We did a 7 night upstream cruise aboard the MV Mahabaahu the highlight of which was the time spent in the Kaziranga National Park. The early morning elephant ride followed by the jeep safari was excellent - a bird watchers paradise plus, of course, sightings of the endangered white rhinos - a most enjoyable day. The time spent on Majuli Island was also interesting and thoroughly enjoyable. Apart from the early start for the National Park, the cruise is relaxing and peaceful with only short trips off the boat on most days, wildlife can also sometimes be seen from the boat - look out for the river Dolphins.

We visited Brahmaputra when we were in Guwahati on a holiday trip this summer. River is beautiful with some nice views. There are restaurants in the boats. Everyday there is a cruise trip for which timings need to be checked in advance & must be pre-booked. They also have live music on it.

We travelled with friends from Silghat to Neamati on the Brahmaputra using ABN Charaidew. If you are expecting the glamour and glitz of P&O or Cunard,move along now there’s nothing to see here.If however you want to travel in a small group (there are only 12 cabins on the ship) and want the reminiscence of the Raj (in decor etc) this is the one for you. You must however remember that you are in India and things work differently there.There were only 10 of us on board for our trip with a crew of 26 to care for us.The catering and hospitality staff,all locally recruited from nearby areas,bent over backwards to make our trip really memorable.Some were a little short of English skills but were able to understand most requests The guide,naturalist and tour manager were well versed in their jobs and were able to impart a lot of information The ship itself ( built in 1973 and refurbished in 2003) did tend to show its age but the decor was good,mostly wood panelling and flooring.But Hey you’re in India and you go with the flow or you sit and whinge and be miserable.The tender,AKA the country boat,was a real experience and the two regular crew on it were really on top of the handling of it.The travel by vehicles during the trip was a real eye opener and the drivers were excellent in the daunting traffic conditions where it was question of which would have to be replaced first on the vehicle,the horn which was in constant use or the suspension as the potholes in the road made British potholes look like scratches in the tarmac. We enjoyed every minute of the trip,from the 0545 wakening when the generators were fired up to 2300 when they were shut down for the night.The chef in particular was excellent and provided 3 excellent meals every day ,not just Indian but truly international. The big caveat on this cruise is that you must remember that you are in India and accept the way of life otherwise you are wasting your money because if you didn’t take notice of my first statement and expect European style river cruising you will have a miserable time and no one likes a moaner on such an intimate cruise
