Cruising the Holy River of India

The holy river of Hinduism, the Ganges, slowly courses through one of the world's most fertile and populated areas. Along its banks, human life is connected to its waters. Avalon Waterways shares an enchanting glimpse of life away from India's big cities. During the cruise portion of your journey, you'll meet saree weavers, goldsmiths, and pottery makers. Explore the fascinating Hare Krishna headquarters in Mayapur, and visit Saint Mother Teresa's former home. On land, discover the capital city of Delhi, and tour the massive Amber Fort towering over Jaipur. Visit India's most iconic site, the Taj Mahal, for stunning views at sunrise and sunset. All of this and more await you on this gripping voyage through the heart of India.

Graceful sights. Gracious style.

Peaceful Luxury on the Ganges River

The pioneering Ganges Voyager river ship carries just 56 guests and offers a warm and relaxed experience. The ship takes you back in time with the grace and style of the colonial era with wood furniture and hand-stenciled murals.

We want your experience with us to be as rewarding as possible. Your Ganges river cruise on the Ganges Voyager includes spacious suites with sitting area and huge French balcony, local beer/spirits and soft drinks throughout the day, unique shore excursions led by Certified Local Guides with audio headsets, and, of course expansive views throughout the ship. From the air-conditioned indoor lounge to the outdoor lounge, you’ll find plenty of comfortable seating and inviting spots to relax. You’ll never feel cramped or crowded on board the Voyager, especially in the indoor lounge, which features wide windows for an open view on the legendary river.
