Inaugurating in early 2016, the Strand Cruise is a reinvention of the legendary style and unique personality of The Strand Hotel within a contemporary river cruise experience, with exceptional standards of comfort, discreet personalized service, and design touches that combines the character of the Strand in its heyday as a meeting place for explorers and raconteurs with the latest technology such as individually controlled air conditioning and satellite WI-FI throughout the ship.
The luxurious Strand Cruise takes you on a lavish journey down the historical Ayeyarwady River with breathtaking views of Myanmar and its beautiful scenic heritage. Cruise itineraries include 4 nights from Bagan to Mandalay and 3 nights from Mandalay to Bagan. With its sister property being the refined Strand Hotel, it is no surprise this latest embodiment of the Strand legacy offers the same range of activities to indulge in.
Clear your mind with a rejuvenating massage, or relax by our custom swimming pool. Enjoy the magnificent sunset from the upper deck while our sommelier delights you with our wide variety of wines. For dinner, let our Chef take you on a journey through refined cuisine. When the night is over, retreat to your comfortable cabin and sleep soundly on the waves of the river.
Our team and private concierge have dedicated themselves to your comfort to ensure a most memorable experience from the moment you step aboard The Stand Cruise.

Return on board with the rest of the crew for a delightful lunch to your liking whilst setting sail for the esteemed city of Mingun and its beautiful sandy beaches. The end of the ﬁrst day will be celebrated with a Welcome cocktail on the upper deck, all the while gazing at the sunset and its beautiful array of colors scattered across the sky onto Sagaing Hill.
DAY 2 > SAGAING & SAIL TO BAGAN
Our day begins with a visit of Sagaing Hills and Soon U Ponya terraces to enjoy unforgettable views of the tower and the Ayeyarwady River.
