It was six weeks ago that Louis Sea Cruises began operations, taking tourists on enchanting trips to Maldives and Colombo. The cruise programmes, which began with much fanfare, was like a whiff of fresh air as far as Kerala tourism was concerned. The news created quite a buzz everywhere and the response was overwhelming. An estimated 12,000 people were attracted to the luxury cruise on board the cruise-liner MV Aquamarine.
Now, when the cruise programme is going full-swing, here comes news that has dampened spirits of people who were making plans to be part of it all. Louis Sea Cruises beats a temporary retreat from the shores of Kerala, upsetting thousands of people who were planning family events and parties on board the luxury cruise-liner. But this retreat, happening on January 17th, will be a temporary one, with Louis Cruises planning to make a comeback in October this year.
Anyway, before bidding adieu to the shores of Kerala, Louis Luxury Cruises operates something special, a cruise that will enable tourists to experience the solar eclipse from the sea, slated for this week.
The Louis Cruises, for the people of Kerala, has turned out to be the case of experiencing the best of things in the briefest time possible. People of Kerala had welcomed cruise tourism with open arms and even the earlier post that I had made on this blog had received a good response. Experts opine that this much publicised, high-profile thing had done good to Kerala tourism, adding real big impetus to the industry as a whole.
Here’s hoping MV Aquamarine cruises back homeward bound into Kochi waters from wherever she docks till October.
