Dubai to Singapore

16 days / 15 nights - Star Pride Ship

Energy and tranquility.. In India, Thailand, and Malaysia, striking contrast is the status quo. Absorb the kaleidoscopic vibe of Mumbai, watch the cantilevered Chinese fishing nets at work in Cochin,  discover Phuket, Phang Nga Ba and Penang, with its strange juxtaposition of colonial flavor, snake temples, and tamarind-shaded beaches.

Day 1 – Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Few cities in the world can claim such meteoric growth as Dubai, or to have been as blessed with good fortune.. Today, Dubai is an extravagant city where everything strives to be the biggest or the best. The tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa. The largest artificial islands on earth. The world’s only indoor ski resort. All are worth seeing, but don’t skip Dubai’s past.

Day 2 – 4 – At Sea
This is your invitation to a day of indulgence. Treat yourself to a luxurious spa experience. Dine in sumptuous casual style, or wrap yourself in that comfy waffle-weave robe and enjoy your meal in the privacy of your beautiful stateroom. Your delight is our single priority for your day at sea.

Day 5 – Mumbai, India
With more than 18 million people, Mumbai will soon have a greater population than the entire continent of Australia. Take a ferry to the Elephanta Caves and study the stone relief of the god Shiva as Nataraja, performing his cosmic dance with legs gone missing somewhere over the centuries.

Day 6 – At Sea
This is your invitation to a day of indulgence. Treat yourself to a luxurious spa experience. Dine in sumptuous casual style, or wrap yourself in that comfy waffle-weave robe and enjoy your meal in the privacy of your beautiful stateroom. Your delight is our single priority for your day at sea.

Day 7 – Mangalore, India
Two rivers wrap around Mangalore, leaving a narrow strip of land separating most of the city from the Arabian Sea—a strip that is home to the city’s famed beaches.

Day 8 – Cochin, India
Welcome to the “Queen of the Arabian Sea,” founded in 1341. Arabs and Chinese soon came in search of spices, followed by the Portuguese, who made this the first European settlement in India. You can still see the influences of these historical trading partners throughout the city.

Day 9-12  – At Sea
This is your invitation to a day of indulgence. Treat yourself to a luxurious spa experience. Dine in sumptuous casual style, or wrap yourself in that comfy waffle-weave robe and enjoy your meal in the privacy of your beautiful stateroom. Your delight is our single priority for your day at sea.

Day 13 – Phuket, Thailand
In every direction lie beautiful islands, golden beaches, and fanciful limestone creations that rival even your most vivid imaginings of paradise. There’s really no way to go wrong whether you spend the day snorkeling in some of the clearest waters on the planet.

Day 14 – Penang, Malaysia
The “Pearl of the Orient” is like no other place in Malaysia, or in Asia for that matter. The cuisine is a similar mishmash of Chinese, Nyonya, Malay, Indian, and Thai, which has led to Penang becoming something of a culinary mecca.

Day 15  – At Sea
This is your invitation to a day of indulgence. Treat yourself to a luxurious spa experience. Dine in sumptuous casual style, or wrap yourself in that comfy waffle-weave robe and enjoy your meal in the privacy of your beautiful stateroom. Your delight is our single priority for your day at sea.

Day 16 – Singapore
While the island has been the site of a town since at least the 3rd century, modern Singapore was founded by Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819. His influence remains even among the skyscrapers and shopping. As the sun goes down, toast the man with a plan over a Singapore Sling at the Raffles Hotel, a favorite hangout of writers including Rudyard Kipling, Ernest Hemingway, and Alfred Hitchcock.
