Ganges Voyager II: Luxury on the Ganges
One of only two luxury river cruise ships sailing on India's Ganges River, Uniworld’s Ganges Voyager II launched in January 2016 and now carries 56 passengers in 28 suites and staterooms from the capital of New Delhi to Kolkata (Calcutta). The ship was built specifically for the cruise line’s ‘‘India’s Golden Triangle & The Sacred Ganges’’ itinerary, which highlights the colorful spectrum of cultures found in the subcontinent.
Passengers will enjoy the same luxuries of a five-star hotel while experiencing a destination-focused voyage with impeccable service throughout the journey. While she was built in the traditional colonial style, the ship's interiors will feature modern amenities such as air conditioning, flat-screen televisions and spacious bathrooms as well as French balconies.
