Historic and culturally rich, Asia is an exceptional destination for an exploration cruise, with the Spice Islands of Indonesia, Borneo and islands off Japan all waiting to be discovered.
Exploration cruises in Asia allow you to discover the islands and archipelagos of South East Asia. The exotic islands of Indonesia have long exerted a pull over people and exploring them on a cruise is an exciting way to uncover hidden gems such as Bali and Komodo. Or, head north to discover the wildlife of Borneo, taking in the cultural gems of Sabah, Sarawak or the unique nature of Kalimantan's jungles, home to proboscis monkeys and, of course, orangutans.

Japan has a long and fascinating coastline, peppered with ancient shrines, buzzing cities and almost 7,000 islands. Take in the best of its off-the-beaten-track gems, such as subtropical Okinawa, then head across the sea to take in the urban delights of South Korea. Or, perhaps weigh anchor and enter the Yangtze River Delta for a cultural expedition that gets right to the heart of China.
These are just a handful of the options available though. You can also tailor-make your exploration cruise in Asia by adding a city stay, beach holiday or other excursion to your itinerary before or after you sail; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
