Review of RV Charaidew

RV Charaidew cruise ship (commonly known as "the grand old lady") is a 38-meter long, steel hulled, twin-engined vessel. It is owned by the ABN (Assam Bengal Navigation) company and often chartered by the UK travel company "Noble Caledonia". The ship is based in India for cruises on Brahmaputra River (transboundary river) in South Asia. Itineraries are round-trips leaving from Kolkata, India.RV Charaidew river cruise ship, Brahmaputra  River, India

This river ship was built along traditional lines: it is airy and light throughout, as well as completely comfortable. There is a spacious and cozy saloon looking out over ship's bows, with outside space that is reached via sliding glass doors. There is a bar in the saloon, while in another corner is the location of a well-stocked library. A rich DVD collection is available for playing on the big TV set.

Charaidew's top deck is an expansive Sun deck with rich amounts of seating both outside and shaded, as well as a bar for soft drinks and beer, while coffee and tea are always available. Laundry service is also available onboard. 

The riverboat has 12 air-conditioned staterooms, all located on the upper deck (2). Cabin amenities include a hairdryer, safe, and en suite facilities including shower. The single seating dining room is on Charaidew's lower deck and serves a mixture of continental and Assamese cuisine. A vegetarian option is always included. Most dietary requirements are accommodated given previous notice. 

Note: You can see the CruiseMapper's list of all river cruise ships and riverboats in the "itinerary" section of our River Cruises hub. All companies and their fleets are listed there.
