IRCTC to launch India’s first indigenous luxury cruise liner

The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) will launch the country’s first indigenous cruise liner from Saturday, in partnership with Cordelia Cruises – a private company.

The bookings can be done from the IRCTC web portal soon as the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) normalises and international cruises can resume their normal operations, reports the PTI news agency.

The luxury travel offering in the form of the indigenous cruise will take guests on-boards to some of the most popular Indian and international tourist destinations.

As of now, the IRCTC will travel to tourist spots like Goa, Diu, Lakshadweep, Kochi, and Sri Lanka with its base from Mumbai.

In the second phase, starting from May 2022, the cruise will be shifted to Chennai and it will sail to Sri Lankan destinations like Colombo, Galle, Trincomalee, and Jaffna.
