Nowadays, in the cruise industry, more and more mega-ships are operating worldwide and Myanmar is getting popular destinations in the World Cruise Map.
Since Yangon port is a riverine port, there are tide restrictions and restricted port limitations under Myanmar Port Authority (MPA). So, there is a two-port zone in Yangon as an Outer Port for Semi Mega Cruise under LOA 280 meters cruise and Inner Port (City Harbor) for a small cruise under 167 m LOA vessel as per existing rule.
Myanmar Voyages had successfully operated the largest cruise (MV Superstar Virgo) in 2003 after attempting to change old regulation of MPA and made a Myanmar Port history by MV Astor maiden voyage in 1999.
