Chairman Speaks

Dear Visitor, 

It gives me immense pleasure to interact with you through the Sunderban cruises website of Vivada. I thank you for visiting our website. This gives me a good opportunity for spreading the message of a fantastic inland water cruise in the comforts of a state of the art luxury cruiser to a World Heritage Site, the Sunderbans, with its unique form of diverse flora and fauna in a fascinating eco-system. This is a pioneering effort in India to give tourists a touch of thrill and adventure, coupled with the serenity of the Biosphere Reserve as a fantastic vacation product and as also a Corporate Conferencing destination. We have something for everybody.

Those of you who have sailed with us in our cruises know and those of you who will cruise with us to the Sunderbans will 

experience our traditional Indian hospitality as we pamper our guests with our impeccable service.

Please visit this treasure trove, the Sunderbans, with its numerous emerald green islands dotting the azure blue of the rivers. Here you will experience tranquility and nature’s bounty. You can also observe through your binoculars, millions of small crabs climbing the trees with the advent of high tide. This is the land of the tidal mangroves where the roots of trees go upwards and tigers are known to even eat fish.

As you come back to the ship after a visit to the beautiful eco-tourism spots, you are handed a cold towel, a cool glass of relishing sorbet to relax in the comfort of the cruiser.

We offer you on board delicacies from a wide range of Western, Indian, Chinese and Oriental cuisine. You can spend your leisure doing Yoga, getting a massage, working out at the Gym, enjoying in the Game Parlour room or relaxing in the Sauna. You can also spend time browsing local arts and crafts and Indian wildlife films in our Gift shop.

The Entertainment programme on board is a splendid combination of art and culture, fun and frolic. You could also star gaze from our sundeck in the evening through the telescope or sight wildlife in the moonlit night through our night vision binoculars.

The ship, with its conferencing facilities. provides the ideal backdrop for successful Corporate programmes. You may decide to reward your clients with the sumptuous amenities, traditional service and splendid sylvan experience of a Vivada cruise into the Sunderbans.

I welcome you to prepare for the experience of a lifetime as you sign up for the memorable cruise through the wilderness of one of the most unique eco-systems in the world.
