According to Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport & Highways, Shipping and Water Resources, talks with the Indonesian government are ongoing to roll out this cruise route soon. He said, “I have met a minister from Indonesia. We have initiated the idea of starting a cruise from Mumbai to Andaman & Nicobar via Goa and Kochi. The ships can go up to Bali, Indonesia”.

Gadkari wants to boost cruise tourism in India. He says that Indians go to Singapore, Hong Kong, and Thailand for cruises and otherwise also South-East Asia is one of the most visited places for Indian tourists. He wants to capitalise on that and provide Indians chance to enjoy a cruise as well as visit their favourite South East Asian vacation destinations.
