If you have been longing for a good vacay, a tropical getaway or a quick escape from the lulls of city life, we have news for you. You can now take a cruise from Mumbai to Surat and back, right from the new Bandra Worli sea link to chase away the city blues.
Cruises and boat rides are just the thing everyone longs to enjoy, and with this news it's time to finally take that much needed vacay! Especially with the winters right around the corner. Although Mumbai isn't a city where we experience much 'cold', the nip in the air makes us miss the warm sun terribly.
What's the update?
A luxury and leisure cruise service between Mumbai and Surat was flagged off from Surat on November 15th. The cruise will be taken up by 'Mumbai Maiden' a wonderful beast of a cruise vessel of SSR marine services and the cruise has already begun.
The cruise ship will have two decks, an open sky lounge and would pass from the newly constructed Bandra Worli sea link. The weekly service will start from the Bandra Worli sea link every Thursday at 5 pm and reach Hazira port at 9 am on Friday. On the next trip leaving the Hazira port at 5 pm on Friday and reaching Bandra Worli sea link at 9 am, Saturday.
As of now, the cruise is only a weekly affair, however, if a strong demand of the same is felt, the frequency of the cruise service might be increased in the coming days.
Cruises and ships are associated with wealth, with vacation and fun. We often look at cruise holidays in movies and wonder when we too can head for a similar extravaganza. If you have the luxury of time, a few extra bucks and have always wanted to go on a cruise, here is your chance!
