An en­ter­tain­ment cruise called ‘The Big Bang Nau­ti­cal Fi­esta’ is avail­able for the trade to be sold to tourists who are look­ing to have a car­ni­val at sea. Mumbai-based Ark Trav­els is ex­cited to bring this spe­cial ‘The Big Bang Nau­ti­cal Fi­esta’ cruise to the travel agents as it will be the first en­ter­tain­ment cruise by Ark Trav­els in al­liance with Star Cruises. Kis­han Biyani, MD, Ark Trav­els, says, “We are in­tro­duc­ing a new con­cept of en­ter­tain­ment cruises for which we have char­tered two sail­ing of Su­per­Star Gem­ini ex Sin­ga­pore on Au­gust 10, 2016 and Au­gust 14, 2016. These sail­ings will add more fun, en­ter­tain­ment and food in ad­di­tion to the nor­mal in­clu­sions on­board Star Cruises.”

The 2016, sail­ing is a nor­mal two night’s cruise to Port Klang and Au­gust 14, 2016, is a three nights sail­ing to Pe­nang and Port Klang. He added that Star Cruises has been over the years recog­nised as a brand among the masses and it un­der­stands the needs of the In­dian cus­tomers. “They are flex­i­ble in their ap­proach, thus lend­ing sup­port to the cor­po­rate com­pa­nies as well as the travel fra­ter­nity. Be it an In­dian wed­ding or a prod­uct launch or a film shoot­ing, Star Cruises has sat­is­fied all seg­ments and de­liv­ered on all counts,” Biyani adds.

Speak­ing about the fun quo­tient on­board this ex­clu­sive cruise, Anju Tan­don, CEO, Ark Trav­els, says, “There will be Bol­ly­wood/Tol­ly­wood celebri­ties on­board to per­form and en­ter­tain the guests. 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.”

Ac­cord­ing to Biyani, cruise tourism has grown by 14 per cent last year and he is ex­pect­ing a growth of 8 to 10 per cent in the year 2016. Dream Cruises is touch­ing Mumbai port in Oc­to­ber this year. Star Cruises is show­cas­ing its new­est ship, its of­fer­ing an op­por­tu­nity for In­di­ans to sail ex-Mumbai to CMB and Sin­ga­pore. Ark Trav­els ex­pects the num­bers to grow from In­dia with Dream Cruises sail­ing ex-Nan­sha from Novem­ber.
