Whilst on-board, you will cruise into Southeast Asian waters with an itinerary boasting unforgettable day trips. First up is Ho Chi Minh City, the business and financial hub of Vietnam, with a prominent history of the Vietnam War.

The ship will then visit Bangkok and Ko Samui in Thailand, giving you an ideal mix of city and coastal scenery before cruising into Denpasar, home to several historical, multi-cultural and traditional gems of Bali.

On 27 November you will arrive in Perth, Australia where you will disembark the cruise and spend three nights at Cape Lodge in the heart of the Margaret River Wine Country. Here you can unleash your inner connoisseur visiting wineries and some of the region’s best private scenic spots.
