Day-to-Day Itinerary

Day 1 - Hong Kong, China

Your ship docks right in the heart of Hong Kong’s harbor, putting you at the center of all manner of attractions. Watch sampans and junks glide through the waters of Aberdeen. Soak in the towering skyscrapers, peaceful green hillsides and world-famous Harbour from the top of Victoria Peak. Pursue bargains at Stanley Market. Have your fortune told at the Temple Street Night Market. Visit Lantau Island where a giant bronze Buddha holds court.

Day 2 - At Sea

Days 3-4 - Halong Bay, Vietnam

Halong Bay is our gateway to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam about 3.5 hours away but well worth the visit. Hanoi boasts a fascinating blend of East and West with lots of Chinese influences and French design. Highlights include the One Pillar Pagoda, the Temple of Literature, Thirty-Six Streets District in Old Town Hanoi, and Hoa Lo Prison, known widely as the “Hanoi Hilton.” Explore the mystical landscape of Halong Bay by charming traditional fishing junk.

Day 5-6 - Da Nang, Vietnam

We’ll stay here overnight to explore three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. My Son Sanctuary is Vietnam’s most important Champa ruin dating back to the 4th century. The imperial city of Hue is the spiritual heart of Vietnam and home to Nguyen Dynasty emperors. Admire the beauty of Hue’s bridges, canals, and lakes. And Hoi An is a tranquil 16th century trading town that has changed little over the centuries. Walk over the 400-year-old covered bridge, pausing to ponder the dog and monkey statues guarding either end.

Day 7 — At Sea

Day 8 — Nha Trang, Vietnam

Famed for its crystalline waters, this beautiful seaside city entices you with open air markets, scenic shorelines, and a look into the fascinating civilization of the Cham people, ancient rulers of Vietnam and Cambodia. The red-and-ochre Po Nagar Cham Towers are truly spectacular, perched on a hill overlooking the harbor.

Day 9 — Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Spend the day exploring the Cu Chi Tunnels where the Viet Cong based their insurgency. Delve into Vietnamese traditions in the villages of the Mekong Delta. Or stay close to your elegant ship enjoying the city’s French colonial flare, maybe bartering for conical hats and form-fitting ao dai at the market.

Day 10 — Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Spend the day exploring the Cu Chi Tunnels where the Viet Cong based their insurgency. Delve into Vietnamese traditions in the villages of the Mekong Delta. Or stay close to your elegant ship enjoying the city’s French colonial flare, maybe bartering for conical hats and form-fitting ao dai at the market.

Day 11-12 — At Sea

Day 13 — Bangkok, Thailand

Known for its beautiful ornate shrines and temples and vibrant street life, Bangkok is one of the top cities in the world to visit. Your ship is docked as close to Bangkok as any ship can get. Highlights include the Grand Palace & Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Arun, and the Floating Market. Extend your stay to include the overland Angkor Wat/Cambodia tour.
