Service: The unparalleled local knowledge of the staff aboard makes a cruise on the ABN Charaidew a fascinating adventure.
History: Pioneers of traversing and exploring India on its waterway, Assam Bengal Navigation boasts a wealth of experience and customer service to assure all guests a pleasant voyage.
Assam Bengal Navigation is famous for river cruising in India and their very first ship, the ABN Charaidew, is one of the longest established boats of the Brahmaputra River. Travelers can choose from four, seven or ten nights on the river, sailing between Calcutta and Dibrugarh, taking in nature reserves, tea gardens, tribal village performances and endangered wildlife safaris. Accommodation aboard is cozy and comfortable and comes courtesy of the ship’s double and twin cabins, decorated - like the rest of the ship - with a characterful colonial flair. Guests can enjoy delicious meals in the sunny restaurant with its french doors flung wide for views of the passing river scenery or indeed, enjoy the panoramas from the uppermost observation deck. The limited accommodation allows for an intimate experience and guests can socialize in the ship’s saloon lounge after a day of excursions to see historical, cultural and natural wonders.
