ABN Charaidew II


The ABN Charaidew II is the latest ship to join the Assam Bengal Navigation’s fleet. She is based on the original Charaidew, a passenger ship built in the 1970’s for long distance voyages for the wealthy including the President of India. With 18 elegantly appointed cabins, the Charaidew is well-suited to the challenging conditions of the River Brahmaputra for which she was designed. Extensive use has been made of eco-friendly laminated bamboo panelling, while most fabrics are hand-woven by tribal people in remote villages.


Lounge/bar; dining room; semi-shaded sundeck with seating and sun loungers; spa treatment room, small gym room.

All standard cabins have French balconies, and the two deluxe cabins have private balconies.

It was absolutely amazingly fabulous. Wonderful, wonderful sightings of The Ghost. We were so very very fortunate and privileged to have been able to see, not once but each day this amazing cat. Words really cannot describe the trip. I have wanted to do it for so long and not only did it come about but I had spectacular views of the premier Cat. I cannot thank you enough for making a dream come true.
