Highlights of this cruise:

Yorkeys Knob
This northern beach suburb of Cairns is named after George ‘Yorkey’ Lawson, a fisherman from Yorkshire who arrived in the area in the mid 19th century and built a homestead. To the north of the knob (the headland) lies a calm bay, to the south an incredible beach, one of the top 10 kitesurfing destinations in the world. Cairns itself is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and Kurunda National Park (both optional shore excursions), and also a centre for sailing, diving and snorkelling.

China’s largest city and, with over 24million inhabitants, the most populous city in the world, Shanghai is now also a global financial centre. Pretty much anything you could want is here, but, at the heart of this futuristic metropolis, there is still plenty of history: there’s the Old City to explore, as well as the Bund, the famous waterfront promenade lined with colonial-era buildings. The latter lies across the Huangpu River from the space age skyline of Pudong, which boasts two of the top 10 tallest buildings in the world – the 632m Shanghai Tower and 492m Shanghai World Financial Centre.
