Vivada Cruise

Jayashree Sengupta
Longed for going on a cruise with your loved one and yet tight office schedules did not allow you to? Then Vivada jetty in Millenium Park, Kolkata has come to your rescue. River Ganges really does add an extra charm to the beauty of the city, be it Kolkata or Howrah. And an evening, sailing on the waters in a dainty illuminated cruise, down the Ganges is yet another way to surprise your beloved. The purple lit Howrah Bridge and the flickering fairy lights of the buildings ashore adds the perfect ambiance aboard.Vivada Cruises and Cross India Cruises offers the best river cruises in the city and offers both veg and non-veg platter. Vivada's fleet includes Paramhansa, Millenium, Matsakanya, Auspicious and Jaladuta. Cross India offers Desire, Matsakanya, Paramhansa, Millenium, Riviera, Sumangal and The Auspicious. I personally like Matsakanya and The Auspicious which could be booked through both.Cost: Breakfast and evening cruise- Rs. 1050 per person; Lunch and Dinner cruise- Rs. 1575 per person. Special Valentine package aboard "The Auspicious" at Rs. 3540 for two.
