Exotic Heritage Group Preferred Cruiseline
The ultimate purpose of a journey is to discover oneself among signboards, cultures and individuals along new destinations and routes. Some realize this consciously while others just make them a part of their memories. We curate luxury experiences for your passage to India that take you through ancient river routes, forests in the heart of the subcontinent, and indigenous birds and animals in their natural habitat. We offer you the purpose and also help you realize it.
Meal times are indicated in your Daily Program. Special dietary requirements may be catered for, with advance notification.
Enjoy our extensive breakfast buffet, a lunch buffet with some served dishes on occasion and in the evening a sit-down dinner. Our Chef will endeavor to delight you with specialties from some of the regions through which you will be cruising.
There is just one sitting at meal times and in order to ensure a smooth service for sit-down dinner, we ask that you take good note of the starting time and arrive promptly. There is unassigned seating in the dining room at all times. We kindly request our guests not to take food out of the dining room. Weather permitting, early riser’s Tea or Coffee and bar services will commence outdoor only on the Sun Deck.
All meals onboard are prepared by highly experienced chefs and consist of primarily Indian / European-style food. We hope you will find each meal a wonderful culinary experience.
The dress code onboard is “casual and comfortable”.
Gratuities to the ship’s crew are not included in the holiday price.
In response to the feedback that we have received from our previous passengers on the Bengal Ganga, we have made arrangements to add gratuities to your onboard account, which is payable at the end of your voyage.
Please note though that gratuity payments are entirely discretionary and that you are welcome to opt out of this system or, indeed to alter the amount of the gratuities that you would like to be added to your account. Should you wish to pay gratuities separately to your onboard bill or charge the amount that is to be added to your account, please notify the manager during your voyage. Please refer to your Traveler’s requirements for information regarding tipping ashore while on organized shore excursions.
Gratuities to your Cruise Director / Expedition Leader and Tour Manager are not expected. However should you wish to offer a gratuity for exceptional service, then this is entirely at your discretion.
