India is a very famous place known for having the Unity in diversity . The winter sunshine, history and culture are entirely unique at this place. Apart from line voyages from or to Southampton - India has always been difficult to visit without arranging a land based holiday. Cruising along the northern waters is very much unreliable during winter season.

By flying out to Dubai, the risks of facing Europe’s winter weather is reduced and there is a chance to travel to the land of cultural delights via the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean. Royal Caribbean's voyage this season is unique and probably the best opportunity to take in the delight's of India which include 2 full days in Mumbai (Bombay).
