The Scenic Aura embarks year-round on a breathtaking journey along the Irrawaddy River in southeast Asia. A luxury river vessel, the ship is equipped with an onboard swimming pool, a wellness area, and an open-air cinema. Every stateroom is assigned a personal butler, and her highly-trained service staff are happy to pamper you in every way. Multiple dining venues ensure an excellent choice of five-star cuisine, and regional specialties and Asian-inspired creations feature prominently throughout the menu. The Scenic Aura is the perfect ship for those looking to explore exotic destinations in a world-class environment.
Originating from the glaciers of the Himalaya Mountains, the Irrawaddy River flows southbound through the Myanmar (formerly Burma) countryside, through the stunning city of Mandalay, and into the Andaman Sea. A land shrouded in mystery, Myanmar entrances visitors with its picturesque pagodas, colorful temples, and fascinating history. A cruise along the "Road to Mandalay" is the perfect way to get an exclusive glimpse at this alluring destination.
The Scenic Aura features all-balcony, all-suite accommodation. Standard balcony suites start at 258 square feet and include a bedroom, a sitting area, a balcony with furniture and a private bath. The popular deluxe suites feature the same amenities, but at a more spacious 344 square feet. And the innovative Royal Panorama Suites include a walk-in closet, a full bath, a spacious living room, and a private terrace with an outdoor jacuzzi, all spanning an area of 753 square feet. All suites come with high-end bath products, a flat-screen TV, a complimentary mini-bar, and free, unlimited Wi-Fi.
Dining & Gastronomy
The Scenic Aura specializes in gourmet, Asian-inspired cuisine adapted for Western tastes. The main dining room, Crystal Dining, serves buffet or a la carte style meals during lunch and dinner, and the more casual River Café offers breakfast and small bites throughout the day. All beverages are included in your cruise fare, so there's no reason not to indulge in a pre-dinner cocktail or try out the local beer.
Entertainment and Activities
There are several public areas where passengers can relax throughout the day, including the top-level sun deck, the onboard library, and the popular bar and lounge. There's also a small fitness and wellness center where you can make some progress on the ellipticals or indulge in a massage. But the experiences you'll make onboard will pale in comparison to those you make on the shore. Exclusive Freechoice shore excursions and signature Scenic Enrich entertainment programs are also included, and will guarantee you have an unforgettable experience in the amazing destinations you visit.
There is no dress code on the Scenic Aura, and passengers are advised to pack layers and dress for the weather. Additionally, passengers should bring clothing that covers the knees and the shoulders for visiting religious sites.
