Join ME to WE for a one-of-a-kind adventure in India's countryside for the first four days of our traditional India cruise/tour. ME to WE offers an immersive and transformative experience where you'll explore India's vibrant and fascinating culture through unforgettable encounters. In rural Udaipur, you'll settle into the stunning Araveli Cottages and Tented Camp-luxury accommodations boasting Indian d‚cor with a royal Rajasthani flair. Prepare for your time with ME to WE with a lesson in basic Hindi phrases before venturing out to the local village to mingle with community members. You'll wake up the next day to a sunrise yoga session overlooking the pink-hued Aravalli Mountain Range prior to spending the rest of your morning with women in the community learning first-hand what life is like in rural India. After savoring traditional Indian cuisine, you'll meet a local farmer who will lead you to the site of your sustainable development project. Discover the allure of Udaipur, affectionately called the "Venice of the East," on a sightseeing excursion by boat and foot.
When your time with ME to WE ends, you'll board the lavish Ganges Voyager II and head to the site of Kalna's magnificent Hindu temples. Meander through Matiari's authentic artisan village, Murshidabad's and Baranagar's architectural monuments and Mayapur's captivating Temple of the Vedic Planetarium- the center of the international Hare Krishna movement. Discover why the French planted roots in Kolkata with a visit to the former French outpost before exploring the enduring legacies of Mother Teresa. Visit her home, where she lived and worked for decades and marvel at the museum dedicated to her, where her Nobel Peace Prize sits proudly on display.
Onboard, you'll also enjoy our new Wellness Program, centered around the destination's ancient tradition and practice of yoga. Available on every sailing, the complimentary Wellness Program - led by a certified and resident yogi - will celebrate the holistic health benefits of yoga with daily sessions introducing the different types of yoga, group lectures and classes as well as individualized meetings, so that guests at every stage of their practice can participate in this culturally immersive program comfortably. An accompanying "Nutrition and Wellness Food" menu has also been developed especially for this program. Featuring organic items and guidelines for eating healthy, the menu will be available daily during breakfast, lunch and dinner service.
With accommodations inspired by the grace and elegance of the British colonial period, the all-suite, 56-passenger Ganges Voyager II is one of only two ultra-luxurious ships serving the Ganges. Built-to-order in 2015, this ultra-luxurious ship was custom-designed to serve Uniworld's new 2016 "India's Golden Triangle and the Sacred Ganges" itinerary.
