Goa is one of the most visited tourist places in India. Generally we prefer traveling by Air or train which costs us an approx amount of Rs.2, 500 by train and Rs.7000/- by air. But now there is more to it. You can now travel on a luxury cruise and to provide you a dream ride; Indias first luxury cruise has been launched. The declaration was made on October 1. Angriya, the lavish domestic cruise left for its first journey on 12th October from the Purple Gate of Mumbais Indira Docks at 5:00 pm. It has a 16 hours journey and reaches the Mormugao in South Goa as the final destination at around 9:00 pm.The cruise is named after Kanhoji Angre, or Conajee Angria, the first Admiral of the Maratha Navy. The cruise has a total of 104 cabins for accommodation; the cabins are designed in different categories. You can choose from dorms and pods to family rooms and suites. The luxury of this cruise can be experienced and enjoyed by 400 people on a single voyage.

Price and Luxury it offers

The cruise is priced affordably as per my views. It costs approximately from Rs 7,000, (for a bed in the dorm) to Rs 11,000 (for a suite). It also includes the cost of three meals- breakfast, snacks, evening meal and dinner. There are two restaurants on the cruise that also offer buffet meals with their specialty in Chinese, Continental, and Konkani cuisines. And how can we miss the six bountiful bars on board, its a dream ride and everyone must experience it at least once.The luxury doesnt end here; you can dive into an infinity pool or relax at a spa. Girls and ladies can pamper themselves with manicure-pedicure. The ship comes decked up with indoor games, round-the-clock cafs and restaurants. You just cant get bored on this cruise.The ship was made in Japan and has been in service since 1997. But finally the ship has been repurposed and refitted with best-in-class comfort amenities by theMumbai Port Trust.

First of many to come

While the Mumbai-Goa cruise is the first-of-its-kind service in India, it certainly wont be the last. The Indian government is planning to launch a number of such services if it becomes a success.
