January 2019 Newsletter - I for India

Firstly, here’s wishing you all a very happy, healthy and successful 2019 !! We hope you had a good time over the festive break and are fully recharged and ready to rock n roll … we certainly are and have already lined up a string of events to make 2019 merrier than ever !! This newsletter is a quick synopsis and heads up on our 2019 outline event calendar !!

NEW YEAR’S EVE CRUISE TO HONFLEUR

In a different experience to the last 3 years, we welcomed 2019 on a cruise trip to Honfleur with Brittany Ferries (29 Dec - 1st Jan). The nine-deck cruise had ample space, facilities and entertainment for adults and kids alike. The New Year’s Eve party on-board had a special double celebration counting down the New Year to both European and British time zones. We even managed to get an exclusive Bollywood DJ and Dance slot on the evening’s agenda, which was enjoyed by other passengers also. The I for India patrons in ethnic costume and Bollywood DJ theme surely made a special impact for all on the evening and made it a memorable experience - our thanks to patrons, friends and well-wishers for joining us on this cruise.
