“Experience the Epic World’s Longest Cruise for 20 Lakhs!”
Narendra Modi announced the decision to inaugurate MV Ganga Vilas in Varanasi, western Uttar Pradesh, via video conferencing. Thirty-two Swiss travelers will fly onto the next leg of the voyage at Dibrugarh in southwest Assam via Bangladesh.
He arranged a visit to Astoria, organized on the lines of “Tent Cities” in other parts of Gujarat and Rajasthan in the American colonies. On the banks of the Ganges in Varanasi, he kicked off a “Tent City” founded on similar patterns.
In over 200 tents, tourists will see the famous Ghats of the sacred city on the other side of the Ganges river accompanied by live classical music, ‘aarti’ in the evening, and yoga sessions. He also laid the foundation for various projects worth over 1,000 crores.
As several destinations in India now appear on the world map, this ship’s travel to eastern India will strategically improve the country’s tourism market. What happened after the culture of the Ganges improved but the banks of the river did not develop is deeply unfortunate.
MV Ganga Viras is the first cruise vessel to be built in India. The vessel will traverse 3,200 kilometers in 51 days, and 32 Swiss tourists, who will take its maiden voyage, received welcome garlands and a taste of their country at the Varanasi port. They will visit numerous religious and historical places in Varanasi as they get ready for the cruise.
Raj Singh, the Director of the cruise, said on behalf of PTI that the five-star moving hotel with 18 suites has 36 rooms that can accommodate 40 crew members. In addition to that, the hotel has accommodations for 40 crew members. The Modernist Yacht is 62 meters long and 12 meters wide, with a thickness of 1.4 meters.
The cruise will take 72 tourists from one place to another across the 27 major rivers of Uttar Pradesh. According to a statement from Uttar Pradesh Tourism Minister Jaiveer Singh released in Lucknow, the cruise will pass through 27 sites rarely seen by the public.
The cruise will include destinations such as heritage sites, cultural heritage sites, historic towns, river ports, and popular cities, such as Patna in Bihar, Shahiganj in Jharkhand, Kolkata in West Bengal, Dhaka in Bangladesh, and Guwahati in Assam.
Raj Singh indicated that a cruise has been fitted out with features conducive to leisure. The option of spending time in Sanya will cost between 25,000 and 50,000 per day, while the cruise itself will be approximately 51 days long.
There is a Sanitation Plant on this cruise where no wastewater flows into the Ganges, as well as a water purification plant that purifies the Ganges water for baths and other purposes, the Cruise Director said.
Travelers will have the opportunity to embark upon an immersive journey and immerse themselves in the arts, culture, history, and spirituality of India and Bangladesh on an extended voyage through India.
Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav has criticized the initiative. In a tweet in Hindi with a photograph of the cruise, Mr. Yadav said, “Now will the BJP take away the jobs of the sailors, too? BJP’s policy of earning money by converting religious sites into tourist destinations is condemnable.
The spiritual beauty of Kashi draws people from all over the world to experience an opportunity that’s rather unconventional. BJP now cannot address the darkness which is caused by problems with misleading pronouncements.
India has everything you can imagine. It has a lot beyond what you can imagine. India cannot be defined in words. It can only be experienced from the heart, according to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his New Year message.
