The Joyful Traveler

I am a traveler, exploreradventurer. But beyond exploratory activities and thrilling adventures, sometimes we just want to sink in luxury to spoil and pamper self, during travels. And why not? I did the same on my recent cruise to Maldives on Costa Italian ship.

Cruise lured me with all the spice of luxury. And I plunged and merged in it. Each moment was special. Celebrations all along. Sharing few pics of the ship.

Aboard this 14 deck Costa ship I nourished my senses to the fullest. Just being an indulgent and playful self. Relaxed mornings beside swimming pool. Fun filled afternoons with various activities each day. Enjoying endless delicacies. Happy evenings in ballrooms and casino. Watching many spectacular shows in theater. Swaying to live music. Crooning along with singers. Night out in disco. And then little dreamy sleep in dawn.

I was in such joy. Indu, the joyful traveler, I tagged myself on March 8, 2018. Celebrating Woman’s day differently. By me. For me.

Few international cruises start from Mumbai in India to different destinations of the world. And Costa cruise is one of such luxury cruises which I embarked in India to Maldives, one of the most popular country for stunning beaches on its hundreds of tiny dreamy islands.


  1. I completely understand soaking in some luxury once in a while.
    The ship looks equipped with everything one could ask for.

    How much does it cost on an average and also how many days does it take to reach Maldives from India?

  2. I would love to try a cruise one time in my lifetime. It seems like a fun adventure. I would totally pamper myself for sure and definitely enjoy the entertainment.

  3. I’ve not been on this cruise line before although I’ve been on cruises. It would be a wonderful experience to try. I love all of your photos, it makes me want to book a cruise right away.

  4. You’ve done some incredible adventuring, you are an inspiration to women across the world! After all the places you’ve been so far I think this cruise was a well deserved and relaxing way to travel!

  5. I definitely enjoyed the “tour”. Apart from movies and videogames, I only know the insides of a ship through fictional designs. I find it much more beautiful, Costa Classica is such a beautiful example of how to enjoy the seas.

  6. That looks like an amazing experience, love all your pictures and the video. I have been on a cruise from England to Holland but I was sick during the trip due to the bad fever I got in London. I do want to go on a cruise again.

  7. Ok, this looks like an amazing time. I have been wanting to go on a cruise again, after seeing your post, I think it may be time to book one.

  8. I guess cruising is the best getaway ever, once it’s in your blood, you’ll get hooked. I love the experience where you are treated like a king and queen with impeccable service,

  9. Looks like you really enjoyed! We should always treat ourselves! I would like to go on a cruising like you, and tour to the Maldives sounds amazing.

  10. I have never been on a cruise! Thank you so much for sharing, I am intrigued! I hope they become more environmentally friendly!

  11. I’m definitely a luxury traveller and would rather take less trips as long as they’re all high quality to be honest. I’ve never been on a cruise yet but I have my eye on the Disney one and yours looks super fun!

  12. I have been to cruise but the cruise I board on was so much smaller than this one. I would love to visit a more luxury cruise like this one. I love to watch a live show too.

  13. I love cruise and traveling! The photos reminded me of the cruise I went when I was young with my family! I’d love to go on another cruise trip soon!

  14. The cabins of cruise ships give me anxiety because they are so small but other than that, cruises seem so much fun! You look like you had a great time

  15. It definitely seems worth it to me! What a beautiful experience it is! I’d love to try cruising someday in the future, perhaps when my children are a little older.

  16. Such a wonderful cruise to take a wonderful trip. It’s so really nice ambiance to spend with family and loved ones.
