Silversea Luxury Cruises A Mumbai

Mumbai

Delhi may be the capital city, but it's Mumbai that encapsulates all the dynamic, chaotic parts that make up modern India. This is where you'll find everything from succulent street food to haute cuisine, bargain-basement bazaars to the finest haute couture, humbling poverty to staggering wealth, sacred temples to hedonist nightclubs. Mumbai is India—vibrant, hectic, frustrating, enervating, and exhilarating, warts and all. Mumbai is a city of extremes, where slum-dwelling strivers making dollars a day serve Bollywood stars and industrial billionaires. View more

It's a 24-hour city stocked with some of the best late-night street food in the world, as well as fine-dining restaurants of renowned chefs. It's a cosmopolitan city of people from all over India that's nonetheless home to strident parochialism. It's a city of dreams for millions of Indians that, at the same time, affords so few any measure of comfort. And it's a beautiful city of silver towers when viewed by twilight from the new Bandra-Worli Sea Link bridge over the Arabian Sea that connects the Western suburbs to the city, but which quickly descends into a maze of winding—often dirty—streets and alleys when viewed up close. Sensory overload is the name of the game on the island formerly known as Bombay (and yes, many locals still call it by its previous moniker). The first thing that hits you when you arrive at the airport is the smell—spicy, fishy, and, to be honest, often not altogether pleasant. Next comes a crazed cab ride through the seemingly lawless streets (should your driver run a red light or, just as likely, drive on the wrong side of the road, remain calm). Then a traffic jam in the midst of a veritable symphony of honking, in which barefoot children, often holding infants, and tragically disfigured men and women knock at your window, begging for change. Persevere through, though; embrace and try to understand the natural hazards of the Third World, and you'll find yourself in the middle of a vibrant, often beautiful city. There's plenty to see in Mumbai, but it's not generally in the form of stationary monuments like those in London, Paris, or Delhi. The art of experiencing Mumbai lies in eating, shopping, and wandering through the strikingly different neighborhoods and the various markets. Think of Mumbai as a 50-km (30-mile) -long open-air bazaar. Colaba, headed by Gateway of India, is the tourist district and main drag for visitors, and from the Gateway of India to Colaba Market, along the main road, is a walkable stretch of hotels, pubs, restaurants, and interesting shops. Churchgate and Nariman Point are the business and hotel centers, and major bank and airline headquarters are clustered in skyscrapers on Nariman Point. The district referred to as Fort—which includes Mumbai's hub, Flora Fountain—is filled with narrow, bustling streets lined with small shops and office buildings, as well as colleges and other educational facilities. Another upscale residential neighborhood, Malabar Hill, north of Churchgate on Marine Drive, is leafy and breezy, with fine, old stone mansions housing wealthy industrialists and government ministers. Shopping and people-watching are most colorfully combined in Mumbai's chaotic bazaar areas, such as Chor Bazaar, Zaveri (jewelry) Bazaar, and Crawford Market (aka Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Market). Many of the city's newest and trendiest shops and restaurants are now out in the suburbs—where more and more people have been moving due to soaring real-estate prices and a lack of space—but South Mumbai still retains some of the very best. Some travelers opt to stay in the suburbs, either in Bandra, at the end of the new Bandra-Worli Sea Link, or in Juhu, a popular coastal suburb between Mumbai and the airports (about 20 km [12 miles] north of the city center). Juhu's beaches aren't clean enough for swimming, and the place can be scruffy, but staying out here is a good way to observe everyday Indian life beyond the shadow of Mumbai's skyline. Sunday nights bring families down to the beach for an old-fashioned carnival, complete with small, hand-powered Ferris wheels, and lantern-lit snack stalls hawking sugarcane.

Marvels of Mumbai

Experience the highlights of Mumbai during a scenic, half-day orientation tour of this fascinating city.


Gateway of India and Prince of Wales Museum

Depart the pier for the brief drive to the Gateway of India. The city's most famous landmark, this Indo-Saracenic archway was built in 1911 to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary.


After a photo stop here, visit the Prince of Wales Museum, which is crowned by a white Mughal-style dome. Upon arrival, view jade work, weapons from the Mughal Empire, clay and terracotta figures from the 3rd century B.C., Greek-influenced 4th- and 5th-century heads and figures, superb Indian paintings, illustrated manuscripts, and exquisite miniatures.


