October 25 - Hong Kong, China
A spectacular, serrated skyline of soaring towers and neon lights, Hong Kong is a vibrant, immersive metropolis and cultural hub. Dramatic harbor-front light shows transform the waterfront’s gleaming buildings into a colorful canvas – best seen from the ship, when the Symphony of Lights blares into life each evening. Victoria Peak is the highest point and it offers staggering views down over the city and harbor. The Peak Tram funicular can ferry you to the top, to the vantage point which was historically adored by the rich for the cooler air found here, away from the busy bustle of the city streets. Many elaborate temples add a tranquil element to Hong Kong’s whirr, and Tin Hau temple has a surprisingly urban location, considering its dedication to the Goddess of the Sea.

October 27 - Ha Long Bay, Vietnam
8 AM to 11 PM
The extraordinary, mossy limestone mountains that rear from the waters of Ha Long Bay form one of the most spectacular natural landscapes on the planet. At least 1,600 green islands rise over a flotilla of strung-together fishing boats and floating villages. Spectacular at any time, sunset bathes the remarkable limestone formations in warm, honey-colored light, adding an extra layer to the seascape's heart-stirring beauty. Dau Go Cave and Sung Sot Caves are adorned with rows of spectacular stalactites, descending like dragon teeth from above.
October 28 - Cruising International Waters
October 29 - Da Nang, Vietnam
7 AM to 7 PM
Da Nang packs a punch that other puts other Vietnamese cities in the shade. The beaches are simply stunning - white sand that runs on for miles, lapped by sapphire seas and punctuated by tall coconut trees. The mountains are stunning – vast swathes of emerald green poking out of the top of the few skyscrapers the city has. And the temples are vast and plentiful. From Lady Buddha – an 18th century shrine and statue that guards over the fishermen – to the Marble Mountains, Da Nang is a sublime mixture of secret lagoons, spiritual sites and Vietnamese energy. . If you are looking for a Vietnamese city that offers both connection and authenticity, you will find it in Da Nang.
October 30 - Cruising International Waters
October 31 - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2 overnights)
Arrive 7 AM
A chaotic, enchanting swirl of sensory stimulation - Ho Chi Minh City is a place of incense-infused temples, colonial architecture, warm people and delicious street food. Formerly known as Saigon, the city was affectionately-labelled the Pearl of the Orient by the French. Afternoons here drift by lazily on the gentle chaos of the River Saigon, as taxi boats and motor canoes flit up and down, and parks fill out with locals playing jianzi, kicking shuttlecocks back and forth. Taste the street food to get under Ho Chi Minh City's skin, with humble restaurants serving up rich flavors - from the Vietnamese take on the baguette, a banh mi sandwich - to the local staple of pho, a delicious noodle soup. Journey out to learn more of the Vietnam War at the Remnants Museum and Cu Chi tunnels. Offering a vivid glimpse of conditions, and the ingenuity and resilience of the soldiers, you'll learn of the guerrilla war campaign raged from within this claustrophobic, 70-mile network of war tunnels.

Arrive 8 AM
Bangkok is one of the world's most fascinating cities, and a place to plunge right in at the deep end. One second you can be dodging whizzing hordes of mopeds, the next, absorbed into the blissful tranquillity of a silent temple courtyard. Part of Bangkok's allure is that Iife is well and truly played out on its streets. Stalls of flowers, spices and silk fabrics fill bustling alleyways with color and exotic fragrances. One of the country's most sacred sites - the Temple of the Emerald Buddha - rises in a river bend, while the beautiful Grand Palace, and the skyscraper-like tower of the colorful Wat Arun temple, also watch out over the water. Journey north to Ayutthaya, where you can see the extraordinary ruins of the former capital Kingdom of Siam, which was destroyed in 1350.

Singapore is a spectacular, futuristic vision of utopian city life. A city designed with space to breathe, with gorgeous outdoor parks, massive indoor greenhouses and beautiful recreational spaces. Once a quiet fishing village, now a glistening island city. It is almost intimidatingly clean - and the hyper-efficient public transport system whips residents and visitors across the city's neighborhoods in a heartbeat. Glorious fountains and audacious skyscrapers loom up - nodding to traditional feng shui beliefs - and putting on dazzling illuminated displays after dark. The lush green botanical gardens are a spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site, covering 52 hectares and decorated with impressive colorful orchids. Or breathe in more of the freshest air by heading up to wander the canopy strung bridges of MacRitchie Reservoir Park. Jaunt between Little India and the atmospheric Chinatown in minutes, where beautiful temples - like the Chinese Thian Hock Keng Temple and Hindu Sri Mariamman Temple add rich cultural intrigue. Singapore's cuisine is a mouthwatering fusion of its Indian, Chinese, Indonesian, and Malay influences, taking and enhancing the best of each. Enjoy dishes in towering restaurants, or toast the glowing skyline with the city's eponymous gin-soaked cocktail - a Singapore Sling.
