Cochin/India, 4.00 – 17.00 hrs

Take a relaxed stroll along winding alleyways and through the local spice market. Alternatively, take a ride in a tuk-tuk* and gain insights into Indian cuisine*. It is worth taking a detour to the backwaters of Alleppey*, a labyrinth of lagoons, or Fort Cochin*, where you can see the huge wooden structures of the famous Chinese fishing nets. Alternatively, set off on a several-day overland excursion* to Delhi and the Taj Mahal (with re-embarkation in Mumbai).

Agatti/Lakkadives/India , 8.30 – 18.00 hrs

A unique lagoon with crystal-clear water, thousands of sea turtles and an underwater habitat considered by those in the know to be the most beautiful in the world. Just one question remains: would you rather snorkel or relax?

Sun, 14.05.2017

Mumbai (Bombay)/India, 6.00 – 18.00 hrs

A world in itself, full of contrasts like Bollywood charm and sacred, fortune-bringing cows on the streets, steaming roadside food stalls and luxury hotels, and haggling sellers and colourful Hindu gods. You can decide how you want to explore this megacity – for instance, on a discovery tour* or on the excursion “Mumbai experience – the many faces of the metropolis”*. Enjoy peace and relaxation over tea at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel* or at a yoga class*.

TIP:

Action!
Do the same as the cinephile Indians: go to the cinema. Even if you have no knowledge of the language, a Bollywood romance is easy to follow.

Testimonials

  • “I do wish to thank you, the Charge Nurse and the rest of your dialysis team. You’re doing a great service to those in need of it and who are keen to travel at the same time.  Your variety of ocean and river cruises gives all those who may be interested a wide choice of styles and destinations, while at the same time being able to rely on professional care and service in dialysis needs. Keep up the good work. Thank you once again”

    Mr Dominic Yau
  • Cruise was wonderful. We loved the Europa2  and Dr. Westerman was a delight to have do our dialysis sessions.

    Mrs S Pearl
  • We had a lovely holiday and have lots of pictures to remind us of where we went – they are on my screensaver already and are a very enjoyable reminder.  As you know I love these holidays. I am really grateful that I could have a holiday while on dialysis – it is so lovely to get away from home for more than a night!

    Mrs L Osborn
  • I’d just like to thank you and your professional Dialysis Team for making my first ever cruise experience so wonderful.  Starting from the time of booking, through the worst parts – waiting for the departure date to come around, right through until disembarkation.

    The paperwork, though comprehensive was clear and easy for myself and my home clinic nurses to complete, and your advice on what to pack for the expectations of the cruise liner took that stress away.

    It was good to meet everyone in your team and my compatriots for treatment so soon after embarkation and everything always felt like it was no problem and easily handled.  The dialysis team was totally professional at all times, but that was also complimented by their personalities which meant time on dialysis went quite quickly chatting etc.  The Nephrologist was extremely thorough at all times but was also quite amusing in her own way.  The Charge Nurse was a wealth of experience and definitely the glue bonding the team together and always available for everyone at all times.  The two nurses providing support were effective team players and knew their stuff.

    Being an accompanied cruise meant there was always someone about if you wanted a chat even on the excellent inclusive shore trips.  It was good to see the planning that went in to arranging dialysis sessions around these activities and the team were always looking to be flexible on start stop times.

    I will do this again in the future, need to save up a bit first, but would recommend it to anyone.  Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

    Mr K Summerhayes
  • I wanted to tell you that it was a wonderful cruise and thank you for all the efforts you have had in respect to the dialyses.  Everything was working at the full satisfaction.
