Cruise in India


Some of the recommendations are related to berthing space for the cruise liners, infrastructure at the ports, and tax concessions to cruise liners. According to the cruise industry outlook for 2018, 27.2 million tourists are expected to set sail, 1.4 million more than last year. Currently, port trusts in three cities — Mumbai, Chennai and Kochi — have been allotted funds to develop berthing facilities for cruise liners.


India has a huge coastline but suffers from a lack of facilities. Once the ports get facilities similar airports and other travel ports, the cruise tourism will surely take off. Once this segment gets moving, it is expected to see a growth of 50 per cent year-on-year.

India: A Cruising Source Market

The global cruise industry is growing rapidly. It grew from 10 million in the year 2000 to more than 25 million in 2017. And with 94 ships on order today, the number of cruise passengers is projected to reach 40 million by 2025. With India’s overall outbound travel growing at a robust pace year-on-year and being estimated to be a 50 million outbound travel market by 2020, cruise industry is keen to develop this largely untapped and hitherto a very small cruise source market.
