Beyond Your Imagination
Set sail in a new direction with our custom itinerary between two of the world’s most iconic cities, Singapore and Bangkok – both wonders on their own and the perfect endpoints to an extraordinary experience.
Singapore welcomes all. A tiny but mighty nation-city of endless wonder, and innovation. From fascinating iconic architecture to the world’s best shopping to streets packed with history and charm. And then there’s the food! No place on earth has more delectable choices at all levels than Singapore. Except maybe Bangkok!
Nine days later, you’ll arrive in the bustling, multi-layered city of Bangkok, where revered traditions and history blend seamlessly into a pulsing modern city. Thrill at the wonder and majesty of the city’s many temples and palace sights. Lose yourself in the vibrant markets. Take a boat trip down Chao Praya. And discover a world of never-ending delight in Bangkok’s fascinating food scene.
We’ll make it easy to explore both cities with pre and post-cruise programs available in late March.
The Contrasts of Malaysia
Our first stop is Port Klang, gateway to Malaysia’ capital city of Kuala Lumpur, one of the worlds’ fastest growing cities dotted with landmarks ranging from skyscrapers to mosques to gleaming parks and fascinating neighborhoods.

The other side of Malaysia awaits when we visit the serenely beautiful tropical island of Langkawi. This UNESCO Heritage Site is the center of an archipelago of over 90 distinct islands in the Andaman Sea, brimming with life on in a unique natural landscape surrounded by pearl white beaches. From ancient rainforests to warm tropical waters to superb duty-free shopping, there’s no island with so much to offer in all of Asia.

Atlantis returns to the land of smiles in a big way, starting with the picture-perfect tropical island of Ko Samui. Thailand’s second largest island is ringed with powder white beaches surrounding dense mountainous rainforest. From magical Buddhist temples to vibrant beach towns, to crystal-clear waters, there are few places like it on earth.
After your glorious island day, we’ll sail on to Bangkok – the thriving heart of Thailand and a city of endless contrasts. Explore the Grand Galace, golden Buddha, and other historical sites with ease. Shop everywhere – from upscale boutiques to thai designers to a cornucopia of intriquing local markets.

And eat. Everything. Everywhere. All at once. There’s no better food scene in the world with something for all palates, styles, and tastes. You’ll never look at Thai food the same way again!
