The Orcaella runs 7 or 11 night luxurious cruises on the Irrawaddy and Chindwin Rivers. It is a recently-launched vessel from the renowned Belmond group, and is sister ship to the Road to Mandalay.

The Orcaella has just 25 cabins spread over 2 decks, including 1 Junior Suite, 13 State Rooms, and 9 Deluxe Cabins. All cabins are designed in the chic, refined style found throughout and feature floor-to-ceiling glass doors which can be opened out to fully enjoy the sights, sounds, and scents of riverside life.

Food is a hallmark of each journey, with fine dining and a wide selection of wines provided throughout. Local ingredients are used to create a variety of Asian treats and European delicacies, with an ever-changing menu every day.

The highest deck of the boat has a spacious sundeck & lounge, a deeply relaxing bar, fitness centre, spa, and pool.
