43 Night Cruise sailing from Hong Kong to Tilbury aboard Columbus.

Start your voyage in the heart of Hong Kong enjoying the bustling streets and the lush mountain tops which overlook the city and port. Vietnam will awake your senses as you explore Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City still referred to as Saigon. The Gulf of Thailand welcomes you with stops in Cambodia and Bangkok, preparing you for the cultural melting pots of Singapore and Malaysia. Sri Lanka and India will assault your senses with bright colours, beguiling histories and spice filled lands.

After leaving the vibrant and chaotic cities of Cochin and Mumbai you’ll arrive in the historically magnificent Luxor before discovering the ‘lost city’ of Petra in Jordan and transiting the Suez Canal to Haifa for the Holy Land of Jerusalem. Piraeus for Athens and Gibraltar are your final stepping stones back to London Tilbury where your adventures end in beautiful British springtime.

Highlights of this cruise:

Hong Kong
The city boasts a vibrant cultural scene that features the influences of its Chinese roots and colonial connections. Take the tram up to Victoria Peak where you’ll get a spectacular 360-degree view of the island. Board one of Hong Kong’s fabled sampan boats for a cruise through the bustling harbour. In Kowloon see the Chi Lin Nunnery, Nan Lian Garden and bustling Nathan Road.

Phu My
Still commonly referred to as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City has driven the country forward with its pulsating energy. Wander through timeless alleys to incense-infused temples before catching up with the present in designer malls. The real beauty is this city’s blend of two worlds into one thrilling, seething mass. A host of exhilarating tours get you way off-the-beaten track.

Singapore
Steeped in its colonial past, the Lion City of Sir Stamford Raffles is one of the most exciting cities in the East and provides an opportunity to visit the alleyways of Chinatown, a Hindu Temple, Sentosa Island, the world renowned botanical gardens, Jurong Bird Park and Orchard Road. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a Singapore Sling at the famous Raffles Hotel.

Penang
The ‘jewel in the crown’ of Malaysia, Penang is linked to the mainland by one of the longest bridges in the world. George Town, the best-preserved city in Southeast Asia, boasts a European-style esplanade and a wealth of temples, mosques and Chinese clan houses. This paradise island has no shortage of cultural sights and natural scenery.

Cochin
Beautifully situated in Kerala, Cochin has been drawing traders and explorers to its shores for over 600 years. If you’re not tempted by an overland excursion to Delhi or Agra and the Taj Mahal, take in some of Cochin’s fascinating cultural legacy, which includes a synagogue, churches, mosques, temples and the crumbling remains of the British Raj. Don’t miss the Mattancherry Palace or a stroll along the lovely beach, scattered with unique Chinese fishing nets.

Safaga
Reached across the Eastern Desert from Safaga, Luxor, in the celebrated Valley of the Kings, is often called the world’s greatest open-air museum. Nothing in the world compares to the scale and grandeur of the ancient monuments.

Athens
Piraeus is the gateway to Athens, the birthplace of democracy and a cradle of western civilisation. In this city of Plato and Socrates, visit the Acropolis with its mighty Parthenon, the temple of the Greek goddess Athena. Below the Acropolis lies the Theatre of Dionysos, the Temple of Olympian Zeus and the honeycomb of streets that make up the Plaka district of shops and tavernas. In the heart of the city there’s the National Archaeological Museum, the Olympic Stadium used for the first modern Games in 1896, the Parliament building and Syntagma Square.

Gibraltar
Famously contested, Gibraltar is a renowned headland in the Mediterranean Sea.
In ancient times known as the Pillars of Hercules with it’s African counterpart, Mt Abyla, the Rock has remained under British rule for the last 300 years, despite being connected to Spain.
A towering 1400 ft outcrop that separates the Mediterranean from the Atlantic, Gibraltar was named Jebel al-Tarik by the Moorish General Tarik who landed there in 711 AD.
See the famous Barbary apes that occupy the island as well as St Michael’s Cave and the Siege Tunnels or admire the view to Africa from a cable car.
