The Indian Ocean cruise follows the Spice Route for exotic destinations. We cross the Suez Canal with the excitement of a new destination, to find out that the shades of blue of the sea are truly endless. When you dream about the sea, you imagine huge sailing ships anchored in front of immaculate beaches, with palm trees that touch the crystalline waters. There are stops where everything is so calm and encourages tranquility, because of the wonderful vacation that you will experience on our Indian Ocean cruise, will leave no room for anything other than pleasure and relaxation. Mauritius, Seychelles, Reunion and The Maldives give us all this and the chance to dive in the shallows of the reef. We can see the heavenly nature of Madagascar, or become inebriated with the sweet scents of cinnamon, vanilla and cocoa from Nosy Be. And then there is India with its mystical essence.
Bombay is India, contradictions and chaos, sublime beauty and poverty, gold and dust. Nothing in the world has the same charm as Bombay.
The cultures of the Portuguese and the Dutch have mixed so well with the inhabitants of Cochin that it is now a cosmopolitan city.
From the port of Malé, where we dock our Costa cruise, it's off to the various dreamy atolls that make up the Maldives, where both the sea and the reef are magnificent.
The friendliness and hospitality of the Mauritians add a touch of folklore to the beauty of the Mascarene Islands, which comes from its magnificent beaches and preponderant nature.
Madagascar retains an aspect of wilderness where animals and plants live in protection. Everything is wonderful here, both at sea and on land.
