With Boudicca as your guide, experience India at its most inspirational, authentic and iconic, uncovering contrasting traditional treasures and modern marvels, fascinating spiritual sites and areas of breathtaking natural beauty that present an unforgettable snapshot of this remarkable country.

Kochi, on Kerala State’s picturesque coast, makes for an intoxicating introduction to India; you’ve a day to see the famous Chinese cantilever fishing nets, visit the British Commonwealth’s oldest synagogue, taste the spicy flavours of traditional local cuisine, and much more. On to Goa, a visit to Mormugão is a treat to savour. It’s your gateway to Old Goa and the UNESCO-listed Latin Quarter, which, with their fine examples of Portuguese colonial architecture, beautiful churches and charming old houses, highlight India’s European heritage. Postcard-perfect beaches can be found just a short distance from your ship’s docking location too, while there are opportunities to tour to local spice plantations to learn about the creation of ingredients synonymous with Indian food and culture.

Magnificent Mumbai offers an enthralling mix of old and modern India. From admiring the British-style buildings of the historic Colaba quarter and the UNESCO-listed Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Railway Station, to visiting the world’s largest open-air laundry district and watching – or even working with – busy Dabbawallas delivering lunches across the city, a plethora of diverse experiences and sights await you here. Stopping overnight in Mumbai affords you time to fully immerse yourself in all the legendary hustle and bustle of the city too. Finally, your time in India will come to an end at Porbandar. As the birthplace of Gandhi – the ‘Father of India’ – this coastal city is the perfect place conclude your epic Indian exploration. Be sure to visit Kirti Mandir – Gandhi’s childhood home – and the Sudama Temple, a Hindu pilgrimage site dedicated to the devotee of Lord Krishna, to capture the spiritual importance of Porbandar.
