Highlights

Phang Nga Bay, Thailand

Idyllic Islands

This iconic cruise has been designed by our Journey Planners to showcase many of the world’s most idyllic islands. The simply breathtaking island of Bora Bora typifies the definition of paradise, with overwater bungalows, a turquoise lagoon and coral reefs teeming with colourful marine life; whereas in Papeete you can discover its delightful mix of French Polynesian charm, vibrant culture, and beautiful landscapes. As you sail amongst Indonesian islands, you’ll visit gems such as Bali, ‘Island of the Gods’, and the lesser-known Weh Islands, set amongst lush green landscapes and tropical forests. In Komodo, you’ll have the chance to join a tour to see the world’s largest lizard, unique to the island; while the impossibly beautiful Thai islands of Phang Nga Bay and Phi Phi offer sheer limestone cliffs and rocky outcrops, characterised by their beach-fringed jungles, sheer cliffs and jade green seas.

Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

Captivating Cities

Bolette will take you to some of the world’s most enchanting cities. As you head ‘down under’, Auckland offers you the chance to uncover its vibrancy and diversity, including the renowned Sky Tower, blending beautifully with sparkling waters and lush landscapes. Sailing into Sydney is not-to-be-missed, as the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge dominate the skyline; but do take the chance to delve deeper into the city and discover its vibrant arts and culinary landscape. Singapore is a bustling metropolis with diverse cultural influences and a wonderful mix of traditional and contemporary architecture, such as Raffles Hotel with its Victorian-colonial design, where a Singapore Sling must surely be enjoyed, and the innovative Gardens by the Bay. Kuala Lumpur offers landmarks like the striking twin Petronas Towers, while from Safaga you’ll have the opportunity to visit Luxor, and home of Tutankhamun's tomb at the Valley of the Kings.

Maori dance

Diverse cultures

On this cruise, you’ll uncover a diverse array of cultures throughout the world. When in New Zealand, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in the rich traditions of the Maori people, including the renowned Haka dance which holds deep cultural significance, and hear stories of ancient myths which are still upheld in daily life. In Papeete, you’ll have the chance to see how Tahitians celebrate their customs through dance, song and various artworks, including meaningful tattoos, and take advantage of their philosophy ‘aita pea pea’ – meaning ‘not to worry’. During your time in Australia, experience the love of nature and a laid-back approach to life by visiting one of the many beautiful beaches or venture further afield on an unforgettable visit to Uluru. Mexico is home to cities of narrow streets with little bakeries and cafés offering local delicacies, while traditional folkloric dancing is popular and must be experienced. As Bolette continues with her journey, embrace Balinese culture in Indonesia by witnessing the bewitching dances that tell stories of the region.
