River Cruise Itinerary

Complex and beguiling, India is a country unlike any other. Wondrous sights rich in romance and intrigue come alive in the “Golden Triangle”—Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra. Delhi’s immense red sandstone marble tomb, commissioned by Emperor Humayun’s grief-stricken wife, will capture your heart, while Raj Ghat, a black granite memorial to the “Father of the Nation,” Mahatma Gandhi, will stir your soul. Jaipur’s Pink City and Agra’s Taj Mahal, a grand tribute to love, will leave you forever mesmerized. Start your trip with five luxurious nights at three different award-winning Oberoi hotels. Enjoy a rare opportunity to see the Taj Mahal two times—once at sunrise and once at sunset. Once onboard, travel to villages lining the Ganges River that only a few people get to see each year and experience our new Wellness Program, centered around the destination’s ancient tradition and practice of yoga.

The Uniworld cruise in India was really nice. The hotels that we stayed at on the land portion were probably the best hotels that I have ever stayed at. The service on the ship was excellent and the tour manager was great. The only issue that we had was the air pollution. I wore an N95 mask most of the time. I didn't wear it on the bus trip to the airport leaving the Varanasi extension and that was enough to get a very bad respiratory congestion and sore throat. I would suggest that anyone going to India wear their mask EVERY time they are outside.
