Port of Brunei

There's lots to see, from beautiful religious sites and palaces to lush rainforest reserves and beaches on this island nation. Brunei's cuisine is especially noteworthy, as restaurants serve fusions of Mediterranean, Indian, Chinese and Bornean flavors.

Brunei cruisers will dock in the Muara cruise port, and from there, a variety of guided tours and excursions are on offer.

Brunei is a Muslim nation where Sharia law is in place, so cruisers should dress conservatively when calling here and be sure to respect local customs and traditions. Sales of alcohol are banned in Brunei.
