We had the greatest time aboard the Ganges Voyager II. I would rate it 5. Ajay Paliwal, our Cruise Director was awesome. He was always available to address any concerns we had.

The boat looked a bit like Mississippi River Boat Queen meets Hindu Luxury and Artful Fantasy. Our State Room was very comfy with large bathroom and excellent shower. The food was excellent with many choices for both Indian Cuisine and International. We felt very fortunate and pampered!

The ship was not 5 star, while the food, entertainment, and staff were good. The ship was very ordinary. The river cruise was disappointing as we passed and visited very poor villages with huge amounts of trash and viewed dead cows and horses float by our window. The tour director was disorganized and often would change times or forget to tell us about changes or other activities that were offered. He was difficult to understand and seemed to view himself as a comedian instead of his appointed job. This ship and itinerary was not what I expected from Uniworld after hearing and reading reviews on other Uniworld cruises.
