Cruise Description

30 Night Cruise sailing from Brisbane to Dubai aboard Black Watch.

With Black Watch as your guide, experience the contrasts of Asia to the full as you sail between stunning islands boasting unspoilt natural landscapes, beautiful beaches and incredible wildlife, and spectacular cities packed with man-made marvels and iconic sights.

This exciting voyage begins in Australia, taking in three diverse cities in just over a week. After meeting your ship in charming Brisbane it’s on to Cairns for the chance to explore tropical rainforest and dense wetlands, or tour to the awe-inspiring Great Barrier Reef; before sailing to Darwin to discover the delights of the Northern Territory’s capital. A simply unforgettable experience awaits you at the first stop on your Asian journey. Black Watch will drop anchor at the Indonesian island of Komodo, where you can go ashore in search of Komodo Dragons – the world’s largest lizard; and bask in the unique beauty of the shimmering Pink Beach. In contrast to the unspoilt beauty and tranquillity of Komodo, Singapore offers soaring structures and energetic city life. Experience modern Asia among the maze of skyscrapers in the Financial District; or perhaps visit Chinatown and see the striking Sri Mariamman Temple. Alternatively you could explore the beautiful Gardens by the Bay, showcasing an array of colourful flora from around the globe.

Up next on your incredible itinerary is fabulous Phuket. The breathtaking scenery of iconic Phang Nga Bay is just a short speedboat ride away from this Thai idyllic island and has to be seen to be believed; while you can capture the famous ‘James Bond Island’ too. You’ll then immerse yourself in the history, culture, hustle and bustle and beauty of India, visiting three remarkable ports of call. During a call into Kochi you could head to Kumbalangi to see the famous Chinese fishing nets dotted along the glorious coastline; or perhaps opt to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip the wonderful, white-marble wonder that is the Taj Mahal. From Kochi you’ll cruise to Mormugão, gateway to the historic centres of Old Goa and the Latin Quarter, laden with old houses, churches and cathedral; before an overnight stay in Mumbai brings your time in India to a memorable close. With time to explore the vibrant city at your leisure, highlights including the historic Colaba quarter, iconic Victoria Railway Terminus and Dhobi Ghat laundry district all await your discovery. Your unforgettable cruise concludes in the UAE, disembarking in glamourous and ultra-modern Dubai, home of the Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest building.

Highlights of this cruise:

Brisbane, Australia
With its harmonious mix of elegant colonial sandstone structures and modern glass skyscrapers, Brisbane is one of the world's fastest developing cities. Located alongside the beautiful Brisbane River, this friendly, welcoming city has a laid back, vibrant atmosphere and offers an abundance of walks, reserves and barbecue hotspots to enjoy.

Komodo, Indonesia
Tour the Komodo National Park, home to the unique Komodo Dragon – truly exceptional, it’s the world’s largest lizard – as well as dozens of other rare species. The surrounding seas have extensive coral reefs, mangrove swamps and sea-grass beds home to sharks, dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles and whales.

Goa, India
The tiny State of Goa is renowned for its superb beaches and colonial history. Combining the best of Indian and Portuguese culture, Goa is both a classic beach resort and a sightseeing delight, with a mix of scenic beauty and architectural delights, from golden sandy beaches and spice plantations to striking temples and bustling markets.

On the south of the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai blends traditional Arabia with the excesses of the 21st century in a unique mix. See the famous Burj Khalifa Tower – the world’s tallest building – visit the man-made Palm Islands or take a drive through the Arabian Desert, where the sand dunes display a spectacular sight at sunrise.
