Jalesh Cruises takes delivery of first cruise ship
New India-based cruise brand Jalesh Cruises has taken delivery of its first ship, which formerly sailed as P&O Australia’s Pacific Jewel. The 2,000-passenger vessel will be revitalised, rebranded and customised to suit the tastes of Indian travellers at Sembcorp Marine Admiralty Yard in Singapore over the next few weeks. During the refurbishment, the vessel will be fitted with spas, salons, fitness, fine dining venues and leisure facilities for young passengers and more. Once complete, the ship will depart Singapore for Mumbai in India, where she will be renamed Karnika during a christening ceremony on 19 April.

“Our brand will be a contemporary product for Indian tourists while offering a culturally relevant experience,” said Jurgen Bailom, president and CEO, Zen Tourism and Cruises. Bailom, speaking in an interview with Cruise Industry News, said the company takes delivery of its first ship (the current Pacific Jewel), on March 12, 2019, in Singapore. The company officially announced its cruise line at the end of August. The company, owned by Essel Group, has bigger plans, well beyond one ship. The Essel Group is a major powerhouse in India, with holdings from news and media to technology, packaging, entertainment, precious metals and more. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/19566-zen-cruises-targets-may-2019-start-up-from-mumbai.html
