  3. MV Mahabaahu
The cruise was part of a trip including "The golden triangle" and Kolkata. We had expected it to be the climax of the trip, and it exceeded our expectations. The service and staff were exceptional. The meals were varied and very good. Most meals, the wonderful manager Mrs Singh joined us, recommended what to choose and informed us about what the food contained and how it was made. It could e.g. be Assam specialities. The excursions were all interesting and of high class and the crew always had some surprise to come up with. One interesting excursion was to the Mishing village on a small island in the river, where the people were self-supporting and usually not had very much contact with the rest of the country. They seemed very happy with their life and were of course very interested in us. Another memorable excursion was by tender boat on the riverbank of Kaziranga national park with rich animal life. We had already given up the hope to see a tiger, and started our trip back sipping on a glass of wine provided by the crew, when they shouted "Tiger". The guide told us that it was the same very unusual white spotted female tiger they had seen before exactly on the same spot and at the same time of day marking its fox. Of course because it is a river cruise boat, there was not space for a theater with entertainment neither a gym, but there was a spa and yoga exercises for those interested. The boat was about half occupied on our cruise which may have contributed to the exceptional service, but still we highly recommed this experience.

Cabin Review

Cabin
The cabin had a wide double bed and otherwise what expected although not very spacey.
