Welcome aboard your all-suite, luxury river cruise ship, privately chartered by Furlongs Travel. Ganges Voyager is yours for the week!
Your on board accommodations embody the grace and style of the colonial era, incorporating modern conveniences and luxuries that rival the finest hotels. All suites feature floor-to-ceiling glass doors with French balcony providing panoramic river views. There is a seating area and writing desk, and each suite has a spacious bathroom with shower. Beds feature fine bed linens and duvets, premium mattresses, and your choice of pillows. Bathrooms boast quality amenities, slippers and robes. There’s generous closet space and under-bed storage, in-room safe, hair dryer, individual climate control, UK-plug sockets, and flat-screen television with on-demand movies. Daily housekeeping features a nightly turn-down service.
The ship's beautifully appointed restaurant is located on the main deck, and on the top deck you’ll find the lounge and bar, spa and fitness centre, a covered sun deck with comfortable, shaded seating areas, and an open observation deck.
Expertly trained culinary staff provide buffet breakfasts and lunches, and served dinners. Menus offer an exciting blend of European and regional cuisine with fresh, local ingredients and selected imported items. Especially included for this charter, all Furlongs Travel guests will benefit from a complimentary drinks-inclusive package, featuring free-flow domestic brands of wine, beer, spirits, soft drinks, teas, coffees and mineral water throughout the cruise.
Wi-Fi access is included in public areas, although considering our remote sailing route, please don’t expect high-speed service!
Shore trips and admission tickets for visits are included. We’ll have two local guides for all excursions, and QuietVox radio listening devices for everyone. During the cruise we also plan to schedule some cultural performances, and perhaps some educational talks, a cooking class, a ship tour, and morning yoga!
Richard and Dawn Furlong will be your hosts, and throughout the cruise you’ll be cared for by attentive, well-trained staff.
