Initially when you thought about a cruise it was all about the luxury, the comfort and the entertainment on the ship. But now we take that for granted. It is a given that the ship will have the standard luxury features and services. Now the important thing is the itinerary and how exciting it promises to be. When you hear about the extremes of Mumbai, the possibility of pirates near Somalia, threatened islands in the Indian Ocean and safaris in Africa, all in one cruise, does it sound exciting?
Regent Seven Seas Cruises is offering just that. You fly into Mumbai (formerly Bombay) and drive in the Hotel limo to the Four Seasons Hotel. Mumbai is a city of 15 to 20 million people who might surprise you with their gentle nature and positive energy. You board the ship the next day from The Gateway of India.
Seven Seas Voyager is the world’s second all-suite, all-balcony cruise ship that accommodates 700 passengers. Its staterooms are large and well equipped and the service is of a very high standard. Our first stop is Kochi for a look at the rural South India. We sail on to the east coast of Africa after stops in Maldives and Seychelles and then head to our final destination of South Africa.
