RV Rajmahal

Built in Kolkata, the majestic RV Rajmahal is powered by three engines and has an extra-shallow draught and low profile, allowing it to cruise further upstream than conventional vessels. This means that you can reach both hidden gems and popular hotspots during our RV Rajmahal river cruises, giving you a true taste of Indian culture. The vessel is stylishly decorated using modern fittings with a touch of colonial style, offering exceptional comfort to those on board.

What excursions are there during RV Rajmahal cruises?

There are plenty of fantastic excursions to enjoy during our India river cruises. This vibrant country has plenty to offer travellers, from its iconic architectural monuments to its bustling markets and diverse landscapes.
