In ancient Sanskrit literature, the Indian Ocean was referred to as 'Ratnākara', or 'the mine of gems', which - considering that the islands in the Indian Ocean are amongst the most beautiful and exotic in the world - seems appropriate.

Whilst the Indian Ocean is the third largest ocean, extending from Africa on the west, up to Asia on the north, to Australia on the east, and on the south by the Southern Ocean (or, arguably, by Antarctica, depending on definition), a typical Indian Ocean cruise will usually focus on the stunning islands of the Seychelles, the coral atolls of the Maldives, the lagoons and reefs of Mauritius, and Sri Lanka, and may go as far as the Andaman Islands. Although given the ocean's geography, an Indian Ocean cruise makes for an excellent combination with South Africa or east African destinations such as Kenya, Tanzania, or the off-shore island of Madagascar, or indeed with Asia cruises.

Tropical paradise, enchanting, magical and exotic islands of breathtaking natural beauty, excellent diving opportunities amidst coral reefs, and much more await on an enticing Indian Ocean cruise.
