14 Night cruise sailing roundtrip from Mumbai onboard Costa Victoria.
Costa Victoria is the stunning result of Italian and Swedish design.
A ship of extraordinary beauty is now ready to amaze you with a whole new look and makeover with meticulous attention to detail.
Highlights of this cruise:
Bombay is India, contradictions and chaos, sublime beauty and poverty, gold and dust. Nothing in the world has the same charm as Bombay.
Bombay, or Mumbai, is India's second largest city, built on a peninsula jutting out into the Arabian Sea. The economy is well developed due to the presence of head offices of large Indian companies and the maritime harbor, where the imports arrive. The stop in Bombay offers many surprises: absolutely unmissable are visits to the Elephant Caves and the Bandra Worli Sea Link viaduct. We also recommend a visit to the hanging gardens and a walk to Kamla Nehru Park. It will be an unforgettable experience.
India is a spectacular country where everything takes on a deeper meaning. During our stop at New Mangalore we visit many temples and shrines.
The New Mangalore port is located on the southern coast of India. It is the ninth largest port in the country in terms of traffic. Surrounded by palm trees of all kinds, by undulating and verdant Sahyadri mountains and beautiful rivers flowing into the Arabian Sea, the port offers travellers the sense of escapism they’re seeking. Enjoy a stop at New Mangalore to visit the incredible Jain Temple or to discover Udupi and its temple of Lord Krishna. You can take a walk around Mangalore to admire its picturesque houses.
The cultures of the Portuguese and the Dutch have mixed so well with the inhabitants of Cochin that it is now a cosmopolitan city.
Cochin is the most important port on the Malabar coast, in South-Western India, and the most populous city in Kerala. It’s divided into three areas: Fort Cochin, is the oldest part on the Mattancherry peninsula, Ernakulam is the modern part of the city, and Willingdon, an artificial island built in 1920 with dredged material. The Cochin stop will be truly memorable: the multicultural past of the region is attested to by the Portuguese and Dutch styles, recognizable just by walking through the streets of Mattancherry and visiting the shrines of various religions: Shiva, the Paradesi Synagogue, the Santa Cruz Basilica and the Church of St Francis.
From the port of Malé, where we dock our Costa cruise, it's off to the various dreamy atolls that make up the Maldives, where both the sea and the reef are magnificent.
The port of Malé, the capital of the Maldives located within the Kaafu atoll, immediately plunges visitors into the culture of the archipelago. Here, in a heavenly setting, modern buildings coexist in perfect harmony with the traditional homes. During the stopover in Malé, diving enthusiasts will discover the wonderful places on the sides of the Vaadhoo Kandu, where they will explore the sea aboard a submarine. Surfers can take advantage of the wonderful sea of Gaafaru Falhu. Hikers can visit the fish market, enjoy the calm and coolness of the Sultan’s lush garden, or bask on the white sandy beaches.
Colombo is a stop on our Costa Cruise to Sri Lanka, which allows us to visit beautiful and interesting places and to learn more about the Buddhist religion.
Economic capital and former state capital of Sri Lanka, Colombo is a port city located in southwest of the island. To the north and north west, the city is bordered by the Kelani River, which flows into the Indian Ocean. The port of Colombo is the largest in the country and it is from here that most exports leave. The stop in Colombo will allow you to visit many monuments that are historical, cultural and representative of the various religions, such as the Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple or the Temple of Sri Kailawasanathan Swami Devasthanam Kovil. In Columbo, visitors can truly learn about the “Teardrop of India”. It’s a mythical and lively place with overcrowded streets.
Our Costa Cruise to India makes a stop at the port of Mormugao, linked to the memory of the 1970s, when hippies regarded this region as the place to be.
The Mormugao Harbour, one of the oldest in the region of Goa, is the main port for the country’s mineral exports, which makes it extremely important for the economy of the area. Mormugao was once renowned for the hippy communities that resided there. Our stop will allow you to enjoy the fine sandy beaches and clear water that make for an unmissable tourist attraction. You can relax under the bright sunshine of this heavenly place.
