Cruising around Asia

Welcome to the land of the unimaginable. A cruise to the Far East will see you swept away on an exhilarating exploration that nowhere else in the world can come close to.

Asia is an enchanted paradise of breath-taking landscapes that offer a new discovery at every turn. A place where postcard images become real, local cuisine is tasted just from its aroma and the frantic cities captivate you with their striking architecture.

From the soaring skyscrapers of Hong Kong’s metropolitan city, the ancient temples of Cambodia and the breath-taking beaches of Vietnam to the bustling local markets of Bangkok, the shopping-heaven of China and the bright lights of Singapore – there is so much to be explored.

Asia is a place where old meets new. One minute you will be strolling through winding streets lined with century-old spice stalls and the next you are faced with blinding lights reflecting from the mighty skyscrapers that stand before you.

As well as the bustling cities, many interior areas of these countries are very different. Remote villages surrounded by glistening lakes where traditional fishing and low-populated communities express a humble way of life.

Taking a cruise to this part of the world will take you on a journey of intriguing discovery. Enabling you to sail past the cities mesmerizing skylines, dock close to the remote areas and take you to some of the most picturesque beaches you will ever see.
