Auckland - New Zealand
New Zealand’s biggest city and major cruise port, Auckland, sits between the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea, which is how it came to host the America’s Cup twice - in 1999 and 2002 - attracting investment to transform the harbour side into a superb meeting and eating place which all Auckland cruise visitors can now appreciate. The Viaduct Harbour area now boasts outdoor restaurants ideally placed to view the hundreds of yachts attracted to this icon of sailing success. This ‘City of Sails’ is also home to New Zealand’s impressive National Maritime Museum which charts the nation’s seafaring history. Harbour ferries offer a great way of viewing the city, either by crossing the bay to old-established Devonport or under the harbour bridge to the suburb of Birkenhead. Otherwise cruises to Auckland take in all the sights from the revolving restaurant at the top of the Sky Tower, the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere at 328 metres. On Auckland cruises, shore excursions can take you to the remarkable geysers and mud pools of Rotorua.

Napier - New Zealand
In 1931 Napier was dramatically changed by an earthquake. The waterlocked city suddenly grew in size and, as a result of the rebuilding, many of the buildings here today are art deco in style. Embark on one of our cruises to Napier end discover the aesthetics of this era. A walk around the town takes you on a journey through the soft pastels, zigzags, geometric shapes and rising suns. For those considering spending a few hours ashore, Napier cruise itinerary also includes a visit to Hawke’s Bay. Nature has been kind to Hawke’s Bay, putting the region at the forefront of New Zealand’s wine industry.

Wellington - New Zealand - New Zealand
New Zealand’s capital and cruise port Wellington, is blessed with a wonderful setting, overlooking a glittering harbour filled with bobbing sailing boats. Behind the gleaming modern skyscrapers of its centre, you will find the city’s history well preserved in some outstanding old buildings. Embark on one of our cruises to Wellington and visit the second-largest wooden building in the world, the old Government Building – which was built in 1876. To see New Zealand’s story brought most vividly to life, your Wellington cruise tours include a visit the Te Papa Museum, a multi-level extravaganza of hands-on learning where you can explore a Maori meeting house, take a virtual reality bungee jump or even experience an earthquake. When Wellington cruises have so much to offer, make time, too, to enjoy lunch with a view on the city’s lively waterfront, then take a four minute ride in the Kelburn cable car to see the marvellous views from the top of Mount Victoria.

Sydney - Australia - Australia
One of the world’s great cities and harbours, Sydney always lives up to great expectations. When you are on one of our Sydney cruises, the first glimpse of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House will stay in your memory forever. Even before the 2000 Olympics, cruises to Sydney had much to offer – hosting the games just made the city even better with improved facilities and extra dining and entertainment venues all round. From the waterside restaurants fringing the historic Rocks district, the Sydney cruise tour takes you around Sydney Cove past the Circular Quay ferry terminal to that remarkable Opera House and the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens.

Brisbane - Australia
Classic Australian pastimes such as surfing and swimming from sensational beaches – that is what you will find on the coastline surrounding Queensland’s capital and cruise port Brisbane. Cruises here bring to your holiday a balance of both nature and elegant grounds. To the south are the high-rise hotels which make up the exciting Surfers’ Paradise and Gold Coast resorts, while to the north there is the beautiful and more sedate Sunshine Coast. Cultural attractions in downtown Brisbane are located in and around the South Bank Parklands by the Brisbane River – site of the 1988 World Expo. In close proximity you will discover the Queensland Museum and the State Art Gallery, which features many Aboriginal works. Shore excursions from our cruises to Brisbane also include the Butterfly House and Maritime Museum. The best shopping can be found at the Myer Centre complex on the city’s central commercial artery, Queen Street. While enjoying your Brisbane cruise walk south to admire the fine architecture around the former Treasury building and then discover the imaginatively landscaped Botanic Gardens.

Yorkeys Knob - Australia
With such a wonderfully evocative name, it’s little wonder to find a connection with Yorkshire; that capital of eccentric place names. Yorkeys Knob sits on a headland north of Cairns, in an area of stunning natural beauty, situated as it is on the glorious Half Moon Bay and within touching distance of the Great Barrier Reef.

Alotau - Papa New Guinea
As the provincial capital of the beautiful Milne Bay region, Alotau is one of Papua New Guinea’s most picturesque and interesting towns. Maintaining strong links with Papua New Guinea’s cultural past, the town hosts an annual canoe festival with race participants donning traditional dress and ceremonial war paint.

