Is it possible to join a cruise after the first port of embarkation? We are looking at cruises from Mumbai to Singapore, our preferred route, because will will be spending time in Mumbai prior to that. Several lines have cruises from Dubai to Singapore with Mumbai being the second port, but we do not want to embark at Dubai.
The cruise lines we are looking at are small ship luxury lines such as Seabourn, Azamara, Seven Seas.
when I asked my TA he said,would have to pay for WHOLE cruise,,not a portion and ea.ship,country,etc.had different rules as to boarding mid cruise.So NO easy answer,was looking at similar lines too.
Try finding one you like, contact lines directly,and and for THEIR specifics.
I gave up on the idea..too much hassle.Will just see Istanbul again,,much to enjoy no matter times been there,right?
