Total length of cruise: 15 Nights

Day 1 — Mumbai, India
Embark your ship today in the bustling metropolis of Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay. Constructed over seven islands, today the city straddles a flat peninsula jutting into the sea. Beyond the modern skyline, you’ll discover a great diversity of neighborhoods, making any exploration of Mumbai full of surprises. As we remain in port overnight, you’ll have time to enjoy dinner in town if you wish.

Day 2 — Mumbai, India
Witness the cultural splendor of Old Bombay today, one of the world’s greatest ports. Constructed over seven islands, today the city straddles a flat peninsula jutting into the sea. The city’s Portuguese and British influences come to light as you view the Library of the Asiatic Society, the Hanging Gardens, Kamla Nehru Park and Dhobi Ghat, where locals still do laundry. You will also visit the National Gandhi Museum, housed in a mansion known as Mani Bhavan that the Indian hero used as his headquarters from 1917 to 1934, and see major monuments built during the British era.

Day 3 — Goa (Mormugao), India

Arrive in the state of Goa this morning, one of the richest in India. Until 1961, this was the colony of Portuguese India, which had existed for more than four centuries. Its influence remains in the city’s grand colonial architecture, some of the most impressive in all of India. See the Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in Panaji, where mass is still conducted in English, Portuguese and the local Konkani dialect. In Old Goa, admire the Basilica of Bom Jesus, the Sé Cathedral and numerous Portuguese-style colonial houses.

Day 4 — Cruise the Laccadive Sea
Cruise around the bottom of India into the Laccadive Sea today, passing through the Gulf of Mannar, one of the richest marine environments in the world, harboring 3,600 species of flora and fauna. Pearl-diving is a rich tradition in these waters, and it is still practiced today. As your ship cruises nears Sri Lanka, learn more about the lush and historic island-nation during this evening’s port talk.

Day 5 — Colombo, Sri Lanka
Arrive in Colombo for an overnight stay, giving you time to experience its capital and its famed lush countryside in depth. The island was first colonized by the Portuguese, who took control of the cinnamon trade. The Dutch followed, then the English ruled it as Ceylon until it became independent in 1972. Visit the British fort and Old Parliament Building, the affluent Cinnamon Gardens district, the Colombo National Museum—with its more than 4,000 palm leaf manuscripts—and the city’s largest temple, Gangaramaya.

Day 6 — Colombo, Sri Lanka
Enjoy a full day in Colombo to venture beyond the city into the Sri Lankan countryside, or explore Colombo by tuk-tuk, the iconic tricycle taxis. You might also visit Pinnawala, where orphaned elephants are rehabilitated and cared for. Or tour Kandy, the royal city in the hills. Its lush environment and the graceful architecture make it the loveliest city in the entire country.

Day 7 — Scenic Cruising: Bay of Bengal
Sail the history-rich waters of the Bay of Bengal, the largest bay in the world. Ancient Hindu calls it Mahodadhi, meaning “great water receptacle.” As you sail eastward, you might start your day with a walk around the Promenade Deck; once around measures one mile. Later, you might indulge in a manicure or pedicure at The Salon and enjoy a first-run or classic movie in one of the onboard cinemas. Tonight, enjoy elegant Indian cuisine in The Restaurant.

Day 8 —Scenic Cruising: Bay of Bengal
Continue crossing the Bay of Bengal today, fed by the waters of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Irrawaddy Rivers. Some devout Hindus consider its waters sacred and each day perform an aarti, a religious ritual in which they place fire offerings into the surf and let the tides carry them away. Enjoy a book in your ship’s Library. Attend an enlightening talk about Southeast Asia. And enjoy an evening of light music in one of our elegant venues.

Day 9 — Cruise the Strait of Malacca
Cruise through the Strait of Malacca today. This narrow passage between Malaysia and Indonesia was long a major trade route for the earliest traders shipping glassware, precious stones, camphor, ivory and sandalwood. As you cross its historic waters, you might attend a lecture to learn about your upcoming ports. This evening, sample some regional cuisine at the World Café or at The Restaurant.

Day 10 — George Town, Malaysia
Visit Malaysia’s Penang Island and its capital of George Town. The island is an incredibly diverse mix of cultural influences from all over Asia, the result of centuries of trade and immigration, complemented by generations of colonialism under the British East India Company. Recognized for its unique blend of architecture and culture, George Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire some of its stately neoclassical buildings, colorful Hindu temples, elegant minarets and cheerfully painted row houses.

Day 11 — Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang), Malaysia
Take in the breathtaking cityscapes of Kuala Lumpur, the lively capital of Malaysia. From our berth in Port Klang, you will journey to KL, as the locals call it, for a panoramic city tour with many photo opportunities. You will pass the National Museum, the huge bronze National Monument, and the National Mosque of Malaysia. Stop in scenic Merdeka Square (Independence Square), the most photographed spot in the city, and view the breathtaking Petronas Towers, resembling a pair of steel-clad docked rocket ships linked by a towering catwalk.

Day 12 — Singapore, Singapore
Arrive in Singapore today. This city-state is spread across 63 islands at the tip of the Malay Peninsula and was established in 1819 for the British East India Company by Sir Stamford Raffles, after whom Singapore’s famed hotel is named. Today, it is a diverse city of varied influences, as you can see during visits to the Colonial District, Little India, Arab Street and Chinatown.

Day 13 — Scenic Cruising: Gulf of Thailand
Today you will enter the Gulf of Thailand, the former Gulf of Siam. Long an important waterway for traders and merchants, it has helped shape the economies of Southeast Asia and the Malay Peninsula for centuries. As you cruise, you might enjoy the views from your stateroom’s veranda or from the Infinity Pool. This evening, attend a port talk about your upcoming Thailand ports and enjoy a star-filled night sky.

Day 14 — Koh Samui (Nathon), Thailand
Explore the Thai island of Koh Samui, a paradise of sandy beaches, coral reefs and coconut trees. Thailand’s second largest island after Phuket, this self-sufficient community had no roadways until the early 1970s. Today, it is a favored spot for sun-loving beachcombers from Thailand and beyond. Visit the island’s revered temples and witness some of the scampering monkeys that have been trained to harvest coconuts from the treetops.

Day 15 — Bangkok (Laem Chabang), Thailand
Experience the splendor of Siam of Old during an overnight stay. Cultural and political capital of Thailand, Bangkok is beautifully set on the Chao Phraya River. Marvel at the towering Wat Arun on the river’s banks and the temples and elegant buildings of the renowned Grand Palace. Sample the famous Thai cuisine for lunch and take in the city’s canals, bustling with traditional longboats. If you wish, visit the Dusit Palace complex and the Jim Thompson House, former home of the city’s renowned silk merchant.

Day 16 — Bangkok (Laem Chabang), Thailand
Disembark this morning and transfer to the Bangkok airport for your flight home. Or explore more with our post-extension in this fascinating city.
