It’s going to be one heck of a wonderful experience for the passengers as they can travel in a Cruise very soon from Kolkata to Guwahati. Apart from travelling on trains or flights between the two cities, Cruise offers you another option for travelling. You can also take a cruise that sails all the way to Bangladesh as well.
The vessels and the ships will kick-off their trip from Kolkata to reach Guwahati via Haldia and Barisal in Kolkata to Dhaka in Bangladesh.
According to a report in Money Control, Pravir Pandey, chairman of Indian Water Authority of India said, “The cruise will be connected by three rivers – Ganga, Jamuna in Bangladesh and Brahmaputra in India”. The report went on to add that the cruise will fully function from March 29th, 2019.
“The two countries have reached an understanding, through a standard operating procedure (SOP), for movement of passenger and cruise vessels on Inland Protocol route and coastal shipping route,” told Gopal Krishna, Secretary, Ministry of Shipping while addressing the reporters.
Just a week ago, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis inaugurated India’s first ever domestic luxury cruise liner that operates from Mumbai to Goa.
