Built in Myanmar in 2004 as a replica of the colonial Clyde steamers, this thoroughly modern ship has 28 outside staterooms (each 168 square feet) on two decks. Fine dining, excellent service, and a hospitable and caring management team all help to make your Ganges River experience very special, and passengers often describe feeling as if they were guests on a private motor yacht rather than passengers on a cruise ship. Although all staterooms are very comfortable and roomy, most passengers prefer to spend their time outside on the deck, observing the fascinating scenes and scenery along the Ganges River.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no elevator between decks on the Bengal Ganga.
There are 28 cabins on two decks, each measuring 168 square feet and containing two twin beds. All cabins have an en-suite bathroom with shower and air-conditioning with individual climate control. There are no heaters in the cabins and extra blankets are kept in the drawer or closet. Cabin stewards are readily available to ensure your comfort. Each cabin has its own deck with rattan chairs and table, a mini-safe, writing desk, hair dryer, bathrobes, and slippers. The cabins do not have mini bars, televisions, or telephones.
The Saloon bar is located on the upper deck and offers a wide variety of cocktails and imported and local spirits and beers. It is open every day from 9:00 a.m. until midnight. Coffee and tea are available in the dining room throughout the day, beginning at 6:00 a.m.
Upon embarkation, a mandatory safety and lifeboat drill will be conducted, as required by the International Maritime Law. Life vests are stored in the wardrobe in your cabin. Safety instructions are posted inside your cabin door.
A selection of books and games is available for your pleasure while onboard. While there is no television reception, movies are shown in the Saloon Bar.
