Ahmedabad: The viral video of a cruise ship on the Sabarmati River Front will surely please you! The ‘Akshar River Cruise' at Sabarmati Riverfront in Ahmedabad, developed by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) and Sabarmati Riverfront Development Corporation Limited, is the country's first passenger catamaran with two engines built under the Make in India initiative for Rs 15 crore.
Sharing a video of the cruise, a user Binit on X wrote, "Ahmedabad Sabarmati Riverfront project is one of the best executed public infra across India I believe. Also that’s a restaurant in cruise btw."

Considered to be a brainchild of Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he was the Gujarat Chief Minister, the cruise ship enjoys a seating capacity of 162 passengers.
The cruise, which boasts of a floating restaurant, also takes passengers on a one-and-a-half-hour journey with a meal. On the cruise, guests can enjoy meals, live shows, and music for Rs 2,000.
Inaugurated by Home Minister Amit Shah in June last year, the cruise is equipped with a sprinkler facility against fire, a lifeboat, and life jackets, among other safety facilities. Shah, during its virtual inauguration, had shared that when he shifted to Ahmedabad in 1978, he never went to see the Sabarmati River until the riverfront was constructed.
