If time is not a constraint for you, and you wish to travel lavishly, you can opt to travel to Andaman by ship. Not only is the experience something off the beaten tracks, but also a more convenient way to enjoy the marine beauty of the endless sea.

There are nearly four to five ships that ply every month from Chennai, Kolkata and Vizag. But bear in mind that the journey is 50 to 60 hours long. Although the voyage is quite time consuming, it gives you more time to take in the expansive beauty that surrounds you. If you’re travelling from Chennai, there are two ships - MV Nancowry and MV Swarajdeep.

If you’re travelling from Chennai, there are two ships - MV Nicobar and MV Akbar. MV Harshavardhana is a ship that operates from both, Chennai as well as Kolkata. You can also opt to board a ship from Vishakhapatnam, from where ships ply to Andaman once every month. If you love the sea, then there’s no better experience for you than the beautiful voyage to Andaman.

I had planned this tour for my cousin. I was in touch with Shubham and Atri from booking time.Both were kind and helpful for answering and sharing the details to my queries.Later on Atri was in touch with me and he helped in customizing this tour for couple. He has clarified all my doubts, concerns during planning, booking for this tour. We opted for deluxe category and we shared our preferred list of hotels.Atri also helped in decision making for the hotels. Hotels were good and couple had nice time... Cabs were on time, food was good... Flower bed decoration was too good and also candle light dinner.. but was expecting more for candle light dinner apart from just table decoration ... Overall it was nice experience...

A complete package to cover the best parts of such a beautiful island at a reasonable price. Ours was a honeymoon trip and both of us had a great time. The guide with us was really helpful and we did not have to face any problems during the whole trip. There are good hotels also at all places where you can have good food from. The stay arranged by them was also good.
It was an amazing trip with my partner. We spend 3 days in cruise and we had so much fun and other 4 days in Andaman, visiting various islands and enjoying all the watersports. THANKS Thrillophilia for the wonderful trip
Our trip was hassle free, everything was managed by our tour manager. From the first day visit to the Cellular jail to the last day transfer to Port Blair from Neil islands, we had seen so much and done so many water activities. Every day we were on a new island, doing new things. Best tour of our life!
It was a very well-coordinated tour. Everything was perfectly arranged on time. Food, pickup up , stay, activities all were good.
It was an amazing experience, the team has coordinated well. people were so polite and gentle. they want to do everything to get you the best experience.
What a trip! Me and my partner like to thank Thrillophilia for this amazing experience we had during our honeymoon. I mean, from the moment we stepped in and met the coordinators to the time we left, everything about the trip was perfect and top notch.
