Day 3 - Embark Anthem of the Seas in Dubai

Dubai, one of the seven territories that make up the United Arab Emirates, is a sprawling multicultural city that has grown enormously in recent decades. Here, you'll find everything you could possibly ask for in a modern metropolis: world-class shopping, architectural triumphs and luxurious ways to dine and relax. Cruise to Dubai and stroll along the Dubai Marina waterfront past the many large yachts and futuristic high-rises. Relax on the sandy beach at Kite Beach or Sunset Beach, overlooking the iconic sail-shaped hotel Burj Al Arab. Explore the charming Souq Madinat Jumeirah village, with its network of canals that pass Arabian-style hotels and lush gardens. Then, check out the Al Fahidi historical neighborhood and its distinctive sand-colored traditional buildings.

Then, check out the Al Fahidi historical neighborhood and its distinctive sand-colored traditional buildings.

Day 5 - Muscat

In Muscat, Oman's attractive capital, you'll find a city steeped in the medieval heritage of the Middle East. Stroll along the picturesque waterfront Mutrah Corniche, with the brilliant blue sea on one side, eastern-style white buildings lining the street on the other and the arid Hajar mountains in the background. Stop at the Mutrah souq, a traditional Arab market (closed in the afternoon) where you can buy Omani and Indian artefacts and antiques. Don't miss the stately Grand Mosque – the immense Persian carpet in the main prayer hall took a whole four years to weave. Cruise to Muscat and check out the Al Alam Palace with its blue and gold facade, and see the sand-coloured 16th-century Portuguese forts nearby.

Day 10 - Cochin

Kerala is the talk of the town when it comes to travel in India, and the city of Cochin gives you a glimpse into why people love the state so much. Walk the streets of Cochin Fort — here, you'll find the St. Francis Church, India's oldest colonial-built place of worship, as well as bustling Princess Street, with its colorful architecture displaying Dutch, Portuguese and British influence. See the Chinese fishing nets at the bay, purportedly brought here in the 14th century by emissaries of emperor Kublai Khan. Cruise to Cochin and explore the ornate Paradesi Synagogue and learn more about Kerala's historic Jewish community, or feast on a paratha flatbread at a local eatery.

Day 14 - Phuket

The island of Phuket (pronounced 'Poo-ket') is often called the Pearl of Thailand – and once you set foot on pristine beaches and see its crystalline blue water, you'll understand why. Cruise to Phuket, Thailand and start your day by diving right in – literally – at Kata Noi Beach, a smaller, more secluded spot where you can soak in the sun and sand and unwind. Then, head to the nearby Karon Viewpoint for unparalleled views of the Andaman Sea and the area's lush mountainous landscape. In town, see the Big Buddha of Phuket – the white marble likeness of the holy figure stands 45 metres tall. Then, see the elaborate temple of Wat Chalong and its Grand Pagoda, where it's believed a splinter of bone from the Buddha himself resides.

Day 15 - Penang

An island state just off the coast of northwest Malaysia, Penang is rich in diverse cultural influences thanks to its history as a trading centre between India, China, Britain and the Middle East. Head to historic George Town, the island's capital city, where bicycles and trishaws (three-wheeled, pedal-powered vehicles) dart along narrow streets lined with mural-adorned buildings and varied architecture. Cruise to Penang to step into the oldest Anglican church in Southeast Asia at St George's, or check out the Kapitan Keling Mosque. Then, take the tram up to the cooler, minty-fresh air of Penang Hill – walk through the bird sanctuary or one of the nature trails, and take in views of the city below and the mountains in the distance.

Day 16 - Singapore

Singapore is small in size but big on excitement. Discover the multicultural medley of this city-state through its neighbourhoods: Check out the statue-adorned temples of Little India and the colourful pagodas of Chinatown. Cruise to Singapore and explore the city's Malay section on the Kampong Glam Heritage Trail, which will take you past Arabic-influenced mansions and the gold-dome-topped Masjid Sultan mosque. Experience the contrast between the lush rainforest flora of the Singapore Botanic Garden and the high-tech 'supertrees' and biodomes of Gardens by the Bay. Complete your Singapore adventure with a panorama from the rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands or a Singapore Sling cocktail at the historical Raffles Hotel.

Kerri is the best at booking!

Kerri was so lovely & friendly & helpful in booking my holiday to South Africa & Mauritius. It’s a great website with so many destinations & good that solo prices can be found, but a shame that they are always so much more!
