Day 1 – 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. 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.

Day 2 – At Sea
This is your invitation to a day of indulgence. Treat yourself to a luxurious spa experience. Stretch out by the pool with your favorite beverage. 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 3 – 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 4 – Langkawi , Malaysia
Langkawi, this beautiful string of emerald gems in the Andaman Sea. Beautiful beaches and blue lagoons are only the beginning of the attractions here. Myths and legends abound, entire islands in the archipelago vanish at high tide, and the beauty of the place could easily convince you to believe in magic.

Day 5 – Phuket, Thailand
In every direction lie beautiful islands, golden beaches, and fanciful limestone creations that rival even your most vivid imaginings of paradise.

Day 6 – Ko Yao Noi, Thailand
You’ve heard of Phang Nga Bay, with its famous karst formations and turquoise waters? Now imagine finding an island that perfectly frames that luscious view. The day is yours to spend as you wish.

Day 7 – At Sea
This is your invitation to a day of indulgence. Treat yourself to a luxurious spa experience. Stretch out by the pool with your favorite beverage. 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 8 – Pulau Pangkor , Malaysia
The name of the island comes from the Thai “Pang Ko,” which means Beautiful Island. The pirates are long gone but the views are still there, some from the many limestone cave temples that dot the area.

Day 9 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The effervescent city of Kuala Lumpur is a place where cultures and eras merge, where open-air stall meets mall and sophistication meets old world charm.

Day 10 – Malacca, Malaysia
The Portuguese, the Dutch, and the British variously occupied the city, leaving behind traces you can follow on the Jerak Warison Heritage Trail. Or if history of another kind is more to your taste, browse the antique shops along Jonker Street for teak furniture or tin coins dating back to the port’s early days when Chinese junks and spice ships plied the harbor.

Day 11 – 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. 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.
