Cruises to Mumbai

Mumbai, formerly Bombay, is a feast for the senses. The intricate, tranquil Shree Siddhivinayak temple draws the faithful and the merely curious alike. The Mount Mary Church, the Hanging Gardens and the Gandhi Memorial Museum are popular sites. The colonial-era Victoria Station, one of Mumbai's grand buildings, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and also a place to grab a bite. But don't look for the name Victoria Station - it is officially called Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, or CST for short.
