The Indian government, as a part of its Mission ‘Begin Again’, will be permitting cruise ships to commence sailing from October 1. Jalesh Cruises announced the commencement of its cruise ship MV Karnika from Friday, November 6, 2020.
The cruise will offer free COVID-19 testing
Jalesh Cruises will offer free rapid Covid-19 and other flu-related testing to all passengers during embarkation. Passengers will receive their test results in 15 minutes.
Jurgen Bailom, President and CEO, Jalesh Cruises, said, “The announcement by the Indian government to permit sailing by cruise companies comes as a fresh breath of air to all of us. We have been waiting to set sail with passengers and we eagerly wait for November. The health and safety of our passengers and our crew have been and will always be our priority. I would like to reassure our valued guests that they would not find a safer and cleaner ship than Karnika. We eagerly wait to welcome guests onboard Karnika with open arms and promise them an experience that will wipe away the gloom of the last few months. Our guests will return home invigorated, refreshed and all charged up after their oceanic voyage.”
MV Karnika has been in Mumbai, India since March 12, 2020, and has been in India ever since.