Okinawa - Japan
Okinawa Island is the largest of the 160 Ryukyu Islands lying in the Pacific Ocean. The site of one of the most intense battles in military history, Okinawa has rebuilt itself since its near destruction in 1945. In the coastal capital city of Naha you’ll find a mile-long stretch of shops and restaurants along ‘Kokusai Dori’. Shuri Castle, once the royal seat of the Ryukyu dynasty, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and displays a unique mix of Chinese, Okinawan, and Japanese styles. Many traditional crafts including pottery and laquerware are still produced on the island, but woven and dyed fabrics are the most distinctive elements that made Okinawa famous. Cruises to Okinawa also gives you the opportunity to listen to a unique and attractive combination of original Okinawan sounds with American rock and jazz influences, learn their secrets in art and produce your own souvenir or simply enjoy a scenic drive of this beautiful island.

Osaka, tours to Kyoto - Japan - Japan
Japan’s third largest city, Osaka offers your cruise holiday a combination of historical and cultural attractions with modern developments. Before World War II, Osaka was an exotic maze of crisscrossing waterways and traditional wooden buildings, but unfortunately most of these were destroyed in the bombings. Today however, the city has leapt into the architectural future with such buildings as the Imperial Hotel, the inverted U-shape of the Umeda Sky Building and the enormous Ferris wheel on top of the HEP Five complex. In addition, cruises to Osaka will also offer you the chance to see the gentle side of Japan. Kyoto, the former capital, is a serene city of geometric gardens, geisha houses, cherry trees, temples and palaces. While on Osaka cruises witness the ritual of the tea ceremony or savour a teriyaki lunch in the loveliest of Japanese cities.

Nagasaki - Japan - Japan
On Nagasaki cruises you can look forward to rich cosmopolitan atmosphere and the beautiful seaside scenery. Standing over the Nakashima River is Japans first Chinese-style stone bridge, the Spectacle Bridge, which reflects as ovals on the surface of the water. It is said that bridges here were only built on roads that led to temples, ornate structures that still adorn many of the streets. Etched in the memory of Nagasaki is the 1945 atomic bomb that destroyed much of the city. Today it still lingers in poignant reminders, such as Peace Park and the A-Bomb Museum, all part of our Nagasaki cruise shore excursions.

Busan - South Korea - South Korea
South Korea’s second largest city after Seoul, Busan likes its attractions to be gargantuan! Head to the world’s largest department store, Centum City, or spend the day relaxing on Haeundae Beach – Korea’s largest. If a more cultural experience beckons, admire the pagodas, gates, temple halls, and shrines of Beomeosa Temple.

Shanghai - China
Once known as the Paris of the East, Shanghai now calls itself the Pearl of the Orient. It is China’s largest and most cosmopolitan city and no other city can better capture the urgency and excitement of Chinas economic reform. A port city, lying at the mouth of Asias longest and most important river, the Yangtze, Shanghai’s spectacular architecture is catching the worlds attention. Charming old houses are making way for new museums, theatres and shiny new high-rises. But there is a comfortable blend of modern and traditional. You can admire the exquisite Yu Garden with its Teahouse and Bridge of Nine Turnings or the Temple of the Jade Buddha. At the Shanghai Museum, you can peruse its works of art, which simultaneously draw you through the pages of Chinese history. But today in Shanghai, you can also enjoy the fast-paced lives of Chinas most glamorous, cosmopolitan and open people.

Hong Kong - China
Hong Kong may boast some 236 islands but most of the five million inhabitants of this former British Crown Colony are concentrated on just one, Hong Kong Island, and one city, Kowloon, on the facing peninsula. It is known as one of the most crowded and vibrant places in the world, making Hong King cruises a must see. Be energised just walking down its teeming streets where you can buy anything from a handmade suit, fancy jewellery and the latest duty-free electronic gizmos to Asian antiques. Also part of our cruises to Hong Kong is a journey between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island with Star Ferry, which gives you the experience of the world’s busiest crossings. For one of the steepest journeys, try the tram which travels to the top of Victoria Peak, 1,300ft above the harbour. And for the ultimate taste sensation on your Hong Kong cruise, head for Aberdeens floating restaurants featuring every kind of Asian cuisine.

