Cruises to Goa (Mormugao)
With a uniquely singular style amongst Indian cities, this marvellous old Portuguese and Hindu city studded with vibrant temples and majestic churches is a meld of cultures. Goa boasts a stunning Baroque cathedral completed in 1619, the Sé Catedral. Portuguese rule over Goa lasted 450 years, and its legacy remains strong in quaint, colourful Panjim. Sun worshipers will want to head to one of the area’s exquisite beaches. The local Goan cuisine, a hybrid of colonial and local flavours, is a highlight.

Goa draws you in and keeps you under its spell. Centuries as a Portuguese colony flavour every aspect of life here, from the whitewashed 17th Century churches to the distinctive cuisine.
Above all, beach life is at the heart of the Goan experience. On your Goa Cruise, relax into the seductively slow pace of life; lazing on the soft sands of a palm-fringed beach, the crystal clear waters of the Arabian Sea lapping gently at your feet.
If you can tear yourself away from the beach, a tour of the capital, Panjim, is a must, to marvel at temples, churches and architectural gems that tell the story of the region’s history. Stop for lunch, enjoying a Goan fish curry or one of the many Portuguese specialities on offer.
As evening draws in, the famous nightlife begins. Soak up the atmosphere before returning to your Celebrity cruise for a well-earned rest

Light clothes are advisable and depending upon the time of year, a layer for the evening. Rains come in the summer months, when waterproof clothing will be useful. Most importantly, for your Goa cruise, pack your swimwear and sun cream to make the most of those beautiful beaches.
