Asia and Arabia highlights
Join us on a whistle-stop tour of this cultured cruise, so you can brace yourself for the spectacular...


Marina Bay, Singapore

In this melting-pot metropolis, you’ll take to the river for a tranquil cruise, where you can admire the city’s riverbank bars, street-food hawkers and spy towering landmarks such as the Marina Bay Sands hotel. Next, you’ll be whisked by coach to Old Singapore to see some of its most historic architecture, then view the golden-orb-topped Sultan Mosque before slipping into the exclusive Raffles Hotel bar for a Singapore Sling.

Vietnam Halong Bay

Halong Bay, Vietnam

Seabourn’s intimate, nimble ships mean our guests can slip into smaller ports that other groups might miss. Take Halong Bay, the serene teal waterway speckled with hulking limestone karsts, where you can transfer to a traditional wooden junk to explore up close or go sea kayaking around Cat Ba National Park. Seabourn vessels also glide up the Saigon River to arrive directly into Ho Chi Minh City, where you can visit the Chinese-style Thien Hau Pagoda and take in a colourful water puppet show.

Ankor Watt

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

You’ll enjoy expert guidance at the breathtaking Angkor Wat, where you’ll weave through an abundance of temples set among jungle foliage and have lunch on site. A traditional dance performance accompanies dinner back at your Seabourn-selected hotel, while down on the coast at Sihanoukville you’ll see a lesser-known side to peaceful Cambodia, from the white-fringed coastline to a local food market, and monks ready to chat at Wat Leu temple.

Thailand Wat Pho Bangkok

Wat Pho, Bangkok

Thanks to Seabourn’s ability to slip into marquee cities and hidden harbours, Thailand opens up for its guests, with plenty beyond the typical entry points. You can go bartering with the ship’s executive chef at local markets, and let your hair down at a ‘Caviar in the Surf’ beach party on sleepy Ko Kood, where you’ll pick up cooling Champagne and caviar on ice from a surfboard bar in the shallows.

Road to Arabia - Karnak Temple

Karnak Temple, Egypt

The road to Arabia
If you love seeing and experiencing a lot on your travels, you’ll relish the chance to visit the headline sights of Egypt, Israel and Jordan ‒ even journeying along the Suez Canal ‒ en route to glamorous Dubai. In Jordan, you’ll dock in the sleepy fishing village of Aqaba, then venture inland, bypassing desert gorges and valleys to reach the rose-gold sandstone city of Petra. In Israel, the ancient walled city of Jerusalem, its Wailing Wall and mountainside site of Gethsemane bring to life some of humanity’s oldest stories.
