Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1: New Delhi

Arrive at New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport. If your cruise/ tour package includes a group arrival transfer or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer, you will be greeted by a cruise representative and transferred to the newly renovated Oberoi New Delhi hotel.

Day 2: New Delhi

ndia’s sprawling capital city is colorful, confounding and captivating. Your expertly led city tour provides an ideal first foray into this fascinating land. To cap your day taking in the sights of scenic New Delhi, relax this evening over a delicious buffet dinner at the Oberoi.

Featured Excursion: India’s capital city with rickshaw ride to Old Delhi

Day 3: New Delhi - transfer to Agra

This morning you will check out of your New Delhi hotel and head south via motorcoach to Agra, the site of Shah Jahan’s best-known building project, the exquisite Taj Mahal. You’ll visit the Taj Mahal this afternoon and stay for sunset, as the monument’s changing colors draw comparisons to the shifting mood of the late Emperor’s wife.

Featured Excursion: Majesty and grace—the Taj Mahal at sundown

Day 4: Agra - transfer to Jaipur

Is the Taj Mahal best seen at sunset or sunrise? It’s an impossible question to answer, so guests have the rare pleasure of experiencing both. Wake up early this morning to see the white marble monument aglow with the rosy tinge of dawn. You’ll spend your next two nights at the beautiful Oberoi Rajvilas. The luxury hotel sits on 32 acres of landscaped gardens and is built around an ancient Shiva temple.

Featured Excursion: Early morning at the Taj Mahal

Day 5: Jaipur

Pink is the color of hospitality in Rajasthan, which gives you an idea of what to expect in the “Pink City” of Jaipur. Enjoy the visit to the local city bazaar. Take the afternoon to explore on your own—shuttles will be available to carry you to and from the hotel to the city’s shopping district.

Featured Excursion: Jaipur—Rajasthan’s princely city and Amber Fort

Day 6: Jaipur - fly to Kolkata (Embarkation) - Cruising the Ganges River

Settle into your beautifully appointed suite aboard the Ganges Voyager II in Kolkata.

Day 7: Kalna

Kalna, once an important trade port on the river, is best known today for the magnificent Hindu temples built by the maharajas of Bardhaman— which you’ll experience today. After marveling at the astonishing Rajbari temple complex, you may opt to walk with your guide through the colorful local market.

Featured Excursion: India’s “Temple City”

Day 8 : Matiari

Your ship serves as a time machine today, transporting you hundreds of years into the past, as we travel to the authentic artisan village of Matiari.

Featured Excursion: Matiari master craftsmen with an introduction to brass

Day 9: Murshidabad - Baranagar

Today’s adventures take you to a duo of Bengali towns—Murshidabad and Baranagar—each one boasting surprising and beautiful architectural monuments closely linked to the ruling families of the area.

Featured Excursion: Visit to Murshidabad City, ride by buggy to Katra Mosque and visit to Baranagar village

This evening, following dinner onboard, take in a lively Bollywood-style show, complete with music and dancing.

Day 10: The Ganges

One of the world’s most sacred bodies of water, the Ganges River flows through a myriad of small villages and highly populated cities throughout India and Bangladesh. Take in the remarkable scenery as you sail and be on the lookout for a rare sighting of the endangered Ganges river dolphin.

Wellness: You may choose to relax and unwind with a body massage or treatment onboard at the soothing Voyager Spa.

Day 11: Mayapur, Chandannagar, Kolkata

Few places of worship exist on such a head-spinning scale as what you will witness today in Mayapur, the center of the international Hare Krishna movement and home to the new Temple of the Vedic Planetarium, still under construction. Most students of history know a thing or two about the British colonial powers in India, but few are aware that the French had colonies here as well. You’ll visit this former French outpost today.

Featured Excursions: Hare Krishna and Temple of the Vedic Planetarium, India's French colonial heritage

Day 12: Kolkota

The city of Kolkata is synonymous with the enduring legacies of Mother Teresa and the colonial-era British Raj, both of which you will get better acquainted with today.

Featured Excursion: Kolkata city tour—visit the Flower Market, colonial sites and Kumartuli (Potter’s Colony)

Choice of NGO "Calcutta Rescue" visit -or- Mother Teresa’s home and tomb

Enjoy a Farewell dinner tonight.

Day 13: Kolkota (Disembarkation)

Your incredible Indian adventure ends early this morning, as you disembark and transfer to the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport for your flight home -or- extend your journey with an OPTIONAL extension to Varanasi.
