Board Columbus in vibrant, fun-loving Sydney to begin a wonderful voyage. One of the world's great cities, with its iconic Opera House, Harbour Bridge and famous beaches, it's a wonderful place start to a cruise full of wonderful experiences.
Set to the north of Cairns, gateway to Queensland's tropical interior and a stopping-off point for the incredible Great Barrier Reef, the beautiful anchorage of Yorkey's Knob offers plenty of distractions, today. Take a glass-bottomed boat to a coral cay, or head inland into the magnificent tropical rainforest.
Sail round the Cape York Peninsula, through the Arafura Sea, to your final Australian call, Darwin. From here you'll be able to join a shore excursion to the World Heritage Site at Kakadu National Park, with its swamps, mangroves, salt-water crocodiles and ancient aboriginal art.
Today's first Indonesian island call offers the possibility of seeing komodo dragons in the wild. These famous and fearsome lizards are found only here and neighbouring Rinca, so join a National Park ranger to explore.
Raised from the ruins of WWII, the prosperous capital of the Philippines is a jaw-dropping, cosmopolitan melting pot of cultures. While Old Manila provides an insight to the city's past, and the restored cathedral reflects its status as Asia's largest Christian settlement, reminders of its long-term ties with the west can be seen throughout.
The port-city of Keelung on Taiwan's northeastern coast, welcomes us to this fascinating, historic island-nation, today. Taiwan's fascinating mix of ancient tradition and vibrant modernity, especially in its capital Taipei, promises to be one of the highlights of the entire cruise.
Columbus spends two days in Shanghai - one of the world's most amazing cities. See the colonial grandeur of the buildings that line the Bund on the west bank of the Huangpu River, and the towering futuristic skyscrapers and rocket-shaped Pearl TV Tower of the east. Explore the old city's bustling bazaars and street markets, and the tranquil pools, bridges and ornate pavilions of the Yuyuan Garden that shelter in its heart.
Conclude your cruise with two days in Hong Kong. Step ashore to explore, or choose from a range of optional excursions. There'll be chances to take the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour, view skyscrapers from Victoria Peak, visit Aberdeen's 'floating city' and colourful Stanley Market, or enjoy the North Shore's spectacular skyline and lively Nathan Road.
