Cruise tourismFour important ports like Mumbai, New Mangalore, Mormugaon and Cochin and their recently developed terminals are being expected to enhance cruise tourism in the coming days. Foreign vessels were also allowed to come in without license. To add to it, a new cruise terminal in Chennai port is in the process of completion.

To quote Nitin Gadkari Minister of Shipping, ‘’ To attract cruise lines/ships as a part of cruise tourism in India, the government has developed cruise terminals at four major ports namely Mumbai Port, Mormugaon Port, New Mangalore Port and Cochin Port.”

To promote cruise tourism, a special task force has been created by Ministries of Shipping and Tourism. In addition, a consultant has also been appointed to identify domestic and international cruise circuits via action plan.

To quote Gadkari, ‘’ To attract cruise liners to make major ports as homeports, the major ports provide rebate of 25 per cent in vessel related charges for coastal cruise movement. This will be in addition to the 40 per cent existing rebate for coastal vessels.’’
