Cruises from Mumbai
Mumbai, with its natural deep harbour on India's west coast, is its most populous city as well as the richest. Comprising seven islands that once were home to communities of fishing colonies, over time, joined to form the city earlier known as Bombay. It is now the commercial and entertainment capital of India. Surprisingly, the townscape is more reminiscent of a prosperous 19th-century English industrial city than anything you'd expect to find on the edge of the Arabian Sea.
Glistening skyscrapers and malls full of designer labels, Bollywood cinema, cricket on the Oval Maidan, and red double-decker buses flourish.
