Belmond Orcaella is an intimate river cruiser that glides along Myanmar’s two main rivers, the Chindwin and Ayeyarwady. From the panoramic windows of your cabin you’ll enjoy snapshots of life on the shores of these important waterways. Leave the ship to experience the country up close. Witness the shimmering temples that dot the landscape and join off the beaten track explorations to remote regions. Wander through hilltop villages, taste freshly prepared street food and hunt for the perfect souvenir in the bustling markets. Let the adventure begin.

Highlights:

Life Onboard

A journey on our river cruiser is both inspiring and leisurely, with lots of time to do as you please.  Unwind in your spacious cabin or take in the views from the Observation Deck. Enjoy a refreshing cocktail with new friends or indulge in a soothing spa treatment.  Belmond Orcaella hosts just a small number of guests, meaning personal attention and a relaxing journey are at the heart of your pleasure cruise.

Observation Deck

With an open sun-deck area, lounge bar and swimming pool, the Observation Deck is the hub of the ship. Perfect for soaking up the magnificent riverside views as you relax. We also host cocktail parties here, giving you a chance to mingle.

Outstanding food prepared by our executive chef is served buffet-style at lunchtime. In the evening, choose from a selection of tantalising regional and Western dishes.
