Hi everyone, me and a few buddies (5-6) are planning to visit Goa on Oct 1, 2011. We are from north India(Delhi region) and Goa is a first for all of us.

We have heard about cruises from Mumbai to Goa and want to enjoy it. but information is hard to find online and seems like most cruises are night time.

We want to find a economical day time cruise so that we are able to enjoy it. All of us are new to cruises.

Any advise about fairs, timing, companies, websites, advance booking etc?

Thanks you.

You are having trouble finding info because no such thing exists, day or night.

A while back there was an attempt to start this but the ancient rotting hulk used sprang a major leak on its first trip and has not been heard of since......

I've heard that it existed once, when the railways were not built.
Now it has fallen in ruins!

There are plans to start it again, and the govt of Mah has come up with building and renovating ports, it's on paper.
May be it's goin to take 10 more yrs! this is India you see!

River cruises dont look so great on first glance.... it is just like a boat ride and no on-board restaurant or bars like I imagined cruises to be.

that looks promising but timings and price are unclear. The info looks outdated. do you have any ideas what they are saying for 1 day cruise on the 1st Oct '11?

I guess I need to call them up.

(Thanks for the super fast response)

Unless I'm much mistaken, Blue Ocean were the lot with the leaking rust-bucket?

No, just Googled it......same lot, same knackered old ship. Loads of stuff on the net but all well out of date as the whole venture went t*ts up. As far as I can tell?)

India first cruise line was their ad-line...........

some years ago on our first visit to goa we travelled to mumbai on the hydrofoil which used to travel about a mile off shore along the coast it was very basic and i have not heard of it running since by the way i think it was called the Damanias

Not exactly budget, and unlikely to actually happen, but.........

I have very fond and romantic memories of the catamaran chugging and chuddering its way down the coast from Mumbai to Goa.As you leave Mumbai the sweet smell of success, oil and raw sewage,assails your nostrils as you cross The Bay of Bombay and head down the coast towards Ratnagiri.The coast line though is truly amazing to behold.Pristine beaches and old Maratha Forts, small fishing villages and green verdant headlands stick out into the Arabian Sea.Its when you get to Goa and especially Baga that you realise, it would have been better to get of the boat in Ratnagiri because there is no beach now in Baga, just a parking lot for old sun loungers and beach umbrellas.If Britos expands any further outwards on the beach it will soon become a pier.

I think they mentioned 15,000 to 25,000 Rps depending on the size of the cabin you want.It didnt mention if it was return though.I suspect it will be one way.
