Jalesh Cruises is to be the first Indian cruise operator to take a cruise ship to Ganpatipule (in Maharashtra) and Diu this autumn.

Karnika, which debuted with a maiden cruise from Mumbai to Goa this April and then spent four months sailing to destinations in the Middle East, will return to the city of Mumbai to begin a series of new cruises on 20 September. Following a cruise to Goa, the vessel will make the maiden calls in Ganpatipule this October and Diu this November.

“We are extremely excited to offer new and unexplored cruise destinations to our guests in India,” said Jurgen Bailom, president and CEO of Jalesh Cruises. “Being India’s first premium cruise line, we are focused on offering our guests the best of the country’s vast coastline. Karnika will be the first domestic ship to sail to Ganpatipule in Maharashtra and Diu, thereby opening up new cruising frontiers in India for our guests to enjoy and for others to follow.”

Karnika will also offer Diwali and Christmas voyages from Mumbai to Muscat, as well as a sailing from Dubai in the United Arab Emirates to Mumbai to celebrate the new year.
