We traveled from Neil to Portblair in Makruzz. Lot of hype is created about this ferry but in reality there is nothing great about it .
We traveled in 3rd week of March and it was late by an hour , also being a big boat getting in , out and collecting the luggage will take lot of time .
Worst part is there was a cockroach in one of our seats and my family fell sick after having a puff from the shop there .
Green ocean is way better then this in terms of price , cleanliness and interiors& seating .

This must be one of the best ways to reach Havelock comfortably and in a short time. Clean and comfortable seats , good food available onboard. Helpful staff. Online hasselfree booking makes travel easy.

Staff is too polite to control the overexcited tourists who keep moving around constantly much to the dislike of the ones who want to rest or sleep.

The handing over of luggage to the alighting passengers needs to be made more systematic.....Else everything is good.

I took Makruzz to travel to and fro between Havelock island and port blair and both times, the ferry left right on time and reach well before time. The interiors are very comfortable and the boat doesn't roll or pitch a lot.
The online seat selection was disappointing though. It showed seats are blocked even though they were available when we actually travelled.

Out of the two ferry companies, Makruzz is more like being in a huge aeroplane than being in a ship, there is no experience of being at sea at all. You are stuck in your seat throughout the journey and cannot walk around or go out on deck to enjoy the panorama of the sea. There are windows but you cannot see very much out of them as they are shaded and spattered with salt and if you are sitting in the central section you cannot see anything at all. In short it is a boring way to travel, just a way of getting from place to place without any enjoyment, unless you are totally uninterested in your surroundings and are happy just sitting and watching Bollywood song and dance sequences on the TV. I only went on it because the Green Ocean sailing was cancelled. The saving grace is that the journey is quick.
