Best way across to Havelock.. good clean catamaran, excellent services, well organised. Book in advance to plan your trip in havelock or Neil islands,to avoid disappointments. Also book your stay in havelock inn advance ad that is the rate limiting step for your itenary

I experience Makruzz cruise last month while travelling from Port Blair-Havelock-Neil Island-Port Blair. It was a comfortable journey. The Interiors were good and Safety briefing was proper. Snacks on sale were of good quality.

Comfortable journey. Someone else made this choice for me and i am very happy with their service. Food was average though. They even gave us a blanket on request, didn't really expect they would have it.

A nice and clean boat that made the 1.5 hour journey in each direction (Port Blai-Havelock-Port Blair) very pleasant. The staff is friendly, helpful and courteous. I only wish that they had better luggage handling arrangement.
