Encapsulating countless countries, cultures, and customs, Asia overflows with possibility for the intrepid traveler. This also means that traveling in Asia can pretty much mean anything, with an abundance of differing and wholly unique places to visit. This makes cruising a great option, especially if you want to check multiple locations off of your itinerary during your venture out east. With Dunhill Travel Deals, finding the best deals for your next Asia cruise getaway takes only a simple search. From there, the possibilities are endless. Here are some popular departure points and some great cruises to go with them.
Tokyo — Crystal Cruises 22-Night Alaska & The Aleutian Islands Cruise
Explore the wonders of Tokyo — and really, do make sure you give yourself enough time to explore Japan — before boarding the Crystal Symphony, a ship known for its excellent service and mouth-watering dining options. Make your way through Russia, the Gulf of Alaska, and Vancouver before arriving to your final destination of San Francisco. This is an excellent option for anyone who wants to take a 22-night scenic route back from their trip to Tokyo — a relaxing and vacation-extending alternative to being crammed on an airplane for 12-plus hours.
Singapore — Oceania Cruises 18-Night Far East Cruise
Singapore is filled with natural wonders, sporting an abundance of green spaces — and a wonderful zoo — that sight-seekers and explorers should really love. Give yourself a few days there, and delight in the local cooking, a fusion of Asian flavors that reflects the melting pot nature of this vibrant city. Food can be a theme — the eats aboard the Oceania Nautica is considered by many to be some of the best on a cruise ship. Malaysia, Thailand, and the coast of India are all on the itinerary for this cruise, which wraps up its voyage in glamorous Dubai.
Hong Kong — Regent Seven Seas Cruises 12-Night Southeast Asia Cruise
Hop aboard either the Seven Seas Voyager or the Seven Seas Navigator on this 12-night cruise through some of Southeast Asia’s most exciting cities. Start in Hong Kong, then make stops in Taiwan and Japan before circling back to Shanghai. Foodies should have a lot to be happy with on this cruise. The food on either ship is excellent, and a stop in Kobe offers travelers the exciting opportunity to try the world famous farm-raised beef the Japanese city is known for.
Manila — Silversea Cruises 8-Night Far East Cruise
A relatively new addition to the list of Asian cruise departure points, Manila is the lively capital of the Philippines. Before hopping aboard the gorgeous Silver Shadow and setting sail on this voyage — which takes travelers on a journey to two of Southeast Asia’s most exciting port cities, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and Bangkok in Thailand — be sure to check out local sights like Fort Santiago and eat Filipino favorites, like Buko Pie and Max’s Fried Chicken.
