ANOTHER FIRST FOR ABN - REGULAR SCHEDULED GANGES CRUISES RIGHT UP TO VARANASI

With our specially-designed new ship, ABN RAJMAHAL, we are proud to
announce the inauguration of regular weekly departure 7-night Ganges
cruises from Patna right up to the city of Varanasi, starting in July
2014. These cruises will serve as a basis for sightseeing of India's
holiest city as well as an introduction to completely untouched areas
of rural India. Operating between two cities with excellent flight
connections, the cruises should be easy to package and easy to sell,
with selling prices starting from US $1407 per person in twin or
single cabin. Full details of the provisional itinerary, Bengal
Despatch cruises 9 and 10, can be found on our website

2014-15 SEASON DATES AND PRICES ANNOUNCED

Also now uploaded onto our website is the complete listing of cruise
departure dates and prices from July 2014 to April 2015 for both the
Ganges/Hugli and the Brahmaputra. Prices are unchanged from 2013-14,
and thanks to the introduction of main deck as well as upper deck
cabins on our new ship ABN RAJMAHAL, some cruises are cheaper than
ever before, with selling prices for a 7-night Hugli cruise starting
from US $938 per person in twin or single.

BRAHMAPUTRA CRUISE CAPACITY DOUBLED

From November 2014 both our current ships, ABN SUKAPHA and ABN
CHARAIDEW, will be operating on the Brahmaputra in Assam, offering a
total 24 rooms per week (48 guests), with separate departure days.
The new sailings have been timed to coincide with the current Drukair
flight schedules from Paro to Guwahati, thus enabling the perfect two
week combination of a week in Bhutan followed by a gentle 7 night
cruise in Assam, with its outstanding wildlife parks, tribal
villages, temples and teagardens.
