Cruises are stylish and appealing for their sheer exuberance. A well-framed photo atop the deck with the shiny blue hues of the sea in the backdrop could make for a viral Instagram post too. Yet the only thing stopping most of us from hopping aboard is the very lack of affordability of a cruise journey, until now that is. Here’s a look at some pocket-friendly cruises that make it possible to travel lavishly without breaking the bank. And the locations they cover will only make you want to book a cruise all the more sooner!
1. Mumbai to Goa
Amorous views of the Arabian Sea, an infinity pool at the rear end of the cruise ship, reading rooms, a well-equipped spa, express mani-pedi counters at the decks, and more leave little to imagination. Get all this for a night, at less than the price of a meal in a five-star hotel. Too sweet a deal, isn’t it?
