Back-to-back cruises can be booked together to form a longer Collectors’ Voyage that provides a more in-depth exploration of the world’s largest continent. Combining two itineraries, the Asia Collectors’ Voyages range from 26 to 30 days and feature few if any repeating ports.
Asian Culture Comes to Life on Board with EXC Encounters & Shore Excursions
Throughout the cruises, EXC programming brings Asia’s local traditions, culinary tastes and cultural experiences to life on board. Through EXC Encounters, guests can participate in activities like transforming a piece of paper into origami art, perfecting chopstick skills, learning the etiquette of local tea ceremonies, and exploring the poses and postures of the statues of Buddha.
Guests who want to learn more about the region can attend an EXC Talk by an EXC Guide about the ports of call, or head to an EXC Port to Table cooking demonstration, cooking class or themed mixology class featuring local fare. The Dining Room and Lido Market also will showcase the flavors of Asia.
Asia cruises feature a diverse selection of shore excursions that allow guests to immersively experience each port of call. Tours focus on culture, history, nature, architecture, adventure, culinary topics and family outings. Exclusive culinary-themed shore excursions in partnership with FOOD & WINE magazine showcase the regions’ food scenes from a local perspective.