Marine Drive and Mani Bhavan

Next, proceed along Marine Drive, Mumbai's seaside promenade. Its graceful curve sweeps from the skyscrapers at Nariman Point to the foot of Malabar Hill. At the northern end is the lively Chowpatty Beach, a Mumbai institution. From here, a visit is made to Mani Bhavan, Gandhi's Bombay base between 1917 and 1934. Now a permanent museum and memorial to the Mahatma, Mani Bhavan contains a research library of more than 20,000 volumes, along with personal artefacts, photos and letters. Gandhi's sitting room/bedroom is preserved behind glass.


Dhobhi Ghat and Victoria Terminus

Your tour continues with a photo stop at Dhobhi Ghat, an impressive operation where tons of clothing from all over Mumbai are laundered, pressed and bundled before being returned to their owners. During the 40-minute drive back to the pier, pass by the Victoria Terminus, a remarkable railway station built during the year of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. Inspired by St. Pancras Station in London, the Victoria Terminus features impressive domes, spires, Corinthian columns and minarets, and serves a half-million commuters daily.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.8 miles (about 1.29 kilometres) over paved surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, 50 steps at the Prince of Wales Museum (only the first floor is accessible by elevator) and 35 steps at Mani Bhawan. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing and sunscreen, glasses and hat. Bring local currency for camera fees (50 INR for mobile phones and tablets, 100 INR for cameras, 5000 INR for video at the time of printing) and books about Mahatma Gandhi at Mani Bhavan. At some sites, depending on traffic and parking conditions, it may be necessary to cross busy streets. Sites may also be crowded and guests need to exercise normal caution.

Mumbai Panorama

See the highlights of Mumbai from the comfort of your coach during this 2.5 hour panoramic sightseeing tour of this bustling city.


Gateway of India and Marine Drive

Depart the pier for a panoramic sightseeing tour of Mumbai City. Begin with a drive past the Gateway of India. The city's most famous landmark, this Indo-Saracenic archway was built in 1911 to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary. From here, proceed along Marine Drive, Mumbai's seaside promenade. Its graceful curve sweeps from the skyscrapers at Nariman Point to the foot of Malabar Hill, Mumbai's ritziest neighbourhood.


Malabar Hill, Jain Temple & Victoria Terminus

Since the 18th century, Malabar Hill's forested slopes, fresh sea breeze and panoramic views have attracted wealthy denizens who reside here in mansions, bungalows and luxury high-rise apartment blocks.

Continuing on, pass by the Victoria Terminus, a remarkable railway station built during the year of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.

The Caves of Elephanta

Explore the ancient beauty and art of India during this scenic, half-day tour to the Caves of Elephanta.


Gateway of India

Elephanta Island

Over 1,000 years ago, Hindu craftsmen excavated caves in the volcanic rock high up on the slope, depicting their beliefs in elegant, massive carvings. The Elephanta Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, was probably created during the 8th century A.D., though the caves may have had earlier Buddhist origins. From the landing area, walk up the long stairway to the top of the hill. In front of the main cave is a veranda with a pillar carved in one of the various manifestations of Shiva at each end.


Elephanta Caves

Upon entering the cave, see magnificent sculptures featuring various manifestations of Shiva. Included are Shiva as Nataraj, Lord of the Cosmic Dance, a powerful bust of Trimurti, the three-faced Shiva, Shiva bringing the Ganges River to earth, Shiva crushing the demon Andhaka, and Shiva with his consort, Parvati. Following your visit, walk back down to the landing area and embark your boat for the ride back to the Gateway of India.


Your tour concludes with a brief transfer back to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.2 miles (about 1.9 kilometres), with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 125 steps at Elephanta Island. This tour is not suitable for guests with claustrophobia, guests with limited mobility and those who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, non-slip walking shoes, and bring sun protection from the ship.

Sedan chairs are available for guests to go up to the entrance of the caves at their own expense. There is no scheduled shopping stop; guests can shop from the stalls along the walking route at the caves. Guests should carry some local currency for the camera fee, sedan chairs, etc. Guests should be advised of pesky hawkers around the boat landing area. The tour duration may vary due to pier activity and tides.

Lord Elphinstone, Governor of the Bombay Presidency, was another early patron, and Sir George Birdwood, one of its first curators. In 1862, it was christened as the Victoria and Albert Museum in honour of the Queen Empress of India, and the Prince consort.
