Join Columbus in the amazing city of Hong Kong - where you might take in the forest of skyscrapers from Victoria Peak, and cross the harbour on the famous Star Ferry. Once on board, explore the ship and settle in to your comfortable cabin as you embark on wonderful voyage.
Today Columbus calls in the tiny port of Chan May, gateway to central Vietnam's stunning beaches and UNESCO-listed treasures. Take a shore excursion, perhaps to see pretty riverside Hoi An's preserved traditional buildings or to enchanting Imperial City Hue, where Royal pavilions and the tombs of emperors are hidden behind imposing walls.
As Columbus docks close to Vietnam's famous Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), you'll have the chance to visit the remarkable Cu Chi tunnel complex - a former Viet Cong base - or the Mekong Delta's scenic landscape of rice paddies, orchards and colourful market towns.
Your next cruise call is the island haven of Koh Samui, the ultimate, palm-fringed idyll of white sands and turquoise sea. Spend the day exploring the island, perhaps heading into the mountainous interior for spectacular views, or simply soaking up the sun on the island's stunning beaches.
As Columbus docks in bustling port of Laem Chabang you'll have the chance to visit the Thai capital, Bangkok. Take a shore excursion to discover the city's palaces and temples, gigantic Buddhas and network of khlong canals, or perhaps spend a day of rest and relaxation on one of the idyllic beaches that line the coast.
Step ashore in Singapore - gleaming, dynamic island-city and former British colonial outpost. Join optional shore excursions, or shop and sightsee at your leisure. Sample Singapore's legendary street food, and perhaps enjoy a Singapore Sling in the Raffles Hotel's famous bar.
Cruising along the Malaysian coast, Columbus calls at historic Port Klang, gateway to Kuala Lumpur. The Malay capital itself boasts the sky-piercing Petronas Towers among its spectacular sights, and a shore excursion will reveal this buzzing, cosmopolitan city, where the preserved Old Railway Station contrasts with glitzy new developments.
Colourful, Malaysian Penang is a feast for the senses. Step ashore to discover sensational street food, George Town's traditional Chinese shophouses, stunning beaches and breathtaking tropical gardens.
Today Columbus calls in the Sri Lankan capital, Colombo. Explore the restored Fort area of this bustling city, and the ancient street markets of Pettah, or perhaps to take a shore excursion into the lush, temple-studded countryside.
Kochi (also known as Cochin) on India's southwestern coast is built across a series of islands. A trading port for centuries, the city has a distinctly European feel, especially in Fort Cochin. It is also the port from which you can depart on a three-day excursion overland to discover Delhi and Agra, home to the Taj Mahal, before re-joining Columbus in Mumbai.
In former Bombay you'll see sweeping Marine Drive, the monumental arch of the Gateway of India and the colonial splendour of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. Explore the grand former Prince of Wales Museum and the vast, Gothic fantasy of the Victoria Terminus railway station - all highlights on today's optional shore excursion.
With its extraordinary skyline boasting the world's tallest structure and only seven-star hotel, Dubai is a sight to behold when approached by sea. Disembark here, as your extraordinary cruise voyage comes to an end.
