The New Cruise Ship in the Making


Currently under construction in Kolkata, we're looking forward to welcome the newest ship to our fleet – ABN Charaidew II – later this year.

Charaidew was the name of the first capital of the Ahom Kingdom, which was established in 1228. Today, this kingdom is better known as the state of Assam in India's Brahmaputra valley, tucked away in the northeastern reaches of the country.


This is a 3D rendering of Charaidew II. She will be the fourth addition to our fleet of three cruise ships.

ABN Charaidew II also happens to be the successor to the grand old lady of our fleet, ABN Charaidew. She began sailing the Brahmaputra river in 2003, making her the pioneering ship for long-distance Indian river cruising.

Much loved by guests for her character and charm, ABN Charaidew will be converted into a floating hotel in January 2019, moored at Majuli – one of the world's largest river islands and a microcosm of Assamese culture.

We look forward to welcoming you on our Brahmaputra cruises aboard ABN Charaidew II.