Nha Trang - Vietnam - Vietnam
Set against a backdrop of lushly-forested mountains, with a beautiful waterfront and wide, golden beaches, the Vietnamese seaside resort of Nha Trang is now well on its way to becoming a sophisticated modern town. Still, on cruises to Nha Trang you will find plenty of old fashioned charm, though, in the colourful markets, lively restaurants and broad streets of its bustling downtown area, which lies close to the clear turquoise seas, uncrowded sands and excellent diving and snorkelling facilities of the main City Beach. And when you tire of sunbathing, the region surrounding the city is rich in history. Embark on one a Nha Trang cruise and discover the fascinating story of the Chams, an ancient Hindu / Moslem ethnic minority who run their society along matriarchal lines, with property passing from mother to daughter. One of their most important sacred sites – the Towers of Po Nagar, which date from the 7th century – lie close to the city. Also worth seeing while enjoying one of our Nha Trang cruises is the exquisite Long Son Pagoda.

Phu My - Vietnam
In amidst the swarming streets and markets of Ho Chi Minh City, stand numerous landmarks bound in history and tradition: from museums that tell the stories of war to ornamental pagodas that are filled with characters from Buddhist and Taoist religions, all of which can be seen while enjoying one of our cruises to Phu My. From Phu My, your cruise shore excursion leads you to the fascinating tunnel network at Cu Chi, used by the Viet Cong during the war. At their height they stretched from the South Vietnamese capital to the Cambodian border.

Laem Chabang
Much of Laem Chabang’s old laid-back charm remains, despite its rapid transformation into the country’s ‘Riviera’ - a major gateway for visiting cruise passengers. Located on Thailand’s east coast, this tranquil region of fruit orchards, gem mines and oyster and orchid farms, is now also a great place for swimming, snorkelling and experiencing traditional Thai village life. You will be hard pressed to know what to do first when you visit the fascinating nearby capital of Bangkok, a treasury of old temples, fine palaces and extravagant art. For a taste of Old Asia, tour the fabulously ornate buildings of the Grand Palace, where you will see Buddha statues exquisitely worked in ivory, crystal, silver and gold. Or the Royal Barge Museum – home to the splendid vessels used in royal processions. For shoppers, Bangkok has everything from fake designer good to fine antiques. Barter your way around the markets of Sukhumvit Road and Siam, or browse the traditional shops on Chinatown’s Chareon Krung Road.

Singapore - Singapore
Cruises to Singapore have much to offer. The city’s glorious parks have earned it a reputation as the Garden City of the Far East but you will also be cruising into one of the world’s busiest ports. Once ashore, Singapore cruise passengers can enjoy a stroll through the famous Tiger Balm Gardens with its statues of characters from Chinese legend peeping out from the trees. Ornithologists will love the Jurong Bird Park, with its elaborate aviaries, waterfalls and restaurants, while East Coast Park offers hiking and cycling tracks, a marine theme park and beach water sports. This vibrant city is also heaven for shoppers, as you will discover on our Singapore cruises. Head for Orchard Road for bargains on international brands, or soak up some local atmosphere and sample foodie treats while you browse the craft and souvenir stalls of Chinatown, Little India and Mosque Street. For fake designer bargains, haggle your way around Bugis Street market. But don’t forget to leave time for a Singapore Sling amid the colonial splendours of the famous Raffles Hotel.

Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia
Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur may have got its name - meaning ‘muddy confluence’ - from the two rivers which meet in its centre, but cruise ships must dock at the deepwater cruise port Kelang, which is 90 minutes drive away. This, though, is good news for Kuala Lumpur cruise visitors because along the way to the capital, you not only see the magnificent Salahuddin ‘Blue’ Mosque - the largest in southeast Asia with room for 16,000 worshippers - but also visit the Batu Caves where a stone staircase with 272 steps leads up to a Hindu Shrine. If you make the effort, you are rewarded with the company of scores of monkeys which live around the caves. KL - as the capital is known throughout Malaysia - is a mixture of modern buildings (including the world famous Petronas Towers) and fascinating historic districts like Chinatown. While you are enjoying one of our cruises to Kuala Lumpur, it is well worth a visit to The National Museum as it tells the entertaining story of KL and Malaysian history.

