Belmond believes that there is nothing more romantic than a river cruise, and subsequently takes a loving approach to curating each and every one of its cruises. Smaller more intimate vessels allow Belmond to treat each guest to a warm and personal experience on the water. Whatever voyage you choose to undertake, sleek design, warm-hearted service and bespoke cuisine are the order of the day with Belmond.
A champagne reception on deck marks the beginning of your remarkable Belmond Afloat in France voyage. Savour a relaxed pace of life as you lounge on the deck or in the beautifully well-appointed interiors. Then head ashore to discover incredible excursions, or accompany your chef to the market and pick out fresh local produce for the evening’s meal. Onboard or off – just sit back , and let your senses set sail.
Why Choose Belmond?
Belmond Road to Mandalay’s charitable efforts in Myanmar began in 1995, led by the ship’s resident doctor, the inspirational Dr Tun. With the launch of the Belmond Myanmar Foundation it aims to help both children and adults alike by providing vital healthcare and education to local communities.
The Belmond Experience
- Multi-centre cruises let you see more of a country than any other provider.
- Gourmet dining on every leg of your journey.
- Two distinctly different experiences, Belmond Afloat in France and Belmond Road to Mandalay both have Belmond philosophy at their heart.
Belmond’s fleet comprises smaller vessels and luxury barges, with each member of the fleet offering unique accommodation and a heightened sense of elegance and luxury. Spacious cabins are punctuated by thoughtful details and every creature comfort. Some barges enjoy heated pools, while some are adorned with antiques and murals - one even has a grand piano.
With voyages taking guests through France and as far afield as Burma, there is something for everyone on Belmond river cruises. A Burgundy boat trip calls for stops at sun-soaked vineyards, ancient chateaux and picture-postcard villages. Or marvel at gold-tipped temples topping the emerald banks of the Ayeyarwady River as you glide by.
