Cochin, India: The "Queen of the Arabian Sea," Cochin is one of the finest natural harbors in the world. Once a hub for the India spice trade, this port city has welcomed traders and travelers to its shore for more than 600 years. As a result, you’ll find an interesting mix of cultural influences on your Cochin cruise. Stroll Fort Kochi beach at sunset, framed by the Chinese fishing nets, visit St. Francis Church, where Vasco de Gama was buried, or the 400-year old Paradesi Synagogue. And, take in a Kathakali dance performance that will leave you spellbound. You won’t have to look far for lovely keepsakes and souvenirs, Cochin street markets are brimming with wonderful spices, trinkets, and bright silks. Similar to its architecture, there’s also a variety of international cuisines to explore – from upscale European-style restaurants and wine bars to authentic Indian restaurants and fresh seafood at the outdoor restaurants on Tower Rd.
