FAQ

ø
When does the Cruise Operate?
A
The Cruise operates from November to April every year.
ø
Is there any cut down on the number of the sightseeing trips mentioned originally in the itinerary, if there are only few pax booked on the cruise?
A

No, the itinerary is not cut down nor any changes made in it once a departure is confirmed.

ø
Do you have English speaking Guides provided during the sightseeing?
A

Yes there are English speaking Escorts / Guides who are always there with the guests during the sightseeing.

ø
What happens when there are French/German-speaking clients and they want to have French/German Speaking Guides?
A
French or German speaking guides can be provided with an extra cost subject to availability. Or otherwise in case of Group Bookings, the same may be arranged by the FTO/ITO.
ø
Is there any show on board?
A
We have Cultural Dance performances onboard on our cruises. In addition to this, we have enlightening Guest Lectures, Yoga Sessions, Cooking Demonstrations, Traditional Dress Wear Demonstrations, etc onboard during the cruises.
ø
In case of a health problem, what is the solution?
A
We consider that medical insurance cover is essential for all Guests. We carry First-Aid equipment and few basic medicines. There are now modern private hospitals in Guwahati and other Indian cities. In case of any serious medical emergency we can transfer guests to the nearest hospital using our mechanized boat and vehicles. Depending on the location of vessel this might take less than an hour to several hours. We expect our guests to be reasonably fit to negotiate the steps onboard the vessel, the bumpy roads during jeep safaris, riding on elephants, taking village walks on foot, etc.
ø
What types of vehicles are used for surface transfers?
A
All surface transfers are done in Deluxe AC Coach.
ø
What types of cuisine and food are served on the Cruise?
A
Indian, Continental and Assamese Cuisines are served on the cruise.
ø
What about Mobile and Internet Accessibility?
A
The mobile and internet connectivity are available during the cruise though at some stretches signals may be low or unavailable.
ø
Are there any online payment options available onboard?
A
Yes, we do have onboard payment options but the same depends on the availability of network. Guests are therefore suggested to carry minimum cash for the purchase of any handlooms (from the village or the onboard Souvenir Shop), alcoholic beverages, camera fees, laundry, etc.
ø
Are there any FOREX Services available onboard?
A

No, we do not have any FOREX Services onboard. Guests are advised to carry Indian Currency while touring onboard M. V. Manashputra.

ø
How shall I grade the Tour?
A
The nature of this holiday – based aboard M. V. Manashputra is essentially relaxing! However, a fairly full programme of ‘land excursions’ is offered within the itinerary and these include cultural walks, boat journeys, jeep safaris and elephant rides (subject to availability). Those wishing to participate in all the activities will need to be reasonably fit, mobile and healthy. It should be noted, however, that all activities are essentially optional, allowing you to pick and choose those that you wish to join.
ø
How will be the Weather during the Tour?
A
Dry and sunny weather is expected throughout this holiday, although it will be chilly in the early mornings and evenings. (Assam receives one of the highest rainfalls in the world and there is perhaps no season that can genuinely be considered a dry season in Assam).
ø
What type of Clothing is suggested for the Tour?
A
Lightweight clothing for daytime wear; however, warm clothes will be needed for early mornings and evenings which can be very chilly.

During visits to the Parks, Khaki and other "bush" colours are recommended, as bright colours can often scare the animals.
