A carnival onboard has been planned with party games and pool games all day long. The cruises promise all-night fun with ‘War of the DJs’ on the open deck. Guests can party till the wee hours of the morning. It will be an ideal place for people to celebrate the long weekend or special occasions with family and friends. We are educating our trade partners and are looking for tremendous support from them as it is one of the first of its kind with loads of fun and games.”
