Along the Banks of the Hoogly - Downstream
A unique and original cruise through rural India along the River Hoogly between Calcutta and English Bazaar
Our RV Rajmahal cruises take you through India to discover breath-taking scenery, along the Hoogly or Ganges river.
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.
Our RV Rajmahal cruises take you on an Indian adventure to discover breathtaking scenery, ancient monuments and magnificent wildlife in their natural habitat. The destinations you discover will depend on which of our India river cruises you choose. Choose to journey along the banks of the Hoogly River between Gaur, Baranagar, Murshidabad, Matiari, Kalna and Kolkata. We also offer wonderful Ganges river cruises that sail between Chunar and Patna, to see the beautiful Maner, Doriganj, Buxar, Ghazipur and Varanasi. A trip on The Holy Ganges will truly bombard the senses for an experience you’ll never forget.
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. Those that choose to embark on one of our Ganges river cruises will have the opportunity to visit the unique cities that lay on its banks. You’ll spot ancient temples and ghats, visit famous battlefields, explore palaces and witness those offering prayers to this sacred Hindu river.
Those seeking to experience the magic of the Hoogly will be taken far from the tourist hotspots to discover a true sense of Indian life. Our RV Rajmahal river cruises journey through rural countryside where rice paddies and mango orchards thrive. You may wish to visit mosques and palaces at Murshidabad, the battlefield memorial at Buxar and the spiritual city of Varanasi.
The wonderful RV Rajmahal cruise ship is 164 ft. long and accommodates just 40 passengers with 30 staff onboard, so you can enjoy a relaxing and intimate experience. There are 22 main and upper deck cabins which all have air-conditioning, private bathrooms, mini-bar, electronic safe, hairdryer, bathrobes, slippers and premium toiletries. There are also large sliding glass windows which open out onto a French balcony where you can take in the views of the riverside.
The RV Rajmahal is a spacious and luxurious cruise boat with a range of fantastic facilities. Sit back on a comfortable lounger on the sun deck as you float by the riverside, or retreat to the main lounge for a refreshing drink. There is also a small spa offering a range of treatments for those seeking rest and relaxation. The dining room serves a mixture of Assamese and continental dishes, with complimentary tea, coffee and water.
