Your cruise departs the port of Male, making it's way to Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka conjures up the exotic and the mysterious. Once known as Ceylon, the island boasts a fantastic landscape that ranges from primeval rain forest to the bustling modern streets of Colombo, the capital. A visitor to Sri Lanka has a wealth of options. Relax on some of the world's finest beaches. Explore the temples, halls and palaces of the last Sinhalese kingdom at Kandy. Or take a guided tour of an elephant orphanage. Colombo also offers an array of charms, from the Royal Botanic Gardens, once a royal pleasure garden, to the Pettah Bazaar, where vendors hawk everything under the sun.

Day at sea.

Known for its beaches and bustling marketplace, Europeans have been visiting here for many decades. There are also a number of waterfalls to explore, and those who love elephants should have no trouble catching a ride on one. Take an optional tour to the spice plantation, which is fun as well as educational. A guide explains how plants and spices can also have medicinal properties, and which are native to the area. You'll also learn about local nuts and fruits, such as cashews, betelnuts, star fruit, and custard apple

India's premier metropolis is a city of stark contrasts, modern towers of steel and glass stand next to stately stone edifices from the days of the Raj. Automobiles race down the crowded streets and everywhere one confronts the paradox of India. The commercial capital of the subcontinent, a large percentage of Mumbai's population lives in hutments without running water or electricity. Yet the fabled "Gateway of India" is a place of haunting beauty, from the marble serenity of the Jain Palace to the Elephanta Caves, where sculptures of Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu were carved out of solid rock over a millennia ago.

Disembark cruise and transfer (extra) to Bombay airport for your flight to Dubai. Overnight.

Fly Dubai - Malta with Emirates flight EK109.
