What can we say about the Maldives? Simply, it is probably the most luxurious and romantic of all cruise holiday destinations. Close your eyes and picture thatched beach huts, impossibly blue waters, white sand and the tingle of the sun on your skin. These low-lying coral islands in the Indian Ocean are a paradise to divers, snorkelers and sun-worshipers. [ReadMoreMob]
If you’re looking for high adventure and vibrant city life, the Maldives won’t be for you. But if you prefer your cruise to offer simplicity, luxury and complete relaxation then you’re in luck.
Just imagine yourself relaxing, looking out over the azure waters as you enjoy the freshest fish you’ve ever eaten. As you can imagine, this features quite heavily on the menu, as does fruit and curry.
So if you’re looking for an indulgent break with a spot of sun worshipping, bathing in bath warm lagoons and relaxing on picture-perfect white-sand beaches, a cruise holiday to the Maldives has got to be at the top of your list.
Islands of the Maldives
The Maldives consists of over a thousand islets, only 200 of which are inhabited. Within easy reach of Malé are the tropical paradise resorts of Kuda Bandos and Cinnamon Dhonveli, while neighbouring Vilimale showcases traditional Maldivian life.
Located in the Islamic Centre, the Grand Friday Mosque is striking for its plainness; its pristine white marble façade is almost devoid of ornament. Nevertheless, it is crowned by an impressive golden dome that dominates Malé’s busy skyline.
