Cordelia Cruises Commends Tamil Nadu’s Infrastructure Development, Sets Course for Global Cruise Tourism

Cordelia Cruises, India’s premier cruise line, lauded the remarkable advancements in Tamil Nadu’s infrastructure and maritime sector, as highlighted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the inauguration of several key developmental projects.

With the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Modi and the steadfast backing of Union Minister of Ports, Shipping & Waterways, and Ayush, Shri Sarbananda Sonowal, Cordelia Cruises aims to elevate India’s standing on the global cruising stage. Minister Sonowal’s strategic roadmap for cruise tourism has spurred monumental growth, focusing on infrastructure upgrades, fee rationalisation, and enhanced passenger amenities. Cordelia Cruises takes pride in spearheading this transformative journey, further propelling Tamil Nadu’s advancement with its expansion plans in cruise tourism.

Since 2021, Cordelia Cruises has welcomed 450,000 guests and successfully operated sailings from Mumbai, Kochi, and Goa to Lakshadweep, Chennai to Visakhapatnam, and Chennai to Sri Lanka. This year, the company is poised to introduce Puducherry as a new domestic destination from Chennai, in response to the burgeoning demand for this route. Cordelia Cruises remains steadfast in delivering unforgettable experiences to its guests, showcasing the breathtaking coastal beauty of Tamil Nadu and beyond.

Jurgen Bailom, President and CEO of Waterways Leisure Tourism Pvt Ltd, Cordelia Cruises, expressed enthusiasm for the significant strides and strategic vision unveiled by Prime Minister Modi for Tamil Nadu’s development. Bailom extended heartfelt appreciation to the Central Government and Ministry of Ports, Shipping & Waterways for their proactive endeavours in advancing cruise tourism in India. Cordelia Cruises is dedicated to realising Prime Minister Modi’s Vision 2047 for waterways and cruise tourism, aiming to position India as a premier cruise destination by 2047. Bailom emphasised the company’s commitment to providing exceptional value to passengers, creating job opportunities, and promoting sustainable tourism practices.

The launch of the inaugural international cruise to Sri Lanka from Chennai last year, along with the addition of domestic cruises this year, heralds a new era for the industry, showcasing Tamil Nadu’s potential as a burgeoning cruise destination. Cordelia Cruises is confident that its initiatives will not only bolster tourism but also generate significant economic opportunities for the region.
