Cruises In Goa And Other States To Start Sailing By May

There is hope for the domestic cruise industry which was badly hit because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The New York-based Sant Chatwal Group which is the newest introduction in the Indian cruise industry aims to have cruise ships sail between Goa, Mumbai, Lakshwadeep and Sri Lanka which will be under the brand ‘Cordelia Cruises’. Cordelia Cruises has bought the ‘Empress of the Seas’ cruise ship from Royal Caribbean International.

These cruises will start operating from the month of May. This will generate employment for Goans and foster tourism.

The two companies who started cruises between Goa and Mumbai – Jalesh Cruises and Angriya Cruises – were badly affected by the pandemic. At the moment, Angriya Cruises is being used as a hotel in the middle of the sea (floatel) for sailors. They are hopeful to start cruises again by the middle of this year.

“As we speak, we are getting the crew geared up, getting their documentation in place and all their paperwork ready in order to join for the May sailing season. All the staff that was working on Jalesh will move to Cordelia and the news is that they have bought a second sister ship and that will join shortly,” said Fondekar, a person who runs a company that hires people for cruise lines.
