Belmond Road to Mandalay

This graceful river cruiser offers very high standards of comfort and luxury, with unparalleled personal service and gourmet regional cuisine, whilst discovering the hidden gems of this unspoilt land.

The 43 well-appointed cabins are arranged across four decks with five different cabin categories, including one Governors Suite - all of which feature satellite television with in-house video, en-suite bathroom, shower amenities and a small personal safe. The ship has a small on-deck swimming pool, a large sun deck, a spacious observation lounge with large picture windows, a restaurant able to accommodate all passengers and satellite communications. The air-conditioned Observation Lounge on the main deck is a comfortable retreat during the heat of the day. There are no cabin balconys on this cruiser.

If you have any mobility issues we highly recommend requesting the State Deck - this is on the same level as the reception.


The Belmond Road to Mandalay plys the Ayerwaddy River upstream and downstream from Bagan to Mandalay. The cruise from Bagan is three nights, downstream from Mandalay is four nights. These shorter cruises pack a punch with visits to the most revered sites of Mandalay, and awe-inspiring temples of Bagan.  The seven-night Ayeyarwady Adventure combines both The Images of A Golden Land cruise with the return leg from Mandalay - Highlights of Myanmar. The start and finish locations are either in Bagan or Mandalay.


From award-winning photographers to best-selling authors, Belmond Road to Mandalay has hand-picked fascinating guest speakers to join you on board. They’ll accompany you on excursions, deliver insightful lectures and lead fascinating workshops during the cruise.
