Kerala in a bid to boost tourism, and aid international travel, the Government of Kerala has granted permission for a new cruise service from Kochi to Dubai. The service is called Beypore-Kochi-Dubai cruise service and is expected to begin in December 2024. Approval was granted after witnessing a surge in demand from non-resident Indian passengers.

The report also confirmed that the first step towards introducing service is being taken, and the same has been announced by Union Shipping Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.

The service will cover a distance of 4000 km and take around 3days to reach Kerala from Dubai. The cruise is expected to accommodate up to 1,250 passengers who will be allowed to carry luggage up to 200 kg. The one-way ticket of the cruise will cost around INR 10,000 (Dh 442).

This initiative is aimed at providing a cost-effective travel option for non-resident Indian passengers. It is expected to give a big relief to the soaring airfare, and will cost them half or one-third of any airplane tickets. Under this amount, the cruise will allow them to carry three times more luggage than any airplane.

It has also been said the ship will hardly three days to reach its destination. Meanwhile, the report says the ship has been specially designated for the Kochi-Dubai route only. Its vessel was created in Kochi for another state. However, now it has shifted to use in Kerala Gulf services.
