GANGES VOYAGER II Ship Review
GANGES VOYAGER II Overview
Ganges Voyager II set sail on the Ganges River in January 2016. Uniworld is the first major river cruise company to offer itineraries in India.
The 185-foot long vessel carries up to 56 passengers and has three decks. It’s the smallest ship in Uniworld’s fleet in terms of length. However, it’s about 4 feet wider than most European river cruise ships.
