A certain girl is having her birthday next month and her lovely hubby is treating her with her favourite gift – a holiday!!! Yes I am setting sail again on the high seas of South-East Asia on a 15 day luxury cruise with Princess Cruises (and not on one of the boats shown above!)
Although I have travelled to many of the places in South-East Asia there are a couple that I have never visited before. In particular I’m looking forward to Langkawi and Penang in Malaysia, Cambodia and Brunei. Cruising is a get way to get a small snippet of a lot of different countries and destinations. Check out the latest cruise deals and prices.
Our 15 day itinerary includes:
The remaining 4 days will be spent at sea. However, now that I am a seasoned cruiser I know from past experience that there is plenty to do onboard during the at sea days. This particular cruise ship boasts 4 swimming pools, poolside cinemas, a tranquil onboard oasis area just for adults, day spa, gym and fitness area, 9 restaurants, coffee shop, internet cafe and shops. Am I making you jealous yet?
Each day on the cruise you arrive at a different port and you can either explore the town or city on your own or you can book day tours. From experience day tours are a great way of seeing some of the destinations and can include a lot of adventurous activities such as river and mangrove cruises, kayaking tours, hikes, pedicab tours and elephant treks or tours to temples, beaches, buddhas, markets and jungles. Then there is always the shopping in ports such as Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. These places are a shopaholic’s dream!
It will be interesting to compare this cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines as far as facilities, comfort, activities and food goes. I will definitely keep you all posted. Bon voyage!!
Have you been on a cruise or to any of these countries in South-East Asia?
