Cunard Cruise 2012
Trip Day 14
Tuesday, April 3rd
Agra, India
(the ship is "At Sea")


Today the ship is "At Sea" in the Indian Ocean heading on the first day of two towards Dubai.

If all has gone well then I am on day two of the Taj Mahal shore excursion in Agra, India visiting the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.



Since I am still in India the time is still 10.5 hours ahead of home .

The time in Dubai is 9 hours ahead of home and is what is known as Gulf Standard Time or GST. The ship has to change its time by another 90 minutes and has likely changed early today or will change early tomorrow or a little bit on both.

Here is the description of day two of the Taj Mahal shore excursion from Cunard's information:

DAY 2 - TAJ MAHAL, overnight in Agra

The Taj Mahal – Emperor Shah Jehan's enduring monument to love. Experience its splendour graced by the rays of the rising sun as you visit the monument at first light. This beautiful mausoleum in pure white marble is an architectural marvel. Its unique beauty and immaculately intricate execution all contribute to a breathtaking first impression. Return to the Hotel and enjoy breakfast before visiting Agra Fort, situated on the bend of the River Yamuna. The construction of the Fort began in 1565 and its imposing gates and red sandstone walls dominate the centre of the city. A special arrangement has been made with renowned Indian jeweller, Kohinoor, for you to view their private collection before returning to the Hotel for luncheon. You’ll have some free time to relax in the splendid surroundings of the Hotel in the afternoon. In the early evening, return to the Taj Mahal where you will remain until sunset in order to see the colours of the descending sun bathe this enchanting monument. Its unique beauty and symmetry contribute to its place as one of the Seven Modern Wonders of the World. Dinner will be served at the Hotel.

As always there are some additional notes but since they are the same as yesterdays I will not include them again here.

So, this is the plan for this day.
