Skift Take

Cruises are altering previous years’ itineraries in the South Pacific region to incorporate stops to Myanmar after political reforms opened the country’s borders to tourism earlier this summer.

Add Silversea Cruises to the list of travel companies touting new trips to Myanmar.

The itinerary for the luxury line’s 2014 world cruise, unveiled on Thursday, includes a three-day stay in Yangon, Myanmar as well as overnight stays in nearby Thailand and Vietnam.
