About Mumbai

Mumbai might just be like nowhere else you’ve ever visited. At times it seems impossibly busy, bustling with life at every turn – no wonder given that the population now stands at over 18 million.

Yet India’s largest city still has its quieter corners, and plenty of unforgettable sights. Spend a few days here and you’ll see why Mumbai is consistently rated one of the best cities in the world to visit.

Probably the city’s most famous attraction is the Gateway of India, an Arc de Triomphe-style monument built to mark the visit of King George V and Queen Mary. It is the first thing many visitors see when arriving by boat, and a great starting point for your journey around the city.

There are plenty of other excellent examples of colonial architecture, such as the Prince of Wales Museum, Victoria Terminus railway station and the Bombay High Court.

For an authentic Indian experience, the markets and bazaars are a must-see. You’ll find everything from clothing to food and souvenirs here, walking in amongst the locals who come here every week.

You’ll also find plenty of options when it comes to dining – from food stalls to authentic Indian restaurants serving the finest real curries.

Cruise lines currently providing trips that visit Mumbai include Royal Caribbean Cruises and Celebrity Cruises.