Phuket - Thailand
Thailand’s Phuket is one of its most popular resorts and a wonderful place to enjoy a ‘chill out’ day. Embark on one of our Phuket cruises and experience the lush scenery this destination has to offer, its colourful markets and soft white beaches. Bustling Patong Beach has the best range of shops, market stalls and places to eat but Kalim Beach, north of Patong, is removed from the main hustle but still close enough to be lively. While enjoying your Phuket cruise you can try parasailing or jet skiing, or simply relax with an exquisite beach massage. Snorkellers will be in heaven at unspoiled Karon Beach, and you can encounter land-based wildlife at the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project near Bang Pae Waterfalls, or at Phuket’s elephant sanctuary, where you can ride one of these magnificent creatures along a woodland trail and reward it with a lunch of bananas.

Colombo - Sri Lanka - Sri Lanka
For international shopping and restaurants, head for the Fort District in the north of the city and then catch some local colour in the Pettah Bazaar District. This is a warren of streets rich in mosques and Buddhist and Hindu temples and lined with shops selling everything from exquisitely worked gold jewellery (on Sea Street) to herbs for Ayurvedic treatments and bargain-priced CDs and cassettes (Malwatte Avenue). To the south of the city, you can enjoy lush scenery and watch a cricket match at the lovely seafront park of Galle Face Green, then enjoy a stylish afternoon tea at the historic Galle Face Hotel – after admiring the exquisite hand carved doors at its entrance.

Dubai - United Arab Emirates
Known as the ‘Pearl of the Arabian Gulf’, Dubai is one of the seven emirates that comprises the United Arab Emirates. With a mix of traditional architecture and glittering modern buildings, Dubai is a place of fascinating contrasts that can best be described as the ‘Middle East meets Hong Kong with a little Las Vegas thrown in for style’. It is also the home of sand, sea and sun. As you sail into the formidable city of Dubai, you can’t help but to gaze up in wonder at the magnificent Burj Al Arab Hotel. Designed to resemble a billowing sail, it stands at a height of 321 metres and dominates the Dubai coastline. Visit Dubai’s waterfront and take a boat trip up Dubai creek, admire the beautiful architecture of the Grand Mosque, boasting the city’s tallest minaret, or barter for souvenirs in the many souks around the city. Don’t miss the Spice Souk and the glittering Gold Souq – crammed full of exquisite jewellery and at prices lower than anywhere else in the world. From designer clothes and custom-made sari’s, to perfumes and spices you can get anything you desire. With guaranteed sunshine the multitude of water sports is spectacular, but your might like to try sand-skiing, 4-wheel drive desert safaris or camel riding. Or for something a little more relaxing enjoy a moonlit Bedouin barbeque, deep in the heart of the desert. The nearby emirate of Sharjah, with its captivating architecture and spectacular souks, was selected by UNESCO as the cultural capital of the Middle East.

Abu Dhabi - United Arab Emirates
Abu Dhabi is the second largest city of the United Arab Emirates and on first glance appears to be a striking modern wonder. However look past the futuristic skyscrapers, luxurious hotels and endless shopping malls and you’ll see that the cultures of an older society still remain. Before Abu Dhabi struck (black) gold with its rich oil reserves, it was at the centre of the pearl industry - you can see the traditional dhows used for both pearl diving and fishing along the harbour. The Heritage Village living museum offers a more in depth look at ancient cultures, while for an insight into today’s way of life, head to Khalifa Park, a popular recreation landmark for residents and visitors.

Khor al Fakkan - United Arab Emirates
Surrounded by the Hajar Mountains and flanked by pristine white-sand beaches is Khor Al Fakkan (meaning Creek of Two Jaws) on the Gulf of Oman. The town’s laid-back vibe offers more in the way of relaxation than excitement and bustle. The Corniche with its palm trees, gardens, restaurants and cafés makes a pleasant stroll. The 16th century Fujairah Fort is a photogenic gem with its towers and battlements framed against the mountains. Shark Island lying just offshore has several well-known dive sites such as Shark Drift, Coral Gardens and Anemone Gardens. (Don’t be alarmed though – ‘sharq’ is Arabic for ‘east’.) Having said that, snorkel amongst the multi-coloured coral and you may indeed be lucky enough to spot a black tip reef shark, among a rich array of other reef life, including rays, turtles, puffers and batfish. Though, on the beach, cover up, ladies and gents – this is a very conservative emirate, so Western-style bathing suits are not allowed.

