Service: The unparalleled local knowledge of the staff aboard makes a cruise on the ABN Charaidew II 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.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Assam Bengal Navigation is famous for river cruising in India and the ABN Charaidew is one of the longest established boats of the Brahmaputra River. The original vessel is now moored near Majuli Island, providing accommodation and sightseeing opportunities in its new life as a floating hotel. Meanwhile, the new ABN Charaidew II continues the sailing route between Calcutta and Dibrugarh. Travelers can choose from four, seven or ten nights on the river, taking in nature reserves, tea gardens, tribal village performances and endangered wildlife safaris. Accommodation aboard is comprised of 18 cozy and comfortable cabins, all featuring balconies for views of the passing river scenery. The limited accommodation allows for an intimate experience and guests can socialize in the vessel's saloon & bar after a day of excursions to see historical, cultural and natural wonders. Or, keep fit in the gym, relax at the spa, or lie out on the sun deck - the choice is yours.
