Why should I go on a cruise?
Cruises are a fantastic holiday type for many reasons: they provide flexibility, accommodation, entertainment and travel all in one, making them extremely cost-effective. Cruises provide travellers with the ability to experience an array of destinations in a short amount of time, whilst experience luxury and first-class travel.
There are many reasons to select a cruise holiday, but some of our stand-out options are:

The Starting Point
To beginning of your Indian Ocean adventure is entirely up to you.

Some cruises also start in Mauritius, so if you would prefer to focus your trip on the exploration of these tropical islands, that would be a great starting point. The beauty of a cruise around the Indian Ocean is that island hopping is so accessible and encouraged, allowing you to really experience the true beauty of these islands.
When should I plan my trip?
This question is entirely dependent on where you would like to focus your Indian Ocean visit, as this location spans such a large area.

However, if you’re planning on visiting India during your cruise, this is actually monsoon season, so we would recommend visiting between January and March for the best heat and weather.

The Indian ocean spans a mammoth distance, covering nearly 20% of the water of the world. As the third largest ocean, the islands are vast and varied, providing a hugely unique travel experience. This means that your cruise can include a range of highly diverse locations, including:
