Until recently the only other modes of transport available for travelling to Mumbai from Goa would be airways, railways and roadways. However if one were to ask the people from our yesteryears, they would recall the presence of a cruise ship operating along the iconic Mumbai Goa route.

Well after nearly a decade, Angriya Sea Eagle Navigation has ventured into cruise ship business by introducing a swanky new cruise ship on the Mumbai-Goa route. The new ship was the most talked about mode of transport with a lot of buzz going around about the service going on air.
But on the 22nd of October was just another day until Angriya India’s largest cruise ship made a call to Mormugao Port Trust at Vasco for berthing permissions bringing in 226 passengers. The ship was flagged off by Mr Nithin Gadkari minister for road transport, highways and river development among other dignitaries at Mumbai cruise terminal after which it made its maiden journey to Goa.

Having tasted successful trial runs, the luxury cruise liner has also completed its first maiden run with any hassle thus beginning its service with four trips in a week.
Angriya is a 131 metre long vessel that can accommodate 399 passengers and 67 crew including hospitality and marine crew. The ship has an infinity swimming pool at the rear of the deck, a disco club, 2 restaurants, six bars, a gym and an underwater spa. Passengers travelling on the ship will be able to choose from 104 rooms divided into eight different categories that includes luxury and deluxe suites and even underwater luxury rooms.
