India has a new cruise line called Jalesh Cruises. They will start sailings in April of 2019 with the Karnika (ex-Crown Princess, A’Rosa Blu, AIDAblu, Ocean Village Two, Pacific Jewel). The vessel will operate on behalf of Zen Tourism and Cruises. She’ll be delivered in March and go into about a month long drydock to change it over for Indian clientele.
