About the ports

Mumbai (Bombay)

The Hollywood of India, Mumbai (previously known as Bombay) is a unique city pulsating with energy, life, and excitement. You can find everything from vibrant street scenes and the country's best nightlife, to an abundance of shopping. The city serves as both the financial and entertainment capital of India, so you are just as likely to see a famous "Bollywood" movie star, as you are a high-powered businessperson. With everything there is to see and do - you will discover that Mumbai truly lives up to its billing as the "City of Dreams."


How can you resist a place whose local motto is "Sossegade," which translates to "Take it Easy"? Long a favorite destination for New Age travelers seeking the transcendent good life, these days Goa is more hip than hippie. High-end restaurants and shopping now complement the dreamy beach life, and Goa's easygoing streets make an easy and rewarding first introduction to India. Goa's historical atmosphere, shaped by a fascinating mix of Portuguese and Indian influences, is unique. The Portuguese were here for some 500 years, and you can still feel their presence in customs like the siesta the easygoing Goans take every afternoon.

New Mangalore

New Mangalore is traditionally an important trading port with ties with the Persian Gulf states dating back to the 14th century. With its strategic location, a number of dynasties and colonial rulers, namely the Portuguese in the mid-16th century, occupied it. Mangalore is one of the fastest developing cities in India with a blend of new and old – the old featuring numerous temples highlighting the local culture.


One of the finest natural harbors on the Arabian coast of India, Cochin was once known as the center of the Indian spice trade. Subsequently, the town has a distinct European feel, because the Portuguese, Dutch, and English once inhabited it. Their influence on the town's forts, palaces, museums, and old churches is still evident today, which is why Kochi is known as the "Queen of the Arabian Sea."


As one of the Middle East's oldest cities - dating back to the 2nd century AD, it is hard to believe that Muscat has been open to tourists for only a few decades. However, seeing is believing! From the beautifully manicured parks and long, unspoiled stretches of beach to the stone moat that still surrounds the area, it is clear that Oman's monarchy has worked hard to protect the rich history and small, safe neighborhood feel of its capital city.


Believe everything you have heard about Dubai - it truly is that incredible. As one of the world's fastest growing cities, Dubai has emerged as a premier luxury travel destination, drawing visitors from all over the globe. Its dry and sunny weather, incredible shopping experiences, and unique tourist attractions have helped to turn it into a bona fide hot spot where ancient and modern cultures come together.
