Our transport from ship to shore, with vey helpful crew.

This week-long river Ganges cruise was the second half of an APT holiday in India. The first week was an excellent land tour covering Delhi, Agra (for the Taj Mahal) and Jaipur, staying in top class hotels. We then flew to Kolkata and embarked on the Ganges Voyager. This boat was described in our tour brochure as "the most luxurious vessel of its kind in India". Whilst we found it quite pleasant, we would not describe it as "luxurious". Details:

1) Our cabin (Signature grade on the main deck) was spacious with a very large comfortable bed; a French balcony and two armchairs in front of it. Attractive décor. Always kept immaculate by our excellent stewards. Ample bottled water, constantly replenished.

Main downside: very little storage space for clothes. After a week on the move we were all looking forward to unpacking properly and hanging clothes up for the week on board but there was very limited hanging space and just a few small drawers. TV had in-house programmes only, no connection to e.g. satellite news channels. No Wi-Fi in cabin. Bathroom was also roomy but again, short of storage space - very little shelf space. Used toilet paper had to be placed in a bin as the flushing system could not cope with it - not what one would expect on a "luxurious" vessel.
