Travel Tips for India Cruises

History & culture

Home to one of the world’s oldest civilisations, India’s history dates back further than most of the country’s temples, sacred statues and regal palaces. Emperors and dynasties have come and gone. Colonies have left behind architectural highlights and there’s a captivating mix of cultural influences that are still felt today, longer after the Dutch, Portuguese and British settlers have left. India’s modern and bustling cities might not seem the spot to seek out the past, but marble palaces have become hotels, ancient forts have become tourist attractions and traditional dance, customs and music are still in plentiful supply.

Food & drink

If you’re already a fan of aromatic spices, intense marinades and buttery-rich curries, you’ll love the local and authentic versions of firm favourites from your local Indian restaurant. If this is your first real taste of Indian cuisine, don’t worry, there’s a trend for fusion food that sees familiar foods such as tacos getting a tandoor twist. If you want to try a little of everything, order a thali. A platter of small plate curries, rice, pickles and naan that delivers on flavour. To drink? A fruity, yoghurt-based Lassi pairs well with spicy food while a Masala Chai brings an Indian-spice flavour hit to the humble cuppa.

Featured Indian Destinations to visit

Mumbai

It’s hard not to get swept up into the frenzy of activity that plays out on Mumbai’s colourful streets. Eclectic, ornate and authentic throughout, this is a city that demands to be explored. There are places to pause and soak up the sights though. Tucked away, temples provide a haven to take in the centuries of history, while the Marine Drive promenade is a coastal haven, until sunset – when the city flocks to see the orange hues wash over the skyline.

Discover all the tips to make the most of your visit on our Mumbai travel guide!

Goa

Goa’s wellness and wildlife attractions make it a zen-like haven after the rush and bustle of Mumbai’s commercial streets. Golden sand beaches and gorgeous Goan cuisine are plentiful, the flea markets are full of intricate, artisan crafts and the surrounding scenery is spectacular. Be sure to navigate away from the port to find the best stretches of coastline and most intriguing historic sights.

Kochi

The iconic Chinese fishing nets that have become Kochi’s top attraction are the first clue that this Indian port has a distinctly diverse history to explore. The Dutch left their mark on the stunning Mattancherry Palace, the port was built in part by British colonists and Portuguese settlers buried the explorer, Vasco da Gama, in the church built within Fort Kochi. This small seaside town is a charming addition to any Indian cruise itinerary.

What not to miss in India

Colaba Causeway: Mumbai

Known as the heart of Mumbai, the Colaba Causeway is the city’s central shopping street. Upscale boutiques and rustic street stalls sell everything from homewares to jewellery and clothing. While the iconic cafe Cafe Leopold is the place to rest up and plan your next buy. The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel is a 5 minute walk away – and Mumbai’s best museums and galleries are within easy reach too – making this street an ideal base for your day in port. 

Panaji: Goa

Goa is known for its beaches, though it might feel wasteful to spend your whole port day on the sands. If that’s the case, head for Panaji, Goa’s state capital. Just a 45 minute drive north of the Goan cruise port of Mormugao, here you’ll be able to mix galleries, churches and cultural highlights with coastal views.

Alappuzha: Kochi

Swap one ship for another in Kerala’s ‘Venice of the East’. Here, you’ll be hopping aboard a small, thatched house boat known as a kettuvallam to cruise gently past the swaying palms that line the backwater canals. Much more serene than Venice, Alappuzha is the place to see another side of India away from the fast-paced streets of Mumbai.

Tips for cruising to India

Currency considerations

The Rupee is India’s official currency. A mix of fee-free credit cards and cash are best for shopping in India. While there are Banks and ATMs almost everywhere, cash is the preferred option by most stalls, shops and restaurants.

Making the most use of short durations in port

Cruises in India offer glimpses into the country’s vast expanse. It’s impossible to see it all – but you can maximise the sights you fit in by booking tours in the ports on your itinerary. If you’re exploring alone and want to save time, choose a train over a taxi. Upgrading to first class is relatively cheap and avoids a seat in the over-crowded carriages at rush hour.

Transport

From rickshaws to taxis, Ubers, buses and trains, getting around in India is cheap and easy. Though city roads are prone to traffic jams. Always allow extra time for travel when planning your port day itinerary.

Religious buildings have a few rules to be aware of. First check you’re allowed inside, as some are only open to people who follow their faith. Take off your shoes, carry a head covering and be aware that leather is also banned in some temples. Also, take care with photography. You can’t take images in some religious buildings and there’s a total ban on taking snaps of border crossings, military bases and bridges.
