Cruise tourism expected to expand in India

Published on : Monday, November 12, 2018

Cruise tourism is expected to expand in India and it is anticipated that as many as 3 lakh Indians might go on an international cruise vacation by 2020. India as a source market is estimated to be around 1.70 lakh guests currently for cruise tourism, against China’s 2.7 million.

 

Citing a report from the UNWTO, a senior official of the India representative of the Royal Caribbean Cruises, Tirun, said that outbound travel from India will hit 50 million by 2020, making it one of the world’s fastest-growing outbound markets. To quote Varun Chadha, the chief operating officer at Tirun, “So we are looking at almost 3 lakh Indians to take an international cruise vacation by 2020.”

 

He further said like China, India has great potential in cruise tourism and it’s exciting when India opens up its shores. China grew from 4 lakh to 2.7 million in just under a decade.

 

Chadha expects the domestic cruising market to expand hugely, with the government also serious on developing this sector.
