Cruises to Asia

On the Pacific Ocean, coastal Asia inspires a spectrum of adjectives: ancient, futuristic, sacred, industrial, peaceful, riotous, and breathtaking. A trip through East Asia usually includes port stops in the busy urban centers of China, Japan, and South Korea. Southeast Asia cruises, traditionally sailing between Singapore and Hong Kong, provide opportunities for ecotourism and beach time in Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

We travelled on legend with a family of 4 kids aged 6 to 19. We choose the ship entirely for the ports of call/ summer vacation timing rather than for cruise company or ship type. Overall we have had a good holiday. All the staff have been excellent ... Read more
