BERNHARD SCHULTE PROVIDES TECHNICAL MANAGEMENT FOR INDIA’S FIRST CRUISE OPERATION

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 

Bernhard Schulte Cruise Services (BSCS) has been awarded technical management of Jalesh Cruises’ new vessel, 'MS Karnika' (formerly Pacific Jewel).

The 70,285-ton, 2,000-passenger Crown Princess-class cruise ship is presently undergoing comprehensive refurbishment at Sembcorp Marine Admiralty Yard in Singapore prior to entering service from Mumbai, India in mid-April 2019. MS Karnika will operate cruises from India and Dubai for the duration of 2019.

BSCS MD Les Royle and Deputy MD Martin Springer worked closely with Jalesh Cruises on the new partnership. “We are very proud and excited to welcome this fine vessel into BSCS’ management, and being part of the first dedicated, domestic cruise operation on the Indian sub-continent and the Middle East.”

Jalesh Cruises is promoted by Amit Goenka of Essel Group, a multi-billion-dollar Indian conglomerate company with interests in media, entertainment and tourism, and has recently received a US$10 million investment from a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delta Corp Limited, India’s largest casino gaming company.

The Indian cruise business has been conceptualised by experienced cruise veteran Jurgen Bailom, who has spent the past twelve months developing the onboard cruise product that includes unique entertainment formats, itineraries and shore excursion programmes.
