The company has built an all-suite 56-passenger river cruiser, the AmaPura, which launches on Myanmar’s Irrawaddy river in November, making daily stops with included excursions and tours to optimise the experience.
The Golden Treasures of Myanmar itinerary costs from £4,999 per person including flights, two nights' pre-cruise and one night post-cruise stay in Yangon, transfers to and from the ship, ten nights on the ship, all tours, all meals, wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner, on-board entertainment and lectures, plus port charges.
Meanwhile, the line is highlighting an excursion to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Normandy Landings, with a guided visit to Normandy’s Gold and Juno beaches, a visit to the Juno Beach WWII museum, to Arromanches and to WWII monuments.
The excursion is included on a week long luxury Seine cruise from Paris, departing throughout this year. Other highlights include a visit to the harbour at Honfleur and the castles and towns that line the Seine.
D-Day cruises cost from £1,889 including travel by Eurostar from London, daily tours and excursions, seven nights' full board accommodation, free Wi-Fi and free use of on board bicycles.
