    heritageLine posted a new topic Let's Talk Cruise! LUXURY RIVER CRUISER “ANAWRAHTA” MAKES ITS WAY FROM VIETNAM TO MYANMAR
    • heritageLine

      HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam ― The luxury river cruiser “Anawrahta”, owned by Heritage Line, left Ho Chi Minh City on July 8th aboard the heavy lift vessel, Rolldock Storm, bound for a 5-day journey to Myanmar where it will ply the Ayeyarwady and Chindwin Rivers beginning late-September 2015.

      “Myanmar is a very hot destination with a lot of potential because it’s practically untouched by the commercial world,” said Maarten Perdok, Managing Director of Heritage Line Co., Ltd., of the country that has been named “Destination of the Year” by Travel + Leisure magazine. “The Ayeyarwady is a stunning river to cruise and explore. In fact, river cruising is one of the best ways to discover a country and its culture. You get to see the country from a different angle and go to places other tourists don’t because there are simply no roads going to those places. This is especially true in Myanmar where infrastructure is lacking, making cruising one of the best, if not the best way to travel the country.”

       

      Built entirely in Vietnam over 14 months, the 23-cabin luxury vessel has an aluminum superstructure on top of a steel hull. “Because of the low water levels in Myanmar, we used a lot of lightweight materials for this cruiser which are typically not used,” said Technical Director Stefan Malin. “We took advantage of the experience we had from building two other ships, bringing together the right contractors and the right materials to build a very high-quality vessel.”

      “We wanted to reach a low draft of just one meter, so that we could stay ahead of the competition and cruise further out, and stay longer in areas with very low water levels,” added Perdok. “We can go to remote places on the Ayeyarwady where no one else can go, offering guests a very unique experience all year round. I’m happy to say that we succeeded in reaching this very low draft.”

       

      The Anawrahta will sail on four different itineraries ranging from 4 to 11 nights, visiting ports including Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Bhamo. The longest itinerary is the 901-mile, 12 days / 11 nights journey from Mandalay to Homalin on the Chidwin River and ending in Bagan on the Ayeyarwady River, with excursions to textile and silversmithing workshops, temples and convents and teak forests with working elephants, amongst others.

      Guests on the four-deck Anawrahta can expect a five-star experience, including the highest crew-to-passenger ratio (46 crew serving 46 passengers) and the largest cabins on the Ayeyarwady River all with private balcony, luxury amenities, world class cuisine and unique excursions as well as daily onboard lectures and entertainment.

      “You’re very close to life on the river which is quite unique,” said Perdok. “But then you have your floating hotel, luxury that’s always on standby. During the day guests go off on excursions but in no time are back to their cabin, their comfort zone, with a chilled glass of wine waiting for them.”

       

      Named after King Anawrahta, the 11th century founder of the Burmese nation, Anawrahta is modeled after a turn of the century vintage steamer and mixes Burmese motifs and British colonial-style décor. In addition to 23 spacious cabins, it features a bar, lounge, restaurant, spa, gym and Jacuzzi pool. It joins the five other unique Heritage Line ships in Halong Bay, Vietnam and on the Mekong River between Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Siem Reap (Angkor Wat), Cambodia.

      A low cost cruise line is not necessary.  There are many ways to book a lower cost cruise along with many ways to save money once onboard.  If a cruise line is going to charge a low cruise fare they're going to make up that money somewhere else.  You will never see a cruise line that doesn't plan to make money on alcohol and other onboard activities.  Cruise lines are businesses like any other, driven by profit.  The lines that don't don't turn a profit don't stay in business. 

    • CactusCruise

      Thanks,

       

         It could have been Easycruise  .  They had two ships and did  allright, for awhile. I think  they tried to go too many places too quickly. It did have cabins that were in various catagories, but I think most of the dining was buffet, but I can`t say for sure.  I do remember they stayed longer in ports - even into the night - and gave people  a lot of time to explore on their own.  It was intended to be a niche cruise line,  and  not  for everyone.  I think it  suited a younger crowd,  and a  off the beaten path ports.  I don`t think  there was a casino on board but I could be wrong about that.  I thought  for beach trips and for those who could do volunteer work  it would be  good, but most people  aren`t thinking  of  volunteer work on a vacation.

       EasyCruise ceased to exist because it was too bare boned for even young people.  Older people looking to cruise are interested in a more comfortable, and yes a little more luxe vacation.  I like to mix land and cruise vacations simply because I really like to spend time in a country.  To eat the food, shop the stores, immerse myself in the culture.  You can't really do this on a cruise. I cruise for the relaxation and the comfort.

      I was just curious as to who on the ship gets the money.  It's like corporate America.  The CEO, CFO, COO all make the big bucks AND they get the bonuses.  Seems to me that the Matre 'd has his/her hand out ... Just saying

      Sometimes it seems its true about the maitre'd as i have seen this a few times. 

       

      And yes I agree about the rest of it in regards to corporate America.

      You get "credit" by posting on the comments or adding new topics.  To me it's like a personal contest to get to the next level.

       

      Jump in and say "hi" and tell us about your cruising experiences.  Where are you going for the next 3?

       

      There's a passenger meeting hall forum under the MORE tab where you can add your upcoming cruises.

       

      Hope this helps

      Hello Iris -

       

      So glad you asked! We are a cruise community offering assistance and advice to new cruisers and a place for members and cruise lovers (like yourself!) to chat about everything cruising. We encourage you to book your voyages with one of our amazing Authorized Travel Agents listed in the menu at the top of this page. Any of them would be happy to take over your current bookings, or book your future cruises, and will offer you a great price and/or added amenities as well the services and expertise of a professional.  :smile:

       

      Plus, as Debbie and Jerry mentioned, please post your cruise bookings up in our Passenger Meeting Hall. Someone from our community may be on the same sailing, and you can meet up and plan before you cruise.

       

      In fact, why not join our "CruiseCrazies Group Cruise" next February on Holland America's Nieuw Amsterdam. For more information visit our official page: CruiseCrazies Cruise

       

      In the meantime, read up on the latest news, check out our blogs, travel tips and more! Just want to chat about anything on your mind? Join us on The Dock!

       

      See you around the community! :biggrin:
