Scotia Prince Emerges in India and SriLanka

Did folks ever wonder what happened to the Scotia Prince Ferry?

While surfing the net today I found this article on indiainfoline.com.

Indian’s can now experience world class cruising as “Flemingo Liners” is all set to sail from the Indian shores to Colombo on 13th June 2011. India’s first international passenger ferry service will sail from Tuticorin to Colombo twice in a week initially and will take 14 hours to reach the destination. Flemingo Liners chartered Scotia Prince ship to run this ferry service between both the countries. This ship has already sailed between Portland and Yarmouth in 2004.

A consortium of Flemingo Duty Free Shop Pvt Ltd and Tradex Shipping Co Pvt Ltd, obtained the license for operating the ferry service between India and Colombo for seven + three years. The 9 deck spacious ship houses 317 well designed cabins that can accommodate 1044 passengers and has world class facilities on board equaling cruise liners. Some of the features on board include: Broadway Lounge, Concorde restaurant and Manhattan cafĂ©, Bar’s, A Disco and a very well equipped infirmary. The soon to be launched features include casino, drive in drive out facility for cars and cargo vehicles and a duty free shop inside the ship.
