Cruise Description

70 Night cruise sailing from Sydney to Tilbury onboard Columbus.

Travel from Australia to cross the equator with a stop in Papua New Guinea before arriving in the Orient of Japan and China with visits to Vietnam. Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia give you a fascinating overview of the orient; with, Sri Lanka and India assaulting your senses with bright colours, beguiling histories and spice filled lands. After leaving the vibrant and chaotic cities of Cochin and Mumbai you’ll arrive in the historically magnificent Luxor before discovering the ‘lost city’ of Petra in Jordan and transiting the Suez Canal to Haifa for the Holy Land of Jerusalem. Piraeus for Athens and Gibraltar are your final stepping stones back to London Tilbury where your adventures end in beautiful British springtime.

Highlights of this cruise:

Sydney
Approached through its striking harbour with the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Sydney is Australia’s most cosmopolitan city. Explore the sites around the harbour where you’ll find the Customs House and the Museum of Contemporary Art. The narrow streets and alleyways of this area contain many historic buildings, pubs, restaurants and shops.

Madang
Nestled in the north of Papua New Guinea, the coast surrounding Madang is idyllic with crystal clear waters and beautiful volcanic islands dotted off the shore. Be sure to take time to appreciate this beautiful paradise, your last chance to enjoy the best of the South Pacific before sailing back over the equator to the Northern Hemisphere.

Yokohama
Travel about an hour north of the port of Yokohama to experience the frenetic energy and bright lights of Japan’s capital, Tokyo. While the city is one of the most densely populated in the world, and is constantly evolving, it is also deeply rooted in its traditions and has areas of calm amidst the rush hour crush.

Shanghai
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.

Hong Kong
The city boasts a vibrant cultural scene that features the influences of its Chinese roots and colonial connections. Take the tram up to Victoria Peak where you’ll get a spectacular 360-degree view of the island. Board one of Hong Kong’s fabled sampan boats for a cruise through the bustling harbour. In Kowloon see the Chi Lin Nunnery, Nan Lian Garden and bustling Nathan Road.

Singapore
Steeped in its colonial past, the Lion City of Sir Stamford Raffles is one of the most exciting cities in the East and provides an opportunity to visit the alleyways of Chinatown, a Hindu Temple, Sentosa Island, the world renowned botanical gardens, Jurong Bird Park and Orchard Road. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a Singapore Sling at the famous Raffles Hotel.

Cochin
Beautifully situated in Kerala, Cochin has been drawing traders and explorers to its shores for over 600 years. If you’re not tempted by an overland excursion to Delhi or Agra and the Taj Mahal, take in some of Cochin’s fascinating cultural legacy, which includes a synagogue, churches, mosques, temples and the crumbling remains of the British Raj. Don’t miss the Mattancherry Palace or a stroll along the lovely beach, scattered with unique Chinese fishing nets.

Mumbai
Your first glimpse of Mumbai, a densely populated and intoxicating city, will be the iconic Gateway of India that sits on the waterfront. A trip to Elephanta Island visits the temple carved out of rock. Visit too, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus whose exterior is a jungle of stone. Be sure to experience the furious energy of Mumbai’s markets.

Aqaba
The port of Aqaba has been an important strategic and commercial centre since Roman times. It presents the opportunity to visit the lost city of Petra, which lies in the surrounding desert - a city that is estimated to date back to 6,000 B.C. - and Wadi Rum, where T.E. Lawrence found his destiny as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’.

Athens
Piraeus is the gateway to Athens, the birthplace of democracy and a cradle of western civilisation. In this city of Plato and Socrates, visit the Acropolis with its mighty Parthenon, the temple of the Greek goddess Athena. Below the Acropolis lies the Theatre of Dionysos, the Temple of Olympian Zeus and the honeycomb of streets that make up the Plaka district of shops and tavernas. In the heart of the city there’s the National Archaeological Museum, the Olympic Stadium used for the first modern Games in 1896, the Parliament building and Syntagma Square.

Gibraltar
Famously contested, Gibraltar is a renowned headland in the Mediterranean Sea.
In ancient times known as the Pillars of Hercules with it’s African counterpart, Mt Abyla, the Rock has remained under British rule for the last 300 years, despite being connected to Spain.
A towering 1400 ft outcrop that separates the Mediterranean from the Atlantic, Gibraltar was named Jebel al-Tarik by the Moorish General Tarik who landed there in 711 AD.
See the famous Barbary apes that occupy the island as well as St Michael’s Cave and the Siege Tunnels or admire the view to Africa from a cable car.
