For As Low As ₹10K, Soon You Can Travel To Dubai With Beypore-Kochi-Dubai Cruise Service

In the heart of the Arabian Sea, a maritime adventure unfolds with the introduction of the Beypore-Kochi-Dubai cruise service. The Central government has approved the Beypore-Kochi-Dubai cruise route, signalling a new age for Malayalis going into the realm of luxury marine travel, in a big development for cruise fans in Kerala and in the lowest fare possible.

Relief From Soaring Airfares

Several airlines sell economy-class flight tickets from Kerala to Dubai for between 11,000 and 20,000 rupees. Many expats have been hit hard with expensive airfares during busy vacation seasons. The cruise service seeks to give a practical answer by providing a more cost-effective mode of transportation and allowing travellers to purchase a one-way ticket for as little as ₹10,000. This engagement with freight businesses increases the service’s practicality and price.

According to an article published by Mint, following constant demand from non-resident Indian customers, Union Shipping Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said that the initial procedures to begin the cruise ship service are underway. The ship will arrive in Kerala in around three days. The goal is to ensure that Indian expats in the UAE can travel to their home country without having to pay expensive airline fees.

The proposed cruise service is expected to assist non-resident Keralites who frequently face exorbitant airfares when travelling between Kerala and Dubai. If the cruise begins operations, it will be a cost-effective alternative, costing only one-third the price of an airline ticket. Furthermore, passengers can benefit from carrying three times the amount of luggage permitted on an aeroplane. The service is expected to carry up to 1,250 passengers and will use a fully outfitted vessel designed exclusively for the Kochi-Dubai route. Notably, the vessel, which was initially built in Kochi for a different state, has been repurposed for this critical Kerala Gulf operation.

The Beypore-Kochi-Dubai cruise service steps in as a cost-effective solution, providing an alternative means of transportation that combines leisure and exploration without breaking the bank. For those seeking an affordable yet luxurious travel option, the cruise service becomes a game-changer.

Cruise travel and tourism have experienced a remarkable resurgence in recent years, with the industry undergoing significant growth and innovation. The allure of cruising lies in its ability to offer a unique and immersive travel experience. It combines the comforts of luxury travel with the excitement of exploring diverse destinations.

For this, by facilitating travel, the cruise service not only benefits passengers but also boosts regional tourism. Local businesses in these coastal cities gain from increased footfall, creating a ripple effect that supports the economies of these regions. This aligns with the broader trend of promoting sustainable and responsible tourism.

Moreover, traditional air travel often means bypassing the sights and experiences between the departure and arrival points. In contrast, the cruise service encourages passengers to explore Beypore and Kochi, two culturally rich destinations, during their journey. This adds a layer of depth to the travel experience. Additionally, it transforms what would be a mere transit into an opportunity for cultural immersion and discovery.

So, what do you think of this new route?
