MV Scotia Prince

Due to the forthcoming festival season the passenger ticket price of MV Scotia Prince vessel has been reduced by Rs 2,750 per ticket. Accordingly the total return ticket price will be Rs 12,210 and Rs 6,105 one-way.

Ceylon Shipping Corporation Ltd. is the General Sales Agent (GSA) in Sri Lanka for the Ferry Service operated by M/s Flemingo Liners.

The vessel MV Scotia Prince has been deployed to operate this Passenger Ferry Service between Tuticorin and Colombo.

The vessel sails two round trips per week arriving every Wednesday and Saturday and departing every Monday and Wednesday.

The Scotia Prince is a comfortable spacious passenger ferry vessel with facilities on board equalling cruise lines. She can carry up to 1,044 passengers.

There are nine levels around the Scotia Prince which contains both inward and outward facing cabins and other facilities like restaurants, bars and lounge areas for the benefit and convenience of passengers.

The Economy Class passengers will continue to benefit from the free baggage allowance of 100 kgs and passengers travelling in Deluxe and first class categories could carry up to 150 to 200 kgs free.

Ceylon Shipping Corporation Ltd is looking at operating an additional ship when the second phase of the Sri Lankan-India ferry service begins from Rameswaran, its Passenger Services Senior Manager Chithra Jayasinghe said.
