About

Recommended for:
Ocean cruise

With butler-served suites, open cocktail bars and tasting-menu fine dining, this is the finest in all-inclusive luxury. Think caviar and champagne delivered to your room. And, the ship’s route is just as enticing. After Taiwan’s historic ports and megacities, you’ll take in the colonial intrigue of Manila along with the beach-and-jungle idyll of the Philippines’ Coron and Cambodia’s Sihanoukville. In between, you’ll have three days to soak up Saigon’s European grace, along with its nearby delta charm and guerrilla tunnels. Either side, you’ll be treated to luxury stays in both Hong Kong and Bangkok, contrasting their heritage and modernity on full private tours, lunches and cruises.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Depart UK

After making the most of your complimentary airport lounge, board your direct overnight flight to Hong Kong.

Days 2-4
Hong Kong

On arrival, a private driver will bring you to your luxury accommodation, its elegant rooms, pool deck and fine restaurants set on Victoria Harbour. After a day to relax, you’ll be treated to a pair of full-day tours. The first will focus on Hong Kong’s highlights, from antique streets and incense-cloaked temples to historic markets and, for a city-wide overlook, the world’s steepest funicular. You’ll even enjoy a harbour cruise and a dumpling lunch. The next day you’ll be brought on the world’s longest suspension bridge to Lantau Island’s lush-green valleys and fishing villages. You’ll take it all in with cable-car rides, visits to monasteries and an included Chinese vegetarian lunch.

Stay: Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel, Hong Kong (Deluxe)

Meals: B L

Days 5-6
At Sea

Today, a private transfer will see you aboard your luxury ship. With one of the highest space- and staff-to-guest ratios, it’s a superlative affair, with its all-suite accommodation attended by a personal butler service. Indeed, from your cabin to the open bars and fine-dining restaurants, it’s an all-inclusive delight. Pair mixologist cocktails and free-flowing champagne with the likes of pool-side grills, open-kitchen sushi and seafood fine dining. Don’t also miss out on the tapas jazz bar and Far Eastern delicacies, while the Napoli pizzeria and the six-course French showpiece offer further highlights.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 7
Keelung, Taiwan

You’ll make land in Taiwan with Keelung. It’s the perfect introduction – a bustling port famous for its seafood and glowing night market. Its historic, lantern-lit temples are special favourites. Alternatively, the capital Taipei is just a short hop away. Here, its rich history is memorialised by everything from Taoist temples and Japanese-era mansions to merchant villas and the fantastic National Palace Museum. The street-food scene is also one of the finest in the world, all watched over by Taipei 101 – the former world’s highest tower.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 8
Kaohsiung

Kaohsiung, Taiwan’s second city, is one of the world’s great ports. However, look beyond its industry and you’ll discover a modern city of wide boulevards and café culture, interspersed with historic temples and art districts. There’s even the Urban Spotlight – a 150-metre-long light installation. For many, though, their time in Kaohsiung is best enjoyed relaxing on the tree-clad riverside, sipping a local craft coffee.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 9
At Sea

With a day at sea, you’ll have some time to familiarise yourself with the ship’s facilities. The open-bar indulgences range from pianist-accompanied delights and cocktail lounges to whisky-and-cigar lounges. There’s even an onboard casino.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 10
Manila, Philippines

Arriving into the Philippines and its capital, you’ll be able to uncover its rich heritage. Manila was founded in 1571 by Spanish conquistador Miguel López de Legazpi, something remembered by the Baroque San Augustin Church and the storied citadel of Fort Santiago. The international intrigue continues with soulful Chinese and American cemeteries, along with a thriving arts scene. Excursions will also bring you out to forest-clad falls and remote, carpeted islands.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 11
Coron

As one of the few cruises to visit Coron, you’re in for a real highlight. Its dramatic rock protrusions are beset by emerald-green seas and glorious sweeps of sand, making it an ideal destination for both sun worshippers and scuba divers. Indeed, it’s perfect for every pace, whether you want to relax on pristine beaches or trek into the jungle. There are also plenty of fishing-village idylls.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Days 12-13
At Sea

You’ll have two days at sea to unwind with the spa treatments, beauty salon and pool deck. Of course, if you’d rather stay active, there’s the state-of-the-art equipment of the gym, where you can enjoy complimentary aerobics, yoga, Pilates and circuit training.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Days 14-16
Ho Chi Minh City

You’ll have three days in Saigon, and with good reason. Broad colonial boulevards lead between stucco villas, city halls and opera houses, charting its colonial past, while everything from tranquil parks and Chinese temples to bustling markets and Vietnamese coffee houses site you firmly in the country’s largest city. The Beaux-Arts Independence Palace is a special highlight, where the Vietnam War ended with a North Vietnamese tank crashing through its gates. Optional excursions can also bring you out to guerrilla tunnels and the Mekong Delta, where floating villages dot a verdure-clad maze of waterways.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 17
At Sea

Your final day at sea gives you a last chance to shop in the boutique, play a hand at the card room or enjoy a performance at the theatre. Expect the likes of classical soloists and even full-scale productions throughout your cruise. The enrichment lectures are particularly good.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 18
Sihanoukville, Cambodia

Sihanoukville’s white sands, tropical islands and mangrove jungles make it something of a beach paradise. Perhaps take in its village charm with a tuk-tuk tour, or get away to a pagoda in the forest. And, once you’ve relaxed on the beach, perhaps head into its national park for a spot of kayaking or hiking.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Days 19-20
Bangkok, Thailand

You’ll end in Bangkok, with a private transfer seeing you to your luxury hotel, its spa facilities and chic bars set on the river. While you’ll have some time to explore Bangkok’s vibrant markets and street-food delights, we’ve also included a full-day private tour the next day. You’ll focus on its impossibly gilded Grand Palace, along with three of Thailand’s great temples. Expect kingly residences and giant buddhas carved from a single jade stone. Then, in the afternoon, you’ll be brought along the city’s canal-way maze, showcasing everything from long-tail boats to family homes and temples.

Meals: B

Day 21
Depart for UK

After a final breakfast, a private driver will see you to the airport for your day flight home.
