DAY 1 | 15 Mar
Itinerary Desktop 1.jpg
Delhi - Hotel Stay

Welcome to Delhi, India’s sprawling capital formed by several ancient cities melding together through the centuries. Here you’ll find UNESCO world heritage sites sitting comfortably alongside innovative modern architecture like the florally inspired curves of the Lotus Temple. Watch the city’s green and yellow auto-rickshaws weave through streets packed with people, animals and anything else besides, and sample the Mughlai cuisine, so delicious that it’s exported to the world. 

DAY 2 | 16 Mar
Itinerary Desktop 2.jpg
Delhi - Hotel Stay

Begin your Golden Triangle discovery in Old Delhi where you’ll enjoy a sightseeing tour of Raj Ghat, the memorial to Mahatma Gandhi, and the Jama Masjid mosque, built by the same Mughal emperor that commissioned the Taj Mahal. You’ll also see the Red Fort, the site of many battles over the centuries, and where the Indian prime minister makes an annual Independence Day speech to the nation. This martial structure looks as robust and imposing today as when it was built.

DAY 3 | 17 Mar
Itinerary Desktop 3.jpg
Agra - Hotel Stay

Prepare yourself for the one of the greatest love letters in the world – the Taj Mahal. Constructed by 20,000 artisans over a twenty-year period, this mausoleum was dedicated to Emperor Shah Jahan’s favourite wife, who died in childbirth. Made of polished white marble and inlaid with a king’s ransom of jewels, this is one of the world’s most recognisable buildings.

DAY 4 | 18 Mar
Itinerary Desktop 4.jpg
Jaipur - Hotel Stay

On the way to Jaipur you’ll stop off at Fatehpur Sikri, a deserted 16th century red sandstone city, the gateway of which is its famed domed archway, the Buland Darwaza. At the Rajasthan capital of Jaipur, known as the Pink City because of the colour scheme of many of its many historic buildings, you’ll discover well-preserved architectural wonders that illustrate the vast wealth and power of the rajas that once ruled this enthralling corner of India.

DAY 5 | 19 Mar
Itinerary Desktop 5.jpg
Jaipur - Hotel Stay

It’s not surprising that Jaipur regularly ranks among the top destinations in India. A must-see is the Hawa Mahal, or ‘Palace of Winds’, a five-storey building festooned with small enclosed balconies. Jaipur is also home to the sweeping Amber Fort which spans a hilltop overlooking the tranquil Maota Lake. Jantar Mantar, an astronomical observatory built in the 18th century, features the world’s largest stone sundial.

DAY 6 | 20 Mar
Itinerary Desktop 6.jpg
Delhi - Hotel Stay

Return to Delhi before your flight to Hong Kong tomorrow to board Silver Muse for your cruise. Sample spice-infused curries, get lost down switchback alleyways and haggle for a deal in one of its many bazaars. If you want to shop for an original gift, head to Baba Kharak Singh Marg where you can find a variety of traditional Indian craftsmanship in one of its emporiums. Whatever you do in this frenetic capital, it is certainly going to be unique.

DAY 7 | 21 Mar
RCCL - Voyager HKG-HKG Aug 2019 - HKG 1.jpg

DAY 13 | 27 Mar

Shanghai

Art Deco buildings squeeze between towering structures in fast-paced Shanghai. This unique cosmopolitan metropolis is a city of contrasts. You’ll find yourself surrounded by cool modern architecture one moment, before stumbling upon old Jewish synagogues and rickety street stalls the next. As night falls and the street lights come on, the city’s restaurants wake up to offer enticing cuisine.

DAY 16 | 30 Mar

Tianjin (Beijing)

Beijing is the beating heart of Chinese politics, culture and economic development.

DAY 17 | 31 Mar
Itinerary Desktop 15.jpg
Tianjin (Beijing)

During your visit to Beijing, you could visit the magnificent Great Wall of China. China’s greatest landmark weaves majestically between the East and West of China, through dry and dusty deserts and lush mountains, carrying with it a tragic, yet triumphant history that spans more than 2,000 years.

DAY 18 - 19 | 1 - 2 Apr
Itinerary Desktop 16.jpg
At Sea

Dining on board Silver Muse is in a class of its own. Enjoy a Japanese lunch of sushi and sashimi at Kaiseki; savour Asian fusion dishes at Indochine where it’s not uncommon to find rock lobster and aloo palak on the menu; and head to La Terrazza to finish your evening off with tiramisu, panna cotta or a delicious cheese board.

DAY 20 | 3 Apr

Hiroshima

Hiroshima is a thriving, bustling city surrounded by natural beauty. The Chugoku Mountains surrounds the city with rivers, valleys, plains and basins landscaping the area; whilst The Peace Memorial Park and Museum recall the city's tragic past.
