The first domestic cruise vessel service, Angriya, will begin from Mumbai’s new domestic cruise terminal on a test run on Wednesday at 5 pm and arrived at Goa on Thursday morning.
There are seven categories of room available out of which people can choose according to their pocket. People can also two scrumptious meals, and a brunch, and swim in the pool on the open deck while gazing at the vast Konkan coastline. The ship’s staff, and its sailor-owner, Captain Nitin Dhond, will also amuse you with interesting stories about the region’s history.
The cruise vessel comprises of a lounge, attached to one of the restaurants that can be used for celebrations such as wedding receptions to corporate conferences and offshore business meetings.
Angriya is owned by Angriya Sea Eagle Private Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sea Eagle Cruises. This is a company which aims to help eco-tourists learn about the biodiversity of Goa. The cruise focuses to tap the holiday travel market, with local and foreign tourists in mind.
Naturally, this is not a pocket-friendly option. A base-price ticket aboard this vessel will cost you around Rs 7,000 or more. Sea Eagle’s Director, Siddharth Newalkar, explained the Financial Express that the pricing is still not fixed. According to him, once the marketing strategy is complete, price points will be set. Schedules and timings of the cruise would also be set once the test run is done.
The tourist arrival to Goa has been increasing with every year. Foreign ships often have Goa on their list of visiting places, and on an average, Goa receives around 15-20 cruise vessels every year. Chartered flights have raised its manifold there have by now been 808 chartered flights in the financial year 2018, as opposed to around 988 in the financial year 2017.
Well, the ticket may actually seem sheer in contrast, to the Rs 1,000-3,000 price range of bus and train tickets, or the Rs 3,000-7,000 price range of off-season flight tickets. Although it is not always the place that matters, it is the journey which gives the shape of the trip. So actually think about how peaceful and memorable yours will be, devoid of too many nosy co-passengers to shatter the calm. Instead of arriving in Goa, tired and shattered you will reach fresh and rejuvenated and all set up for a great holiday. So choosing this cruise is a must to get a lifetime experience.
