Zegrahm Expeditions is offering a break from the traditional holiday season vacation. Spend December 17, 2011 to January 3, 2012 cruising from the Indian ports of Chennai and Kochi to the Sri Lankan harbours of Trincomalee and Colombo and explore India's Lakshadweep Islands and the northern Maldives. Highlights of the expedition include snorkeling, diving, shore walks, birding with naturalists, and a visit to a 16th-century palace.
Since the holiday season is a time to share with family and friends, Zegrahm is offering a special group discount for this voyage. Groups of four travelers or more receive a 10 percent savings on the brochure rate for each member. Groups of eight or more travelers receive a 15 percent savings. Travelers that are unable to join the 2011 voyage can participate in the 2012 voyage, which takes place December 1-18, 2012.
