ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsFancy luxury cruises are something we haven't had in India ever, so mostly all the desi people here have to go to other countries to experience the chill life on the seas. But finally, someone has stepped up in bringing one of the most luxurious things to India and I mean, I just have to say one thing – it was about time. The country's first cruise line between Mumbai and Goa is ready to set sail in less than two weeks and its first pictures are here, and they truly are breath-taking. The ship named Angriya will go on its maiden voyage on 12th October. Also, the name is not random as it's rather symbolic. Angriya is named after Kanhoji Angre, or Conajee Angria, the first Admiral of the Maratha Navy. He was called a pirate by the foreign troops but at home, he was the 'Shivaji Samudra', or Shivaji of the Indian Ocean. It has six decks and is meant to ferry 399 passengers. It also has over a 100 cabins in a lot of different categories, ranging from dorms and pods to family rooms and suites. From an infinity pool to a well-equipped spa to a quiet reading room, so basically everything you need to relax. But that doesn't mean it's all about having some downtime onboard; there are six bars and a lounge to turn up as well. A one-way ticket for the cruise will approximately cost anywhere between Rs 7,000 (for a bed in the dorm) to Rs 11,000 (for a suite) per person, which includes three meals.
