Heritage Line is a singular cruise company creating unforgettable river voyages comprised of distinctive vessels cruising in Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar.
Their peerless flagship Anawrahta sails in Myanmar on the Ayeyarwady and Chindwin River offering a perfect mix of luxurious comfort, adventure, culture, and tradition. Built to resemble a British-colonial paddle steamer, with its gleaming white rails, polished lacquer, intricately carved woodwork and shining brass, Anawrahta blends the serenity of former Burma with the opulence of the British empire.
The vessel features 23 lavish staterooms and suites, and public facilities over four expansive decks. Seemingly boundless spaces and comfort from the entrance to each room’s private balcony welcome its passengers. The beautifully appointed Deluxe and Deluxe Executive staterooms offer 32 square metres of living space with large private balconies. Carved wood panels, richly-textured fabrics, marble-tiled bathrooms and a sofa-lounge guarantee a comfortable stay.
Utmost splendours await guests in the suites. The entry-level Junior Suites (50 square metres) combine dark, regal wood with the bright oranges, saffron and greens of the floral offerings presented at temples. Huge bathrooms and balconies bring the wowfactor. The top four suites, Executive (58 square metres) and Royal Suites (86 square metres) feature a large terrace with outdoor jacuzzi and exclusive amenities including private butler service. Polished wood, locally made brocade and artefacts, finest Burmese art and textiles, and handmade artifacts commissioned from all over Burma enhance all suites to become true royal abodes. High-class facilities include a spa and sauna, a gym, the comfortable Mandalay Lounge, the British-club-like Kipling’s-Bar and the glamorous Hintha Hall restaurant. A highlight is the pool on the vast sun deck offering picturesque 360-degree views of passing sceneries.
Journeys are available around the year to discover most of the Ayeyarwady River or its large tributary Chindwin River. A wonderful mix of culture and tradition, local encounters, stunning sceneries and activities on and off- shore await passengers. Shorter cruise options (from two to four nights) are available between Bagan and Mandalay or vice versa and cover the central region of the country with its major sights and spots. The longer expedition cruises, on either a seven-night (Ayeyarwady) or 11-night (Chindwin) itinerary, are truly the best choice for off the-beaten track discoveries.
