The fleet of Paukan Cruises


Following the long and honourable tradition of luxury and service on the Irrawaddy, each of the Ayravata fleet is a delightful gem. Their ships have been lovingly crafted and elegantly furnished. There is no better way to experience the mystic wonders of Myanmar than in the luxury of an Ayravata ship.

Irrawaddy Explorer

The sleek Irrawaddy Explorer is the newest and most luxurious of the fleet. Even before it leaves the dock, it takes you into another world of colonial elegance. With its beautiful art nouveau stairway, old-style furniture, gleaming hardwood floors, potted plants and classic light fixtures, it oozes colonial charm. This theme is carried into the whole interior of the ship, including the 28 luxurious suites, the Writers’ Lounge, the Custom House dining room, the Spa Room and the Fitness Centre. The 28 luxury suites are named Mandalay, Kipling, Orwell and Maugham, all with floor-to-ceiling glass doors to enjoy the magnificent views of the Irrawaddy River. Each suite comes with its own artwork. For the duration of the cruise, live in another time and place while enjoying modern conveniences.
