SAIL FROM THE LAND OF FLYING CARPETS TO THE HOME OF SAMURAIS

 
A cruise to the Orient that will take you all the way to Japan will set sail on 31st March, 2018 with MSC Splendida
 
From Dubai to Yokohama: 29 days of relaxation, adventure, culinary delights and continuously changing cultural experiences.
 
From the opulent and extravagant desert skyscrapers in the United Arab Emirates to the century old traditions of Japan.
 
This will be more than just a cruise; it will be an MSC Grand Voyage aboard the sumptuous MSC Splendida. A month spent away from it all with our whole crew at your disposal to pamper you in every way.
 
Following a tour in the Persian Gulf that will take you the amazing cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the cruise will then go through the straight of Hormuz and on to Muscat in Oman.  There you will be able to admire its amazing waterfront clustered with traditional buildings just in front of the Great Mosque of Sultan Qabus.
 
Across the Arab Sea you will reach Colombo, on the unique island of Sri Lanka. Then on to the breathtaking island of Phuket, Thailand where we will ferry you to the most beautiful beaches in the world. Once there we can also take you to visit the Big Buddha on Khao Nakkerd Hill.
 
Malaysia is worth the three stops in Langkawi, Penang and Port Kelang. Langkawi will welcome you with the best beaches of the whole Peninsular and the Pulau Payar Marine Park.
You will love the fascinating colonial city of Penang with its shophouses and unusual temples, not to mention Batu Ferringhi beach.
Last but not least, you’ll love the modern city of Port Kelang, home to Petronas Towers, the Golden Triangle and the Batu Caves, which hide Malaysia’s most sacred Hindu shrine.
 
The Singapore skyline and its colonial district will be yours for a day before setting off again on to Ho Chi Minh city, in Vietnam, where we recommend you see the Cathedral and Jade Emperor Pagoda.
 
Hong Kong deserves two days and one night. The most expensive real estate in the world is a 6km-long strip of financial, commercial and entertainment districts overlooking Victoria Harbour.
You can get a bird’s-eye view from The Peak, on top of the green mountains just behind the state. Or explore the markets, restaurants and temples found along the bustling streets of the island.
 
Two days across the South China Sea will bring you to Shanghai, a leading business city that offers modern skyscrapers and traditional wooden houses along its canals.  You can also enjoy Shanghai from the top of the 88th floor of the Jinmao Tower.
 
Finally, Yokohama, Japan’s second most populous city and a major international port that borders with Tokyo on its northern side. However, you will find Yokohama to be far more open than the neighbouring capital. You will surely enjoy its open harbour front and low-rise skyline. Soak up the city’s international heritage and cosmopolitan flavour and enjoy the scattering of Western-style buildings, Chinese temples and world-class restaurants before flying back home.
 
Don’t miss the opportunity to discover wonders of this brand new itinerary.
