Port Louis, Mauritius

With its mix of mosques, temples, and colonial buildings, the capital city of Port Louis presents a grand tapestry of cultures. Indeed, this island nation has been ruled by the Dutch, French, and British and has sizable African and Indian populations (Hinduism is the largest religion). Take a stroll, and you might come upon the world’s oldest horseracing tracks, Champ de Mars; Aapravasi Ghat, a somber depot where the British once housed indentured laborers; or Boi Chéri tea factory, where you can learn how tea leaves are processed. Crystal Cruises offers you the unique opportunity to browse the stalls of the central market with a knowledgeable guide, learning about the local vegetables and spices used in Mauritian cooking. Partake in a cooking lesson at the historic, garden-shrouded Eureka Colonial House where you will then savor the fruits of your culinary labor over a leisurely lunch.
