises depart from Mandalay and visit Monywa, Mount Popa and Bagan. As the ship makes its way through the waters, passengers will be treated to live entertainment and onboard lectures about the local culture.

Accommodation is available in cabins or suites. Cabins feature floor-to-ceiling doors and balconies, are air-conditioned and decadent in modern décor. Suites are decked in fine linen and silk, with an ensuite and King-sized bed. Balcony suites feature a walk-out balcony for spectacular viewing from the comfort of your own accommodation.

If you dream of exploring the river communities of Myanmar, speak to the friendly staff at Cruiseabout for information on Belmond River Cruises. Simply phone 1300 769 228 and our cruise booking agents can help you arrange the perfect trip.
