From the glamorous resorts and restaurants of the east coast to the wilder terrains of the south, its natural beauty and tropical climate are perfect for winter cruising.

A journey through these cruising grounds opens a gateway some of the greatest architectural sights in the world including the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal whilst the unique landscape of the Thar desert forms a whole new dimension. From enthralling wildlife safaris and pine-scented forests to enigmatic palaces, there is an extraordinary spectrum of encounters to experience.
