Night-at-Sea !! AMET Majesty, India’s first cruise ship !! Multi Cruiser !!. The cruise liner, owned by Chennai-based AMET Shipping India Pvt. Ltd, will initially run a one-night sailing trip on the Chennai high seas starting Thursday, followed by a similar service in Vizag.
MV AMET Majesty, India’s first cruise ship, plans to set sail from its home port in Chennai to destinations in Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, as it seeks to tap demand from rich Indian holidayers and provide training to maritime students.
The fun of having vacation in the blue waters of Bay of Bengal watching the panoramic beauty of Konaseema and Eastern Ghats from see-through cruise liner may become a reality with the State government deciding to introduce cruise service between Visakhapatnam and Kakinada. Though the plan was conceived earlier, it was shelved for a variety of reasons mainly for not getting suitable place for anchoring of the cruise liner.
AMET Shipping, which brought its cruise liner AMET Majesty from Chennai for a ‘night-at-sea’ exposure for select group of people in 2011, had experienced a lot of difficulty in first getting clearance to berth it and later attaching gangway (ladder) to it. The ship had docked at the Visakha Container Terminal.
This time we want to introduce cruise service between Visakhapatnam and Kakinada and later in Krishnapatnam area. Visakhapatnam is on top of our agenda in tourism promotion
Abundance of beaches, green-capped hillocks, Buddhist sites, and tribal locations would make Visakhapatnam one of the best tourist destinations in the country
