An elegant and iconic way to travel, enjoy passing the varied scenery of this vast and diverse region, from glittering cities to rural villages and swathes of untouched countryside, while experiencing the elegant dining and exciting entertainment on board. Indulge in the delicious on board cuisine, crafted by internationally renowned chefs, and sip a flute of champagne as you relax in the Observation Car. Attentive and discreet staff will see to your every whim, ensuring your journey is truly relaxing and all about you. You’ll also enjoy included off-train excursions – it truly is an amazing journey of discovery.
Arriving in Singapore you’ll have four nights to immerse yourself in this exciting and enigmatic city.
History buffs can seek out more of modern Singapore’s fascinating backstory in the many museums, where the exhibitions are as engaging as they are enlightening. The city is full of contrasts, so alongside the skyscrapers you will find incense-wreathed temples and relics of the Peranakan culture.
Following your stay you’ll embark the beautiful Queen Mary 2 for your voyage to Hong Kong. You’ll enjoy a further night on board the ship in Singapore before you set sail for charming Kota Kinabalu; home to the Mount Kinabalu World Heritage Site, lively markets and the striking waterfront Mosque. Here you can take an excursion to Sandakan where you could visit the tropical rainforest to watch playful orangutan’s swing through the jungle canopy – an iconic symbol of Borneo. You’ll enjoy an overnight stay on board the ship in Hong Kong at the end of your cruise. Heading to the top of Victoria Peak and watching the glittering city unfold before you is the perfect finale to your Eastern adventure.
