Luxury Ganga Cruise from Kolkata to Patna

In an effort to explore the riverine routes of Bengal and Bihar, the West Bengal government has launched its open-waterway policy with the exciting river cruise from Kolkata to Patna sometime in mid-February. For years, waterway in the Gangetic Plains has remained unutilized. The state government has signed MoU with Assam Bengal Navigation that forms one of the most premier luxury river cruise operators in the eastern region of India.

The luxury cruise is all set to touch the significant heritage destinations of Bengal. The cruise is pegged at Rs 11,500 per person for a single night and includes all luxury facilities. It will make stopovers at Barrackpore, Chandarnagore, Kalna, Nabadwip, Mayapur, Plassey, Murshidabad, Farakka, Bhagalpur, Monghyr and eventually reach Patna. It would take seven days to reach Farakka and another eight days to make it to Patna. The vessel is well-equipped with restaurants, bar, salon and spa.

The state government is acting as a facilitator in the luxury cruise and would extend all support in receiving statutory clearances within shortest time. It has also signed MoU with another luxury cruise, Heritage River Cruise.