Aqaba - Jordan
The Jordanian town of Aqaba nestles at the top of the Gulf of Aqaba which leads off the Red Sea. Boasting some excellent sandy beaches and one of the worlds best-preserved coral reefs, this is a popular resort with divers. But the main attraction of this area is the magnificent fortress city of Petra, buried by sand for more than 2,000 years until it was discovered in the desert near Aqaba in the 19th century and excavated in the 1950s. Originally built by Bedouin, the ‘rose red’ city of Petra is a genuine wonder of the world. Make a dramatic entrance by walking through the Siq (gorge) up to the imposing Treasury with its exquisite facade. Further on are temples, tombs and a huge theatre. Elsewhere, visit Wadi Rum, a vast silent landscape of sandstone mountains, desert and ancient bedrocks.

Port Said - Egypt
Take any cruise with Egypt on the schedule and you are guaranteed a fascinating time, for this North African country is the portal to wonders dating from the dawn of civilisation as you will discover on one of our Port Said cruises. Cruises to Port Said, at the head of the Suez Canal, take you one step closer to Cairo. Egypt’s largest city is a maelstrom of traffic, glorious mosques and palaces and bazaars, where shopping is excellent - as long as you bargain, haggle and then haggle again! Cairo also offers a fascinating selection of museums - the most famous being the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, which holds more than 100,000 relics and the Archaeological Museum, where you can gaze upon the face of Tutankhamun, the boy king. Just outside the city is one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world - the Pyramids at Giza. Their sheer size, scale and age will amaze you, as will the enigmatic glance of their nearby guardian – the 65 ft high Sphinx.

Suez - Egypt
Lying at the Red Sea end of the Suez Canal, the busy Egyptian port of Suez can also be your starting point for exciting trips to Cairo and the Pyramids at Giza. If your ship goes through the Canal, be out on deck throughout the transit, as it is one of the world’s most fascinating maritime experiences, creating the bizarre impression that you are sailing right through the dry heart of the desert. The present, 101-mile-long Canal took 15 years to build, was completed in 1869 and shaved a mere 7,000 miles off the journey from England to India. It is the second to cross the Isthmus of Suez – the first was constructed in the 5th century BC and was in use until the 8th century. Even if your ship is just calling at Suez, it is well worth strolling along the Corniche to watch the huge ships lined up to transit the Canal on their way to the other side of the world.

Istanbul - Turkey
Magical Istanbul - 3,000 years old, spanning two continents and a crucible of cultures where east meets west - is a key Turkish homeport for cruise ships, and even those ‘just visiting’ usually spend a night as this wonderful city offers so much to see and do. If this is your first visit, a tour of the main sights is a good introduction to the city’s treasures, which include the world-famous Blue Mosque and the equally impressive mosque of Suleyman the Magnificent, the vibrant old city, the Grand Bazaar (a warren of narrow streets containing more than 4,000 shops, stalls, restaurants and artisans’ workshops) and the Topkapi Palace, famed for its jewels but which also has spectacular gardens. Also worth seeing is the ancient Hippodrome - now an open-air museum. And a boat trip across the Bosphorus to view the minarets and grand palaces of the city’s skyline is an unforgettable experience.

Malta GC - Malta
The fortifications at Malta’s Grand Harbour speak volumes about her past, indeed her reputation for valour during the Second World war earned her the George Cross and there aren’t too many islands you can say that of!

Lisbon - Portugal
Some of the best views of the Portuguese capital come as your ship cruises along the Tagus River. You pass the Belem Tower and the impressive Monument to the Discoveries with its statue of Henry the Navigator before arriving at the Lisbon cruise terminal. Although small for a European capital, this city does sprawl a little so you would do best to concentrate on three districts - Baixa, Bairro Alto and Alfama, each with its own distinctive style, making Lisbon cruises a must see. Baixa has busy streets of inviting shops, cafés and restaurants while Alfama is the atmospheric old town with narrow cobblestone streets, medieval and Moorish-style buildings, wrought-iron balconies with trailing flowers and a mix of small shops and bars. Bairro Alto is another historic district with narrow streets and is a steep climb from Baixa so look out for the 100-year-old lift (Elevador do Carmo) near Rossio Square. With such a variety of destinations to explore, cruises to Lisbon bring to your holiday a balance of both modern and historical grounds.
