According to The New Indian Express many Indians book for a seven-night cruise from Kochi to Dubai on board Mariner of the Seas.
The cruise liner routinely sails in both Northern and Southern Asia.
It sails short cruises to South Korea and Japan from Shanghai, China, during the summer season and to Malaysia or Vietnam from Singapore during the northern winter season.

Royal Caribbean added that It also provided particular attention to the Indian travelling community, from its India-themed menus and restaurants to extending various offers for group bookings.
Replacing the ship in Asia will be another gem from Royal Caribbean’s fleet – Voyager of the Seas, with Singapore as its home port. Beginning April 30, Voyager of the Seas will offer a combined total of 77 sailings from Singapore, Hong Kong and Shenzhen in China, offering countless adventures across Southeast Asia.

Kochi, India is one of the finest natural harbors on the Arabian coast of India, Kochi (also known as Cochin) was once known as the center of the Indian spice trade. Subsequently, the town has a distinct European feel, due to the fact that it was once inhabited by the Portuguese, Dutch, and English. Their influence on the town’s forts, palaces, museums, and old churches is still evident today. Which is why Kochi is known as the “Queen of the Arabian Sea.”
