Review of RV Irrawaddy Explorer

RV Irrawaddy Explorer entered the flourishing Burma river cruise market in 2014. This riverboat is among the most modern, designed in English colonial style, boutique ships sailing on the mighty Irrawaddy River. The vessel is owned by Vantage Travel via a Myanmar-based joint venture. The vessel is often chartered by Europe-based river cruise travel companies, including Haimark Travel, Noble Caledonia.
