India’s very own and first cruise line AMET CRUISES was launched in Chennai, recently, by AMET Shipping Private Limited. The luxury cruise, M V AMET Majesty, will sail from Chennai to destinations such as Srilanka, Maldives, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and more.
Foreign cruise liners have touched just one or two Indian ports but these have been few and remained the prerogative of the rich and the affluent. Launching the cruise line in Chennai, Dr J Ramachandran, Chairman, AMET Shipping India Private Limit ed, stated that it was the privilege of the group to pioneer tourism in the country.’’ AMET CRUISES is India’s first cruise line that seeks to introduce a new format of holiday, recreation and entertainment in the country…for the burgeoning urban middle class households’’ observed Dr. J Ramachandran.
Capt. Bhardwaj, Vice Chancellor, AMET University says, “This ship is certified to carry over 1000 passengers on international voyage.” He is also very confident that cruise tourism will accelerate holiday options for the middle class, who now view foreign holidays as viable and affordable.
