Your Itinerary

The Aurora is a mid-sized, family favourite and a really great choice for a classic cruise holiday. Think fun activities, entertaining evenings, luxurious dining, and the chance to unwind. At Aurora’s heart lies a Lalique-inspired waterfall, which forms the atrium’s centrepiece. There’s high-quality entertainment aplenty with regular live music, comedy and shows, cinema screenings, cabaret and dancing. Dining is a delight as Aurora has a wide and varied selection of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars to suit every taste. Children from toddlers to teens can enjoy their own space with dedicated areas and activities, which are supervised by qualified staff throughout the day and well into the night.

Welcome to Singapore, where sacred Buddhist and Hindu temples sit in the shadows of sleek, futuristic architecture and the world-renowned street food offers a spectrum of flavours to tantalise every palate. Don’t forget to try the chilli crab, its national dish. It’s also home to the famous colonial-style Raffles Hotel, where the Singapore Sling cocktail was invented, as well as the spectacular Gardens By The Bay. It’s truly a city that never fails to impress.

Port Klang is close to the tall skyscrapers and large shopping malls of Kuala Lumpur. The city of Kuala Lumpur has a fantastic range of sightseeing opportunities. Visit the National Museum showcasing traditional Malay architecture or stop at the National Mosque, which embodies a contemporary expression of traditional Islamic art, calligraphy and ornamentation. Located adjacent to the National Mosque is the ‘must see’ impressive Old Railway Station, one of the city’s most photographed landmarks.

Although the miles of golden sandy beaches lure visitors to Penang, take time to ride a trishaw to George Town where you can shop for exquisite batiks and visit the Khoo Wall, with its pillars and roof elaborately decorated with intricate carvings by master craftsmen from China. Visit Kek Lok Si, reputed to be the largest and most beautiful Buddhist temple complex in Southeast Asia.

Sri Lanka conjures up the exotic and the mysterious, and here you could choose from a diverse range of activities, from exploring the temples of the Sinhalese Kingdom or taking a guided tour of an Elephant orphanage. You could also take look at the Pettah Bazaar where you can buy almost anything and everything!

Dubai is known as an adult’s playground, with an ever-growing list of dazzling attractions to complement its year-round sunshine and swathes of golden beaches. Head to the top of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and see the carefully choreographed dancing fountains below. They’re beautifully lit in the evenings. There’s also maze-like souks wreathed in the aroma of spices, thrilling waterparks and desert safaris in the rolling dunes beyond the city.

Muscat is one of the Middle East’s oldest cities and is filled with fascinating history, charm and natural beauty. Wandering through Muscat you can enjoy rare glimpses of the rich and opulent cultural heritage of the land. For tourists that come from all over the world, Muscat holds a special charm with its grand forts, parks and museums all of which help to understand the history of Oman.

Suez is located in north-eastern Egypt. Historically, Suez has been a pathwayfor Muslim pilgrims travelling to and from Mecca. Suez Canal opened in 1896 and in 1956 drew the world’s attention following the Suez Crisis. Travel west from the port to Cairo - formerly the Egyptian capital of Memphis - gateway to the The Sphinx and Pyramids of Giza.

Malta is a Mediterranean island of great historical importance influenced by many great empires. The capital fortress city of Valletta, described as an open air museum, is mainly Baroque in character having been built in the 16th century by the Order of St John of Jerusalem. It offers some of Europe’s finest palaces, churches, and works of art. Valletta harbour is surrounded by cream coloured buildings, twisting streets, hillsides beyond, fishing craft and luzzo boats below.

In Cadiz you enter another world of different cultures brought together. La Giralda the beautiful Gothic cathedral, is in Sevilles historic Jewish quarter Santa Cruz which also has the whitewashed houses and exquisitely coloured bougainvillea that everyone associates with this lovely city. Try walking the narrow lanes to find hidden gems along way before stopping for some locally made wine and tapas.
