Launched in late 2015, this boutique river cruiser combines the latest technology with heritage. Traditional Burmese antiques throughout the ship stand out, whilst the latest air-conditioning, Wi-Fi and modern amenities ensure that it is one of the most comfortable boats in the region.

The 27 cabin ship, uniquely, has a number of private moorings along the Ayeyarwady, allowing for a number of exclusive experiences including visiting the temples of Ava after the crowds have departed. Whilst each of the cabins are beautifully appointed and the perfect spot to relax, the layout of the ship promotes a convivial feel, with comfortable and spacious public areas perfect for socializing.


The Strand Cruise boat has 27 cabins of four different types; Deluxe, Strand, State suite and Strand suite. Deluxe cabins are the entry level rooms with ample space, a comfortable king size bed and floor to ceiling windows. Strand rooms are larger with a separate living area and the suites are the largest offering the most luxurious options on board.
