Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has launched ‘cruise’ booking service to help tourists from across the country enjoy cruise trip to their dream coastal destinations at the reasonable fare. The IRCTC has signed an agreement with the Cordelia Cruises in this regard.

Senior public relations officer of the corporation, A K Jha, said the IRCTC and Cordelia Cruises will start running the first luxury ocean cruise in the country between Mumbai and Goa from September 6.

“One can book the cruise trip on IRCTC website. The trip between Mumbai and Goa will cost Rs 17,877 per person (inside state room), INR 25,488 per person (ocean view) and INR 31,506 per person (balcony),” Jha said.

Cordelia Cruise is the first indigenous luxury cruise which the IRCTC has decided to collaborate with for cruise trips on various routes like Mumbai-Diu, Kochi-Lakshadweep, Mumbai-Lakshadweep, Chennai-Colombo, Chennai-Jaffna, Mumbai at Sea and Chennai at Sea.

“In the first phase, the cruise service will only be for Indian destinations with its base in Mumbai. It will later move to Chennai in May 2022 to facilitate cruise trips to Sri Lankan destinations,” Jha added.

He added, “The Cordelia Cruise will have facilities like restaurant, swimming pool, bar, open cinema, theatre, kids’ area and gym. The IRCTC will also ensure that appropriate Covid behaviour is maintained by the tourists aboard the ship.” Jha hoped that people from Bihar will also avail the cruise service by booking tickets.
