Aqaba (Petra)

In 08:00
Out 18:00

This ancient port city bustles with trade traffic and an undeniable energy, connecting Jordan with other parts of the world. Aqaba is home to many resorts and beachy activities like windsurfing and snorkeling. Scuba divers will call Aqaba their paradise, where the warmth of the water and crystal visibility make for incredible Red Sea wreck diving.

While stopped in Aqaba on an India cruise, you’ll find historic and cultural activities around every corner. Take a trip beyond Aqaba to the ancient ruins of Petra, an archaeological icon of pink stone that has long been Jordan’s most famous site. Don’t miss Wadi Rum, a famously protected desert where dunes, mountains, and wilderness collide. Stand in awe of the site where Lawrence of Arabia was said to have passed through in the early 20th century. Beyond the natural wonders of this part of Jordan, you’ll find a truly warm-natured city where tradition collides with modern life on your Aqaba cruise.

While we don’t currently sail to Aqaba, you can discover the beauty of Europe on one of our cruises to the Mediterranean. Browse our luxury cruises to the Mediterranean below.

Abu Dhabi

In 08:00
Out 18:00

The city of Abu Dhabi is the ideal start to an India cruise. Though deeply rooted in traditions and history, Abu Dhabi has quickly turned into a thriving capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a shining gem of the Arabian Gulf. Before you cruise from Abu Dhabi, you’ll be able to quickly get a feel for this dynamic city.

On an Abu Dhabi cruise, you’ll take in ornate sights like the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the biggest mosques in the world. Marvel at its 82 pearly white domes and the stunning gold interwoven throughout the interior and exterior. Take a tour of the extravagant Louvre Abu Dhabi, then check out the Observation Deck at 300, where you can sip afternoon tea and enjoy 360-degree views of the entire skyline. Thrill seekers will love Abu Dhabi for adrenaline-rush attractions like the Formula Rossa roller coaster at Ferrari World, or the unforgettable water slides at Yas Island. When you’re craving nature, there’s always kayaking among the wildlife at Mangrove National Park or snorkeling at Corniche Beach.

Abu Dhabi is a cornerstone of the UAE, balancing a careful line of modern opulence and traditionalism, constantly at work to honor its past while forging a path as a futuristic hub for commerce and tourism. You’ll quickly discover there’s something for every type of traveler on an Abu Dhabi cruise.

Dubai

The lure of Dubai is irresistible, from its glittering mega-skyscrapers to its traditional Islamic roots. This enigmatic destination is recognized worldwide as a city pointed full throttle toward the future. Dubai is a must-experience city while on an India cruise. Dubai’s most iconic sights include the 160-story Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper, and the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, a luxury resort which happens to be shaped like a boat’s sail.

Dubai is unlike any other place in the world, filled with luxe shopping and high-end boutiques, unique souqs (markets) scattered all over the city, and cultural institutions like the Dubai Museum. While you’re stopped on a Dubai cruise, you’re meant to live it up on unforgettable excursions like a helicopter tour of the city or a camel ride at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Not even differences in climate can stop Dubai from bringing you every experience you crave. There’s even an indoor skiing experience and the massive Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.

Mumbai

In
Out

India’s largest city, known as Bombay until very recently, possesses an energy and gusto that few cities can imitate. On your India cruise, a stop in Mumbai quickly shows visitors both thousands of years of history and a modern, bustling hub for film and industry. Don’t miss a stroll or a car ride along the Queen’s Necklace, or Mumbai’s Marine Drive, where you’ll be engulfed by the Arabian Sea and the Mumbai skyline.

Thousands of years of history is preserved at sites like the Elephanta Caves and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, formerly known as the Prince of Wales Museum. During your time in Mumbai, shop along the chaotic Colaba Causeway. Sip a gin cocktail in one of the city’s many speakeasy lounges. Tour the ornate Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, where celebrities gather and tragedies strike. Spend the day on a Bollywood set, marveling at India’s biggest stars, or among lush plant life at the Hanging Gardens, a rest from the lights and noise. After all, Mumbai is a city full of contradictions like that.

Cochin

Whether you refer to it as Kochi or Cochin, this port city offers a picturesque, seaside stop on an India cruise unlike any other. With influences from British, Dutch, and Portuguese settlement over the past 500 or so years, Kochi feels especially global, whether you’re stopping for coffee at the local Kashi Art Cafe or touring Fort Kochi on your own.

See the famous Chinese fishing nets, one of the most photographable spots in Kochi, and peruse the catches of the day with the local fishermen. Or, take an excursion beyond Kochi to Alappuzha during your Cochin cruise, indulging in thali and kebabs after a day’s boat ride on the Arabian Sea. Luckily, Kochi itself is pretty walkable, and most sights are close to one another. Less bustling than Mumbai, Cochin retains a small town charm ideal for unhurried exploration.

Singapore

At first glance, this diamond-shaped island just off the coast of Malaysia gleams with modernism and commercialism, making it seem more Western than Eastern. But as you continue to discover the city-state, you’ll uncover the eclectic mix of cultures, religions, ancient treasures and British colonial impressions that give rise to a unique Singaporean identity. The cultural fusion is perhaps best expressed in Singapore’s unofficial language, Singlish, a unique patois of English, Chinese and Malay.
