Details

Day 1

Wednesday: Leave UK on an overnight flight to Hong Kong

Day 2

Thursday: Arrive Hong Kong and transfer to your hotel Regal Kowloon or similar

Day 3

Friday: Hong Kong – A morning sightseeing before you board your ship and orientate yourself before setting sail this evening.

Day 4

Saturday: After your whirlwind day yesterday, you will appreciate the chance to relax and unwind by the pool, enjoying a barbeque lunch today as we head south again towards Vietnam.

Day 5

Sunday: Halong Bay is one of the natural wonders of the world, with its archipelago of 3000 islands and rock formations dotted throughout the bay. Legend has it that a dragon descended into the sea and the islands were formed from its body, leaving you lots of mysterious caves to explore. Take some time to shop here for souvenirs and try some of the local cuisine.

Day 6

Monday: Halong Bay and another chance for you to drink in the splendours of the beautiful scenery of this UNESCO World Heritage site before the late afternoon departure.

Day 7

Tuesday: Why not try the aerobics class or a trip to the gym today if you are feeling energetic. Dinner and a show will help you unwind.

Day 8

Wednesday: A change of pace as you set out to explore the numerous temples and pagodas of the Cham culture in Nha Trang today. The vibrant local economy is based on fishing and the whole area has wonderful beaches so you will enjoy this historic and fascinating seaside town.

Day 9

Thursday: At sea in International waters again today as you head south east across the South China Sea towards the island of Borneo. You will have time to keep in touch with home today, write post cards or e-mail from the Internet room on board. After dinner try your luck in the ship’s Casino.

Day 10

Friday: Kota Kinabalu offers you the chance today to browse the local markets for handicraft bargains or take a ride on the North Borneo Railway – trip into a bygone age for steam train enthusiasts whilst taking in the lush tropical landscape. If you need to know more about the area, the Monsopiad Heritage Cultural Village offers you a glimpse of the local headhunting culture.

Day 11

Saturday: Check out the daily activities programme today. Lunch by the pool to make the most of the sunshine then have a leisurely afternoon before the cocktail hour and another delicious dinner

Day 12

Sunday: Visit Singapore for the day - shop, go to the zoo or relax on Sentosa Island.

Day 13

Monday. As you cruise off the coast of the Malaysian Peninsula today, relax and unwind on deck with lunch by the pool, soaking up the sun then perhaps join in some of the activities offered this afternoon. Sip a cocktail before dinner and listen to the piano before deciding where you will eat this evening.

Day 14

Tuesday. Enjoy an early breakfast before disembarking today in Ko Samui. Take the day to explore this stunning island with its palm fringed beaches where one of your options would be a snorkelling trip to the Angthong National Park. Take a trip out into the local countryside and have a short trek in the jungle followed by a refreshing swim by a waterfall or browse the local markets for handicraft treasures. Head back to the ship later this afternoon for an early evening departure as you make your way into the Gulf of Siam during the night.

Day 15

Wednesday. This morning you will arrive into the port of Laem Chabang where you can choose from a river boat ride on the Chao Phya River with temples and shopping thrown in for good measure. If the hustle and bustle of Bangkok does not appeal to you then take the shuttle service 25 kms to the famous beach resort of Pattaya where you can enjoy a soothing massage on the beach or take in the sights and sounds of street life there, not forgetting to sample the local cuisine. A late evening departure from the port ensures that you can make the most of the Thai capital and all it has to offer.

Day 16

Thursday. A day at sea today means you can make the most of the onboard facilities and relax as the miles slip away in the sunshine. Have lunch at the Mariners buffet and try your hand at Mah-jong this afternoon.

Day 17

Friday. Continue sailing today as you head towards Vietnam, arriving later this afternoon into Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon.

Day 18

Saturday. The shore excursions here have something for everyone from cookery lessons to city and countryside tours. The Cu Chi tunnels are legendary and at the height of the war they stretched almost to the border with Cambodia with space for hospitals, kitchen and living areas. Back to the ship for a mid-afternoon sailing taking you north again as you sip your cocktail and dine under the stars.

Day 19

Sunday. Continue our voyage through the South China Sea. It’s your choice today – relax and soak up the sun or join in with the deck games if you are feeling energetic. Maybe pamper yourself with spa treatment in the salon before dinner and a show.

Day 20

Monday. Once the most important port in central Vietnam, we arrive into Danang at breakfast time today leaving you free for the whole day to explore the city. Maybe the pristine beaches will tempt you to relax for a while but you will be sure to be drawn by the cave temples of Marble Mountain and their intricate stone carving. A mid-evening departure means you’ll still have time to explore the colourful streets before you make your way back to the ship.

Day 21

Tuesday. Sailing north again today, take some time to think about your exciting destination of Hong Kong for tomorrow.

Day 22

Wednesday. Hong Kong – the most cosmopolitan of cities! Something for everyone here but perhaps you could start with an tour of the city to get yourself orientated. Take a bus to the world famous Stanley Market or spend a few pence to get on board the Star Ferry or ride the funicular up to Victoria Peak and enjoy the spectacular view over the harbour and the whole city – particularly wonderful at dusk. You can fit this in before your flight home this evening
