About Goa

Goa is renowned for beautiful beaches, crystal waters and gorgeous landscapes – a fantastic place for relaxation and romantic evening walks.

But that’s not all Goa has to offer. Venture further inland and you’ll find an array of Portuguese-influenced architecture which harks back to the region’s colonial roots. Much of this comes in the form of old churches and cathedrals, which many visitors are surprised to find in this part of the world.

There are also plenty of fun activities in Goa – especially the watersports, which are visible from many of the region’s 36 beaches.

And you’ll never find yourself short of options when it comes to food and drink. The region is teeming with fresh seafood like tiger prawns, lobster and fish – not to mention a wide range of authentic curries.

Cruise lines offering trips that visit Goa currently include Celebrity Cruises, Holland America Line and Royal Caribbean.
