Theme nights
Taste of India
Every Sunday, embark on a gastronomical journey to the four corners of India and savour a mélange of tantalising Indian fare. Indulge in imperial Mughlai cuisine from the royal palaces of northern India. Delight in the spices of Chettinad and Malabar cuisine from the southern regions, or enjoy eastern frontier fare from the mountain and beach regions of eastern India. The buffet also includes vegetarian dishes characteristic of Saurashtra cuisine from the state of Gujerat in western India.

Excursion

Guests can select from two routes for the seven-day cruise: the Northern Passage or the Southern Cross. Each includes numerous sites, pre-selected for their unique diving or on-shore recreation potential.

Along the journey, guests can select to participate in dives in seldom-seen regions; snorkel or play in turquoise waters teeming with neon-coloured sealife; enjoy amazing lunch breaks or dinner celebrations on private, white-sand beaches; relax like Robinson Crusoe in the shade of a coconut palm; or indulge in an on-board massage ñ daily, if desired.
