With the coronavirus situation improving after the unprecedented second wave, Cordelia Cruises are all set to resume sailing operations from September 2021. While their maiden cruise was cancelled by the deadly second wave, the team is upbeat and cautiously optimistic that they can travel freely again.
“The second wave led to the cancellation of our initial sailing plans, but we were equipped to handle such emergencies. Our team is in touch with guests who have booked with us, and we are regularly checking on the status of their health and vaccination. Safety is the most crucial word in travel today,” says Jurgen Bailom, CEO & President for Waterways Leisure Tourism Private Limited, who also added that the response from the guests to the new itineraries has been overwhelming and extremely encouraging.
Given that safety is paramount and a non-negotiable factor, especially in today’s times, Cordelia has implemented all the standard protocols for its crew members, guests on board, and at the ports. Cordelia has also partnered with the Apollo Group for its food and drink offerings. With immense variety, the food aboard Cordelia includes a plethora of cuisines and flavours catering to wide-ranging palates and tastes.
The first sail is planned from Dubai to Mumbai via Oman on September 2, 2021. Cruises are open to Goa, Lakshadweep, Diu, Kochi, and Sri Lanka and bookings for 2021-22 sailings are now open.
