Cruising in
Far East

Explore the fascinating sights and cultural delights of Southeast Asia by taking a cruise to this exotic corner of the globe. Appealing for so many reasons, not least the sheer natural beauty of the countries you will visit and the turquoise waters you will sail through.

Southeast Asia is a destination for the more adventurous cruiser, prepared to travel that bit further to be rewarded with memorable experiences of fabulous scenery, wildlife, and observations of everyday life. You will need to fly to your first departure point, unless it is forming part of a world cruise. You may be joining a world cruise just for the Southeast Asia segment, or you might be sailing with a ship that is based in that area for the season. The distance that flying covers means that the change in culture and environment will be striking, and worth the extra effort. It is an excellent opportunity to add a hotel stay at the beginning and end of your cruise too, which helps battle the jet lag and gives you the opportunity to spend time sightseeing at a leisurely pace. Combining a bit of time on land with your sea holiday gives you the very best of both worlds and is chance not to be missed.

The countries you are most likely to visit on a cruise to Southeast Asia are Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. Often you will start your cruise in Bangkok or Singapore, both must-see destinations in their own right. Bangkok is a magical and bustling lively city with gold leaf adorned temples and colourful floating markets. Singapore is a melting pot of people and cultures, a modern-day marvel with many legacies from the era when it was a part of the far reaching British Empire. The ports you will visit form an Oriental feast for the senses; panoramic rice fields, beautiful sun drenched beaches, and shimmering cities await your presence. With a new view from your stateroom every day, cruising around Southeast Asia is the best way to explore this magnificent corner of the globe.
