Day 1 London to Singapore (overnight flight)

Day 2 Singapore
Arrive in Singapore, where we will transfer you to your hotel. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy, either relaxing or exploring this vibrant city state. It has changed out of all recognition since being founded as a British trading colony in 1819. Now the so-called Lion City is a melting pot of contrasting cultures where Chinese, Indian, Malay and British influences rub shoulders with modern skyscrapers that reflect Singapore’s modern hi tech status as an Asian powerhouse. But no visit is complete without sampling a Singapore Sling at the colonial Raffles Hotel.
The Fullerton | Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 Singapore / Embarkation
This morning we will transfer you to the cruise port to board Seabourn Sojourn.
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4-5 At Sea
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6 Laem Chabang (Bangkok), Thailand
The frenetic whirl of Bangkok awaits with its heady mix of charm and chaos. The Thai capital is a perfect place for shopping enthusiasts to haggle at market stalls or browse in designer stores. Temples are tucked on to each street and every corner, but the most prominent building is the vast Grand Palace, home of the Thai royal family and arguably Bangkok’s most famous landmark. For a more authentic flavour, take a boat ride along the canals, known as klongs, for a glimpse of traditional Thai life.
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 Ko Kood, Thailand
Today’s stop at this Thai outpost promises to be an occasion you will never forget. This castaway isle is the setting of Seabourn’s signature ‘Caviar in the Surf’ beach barbecue where drinks and caviar are served in the shallows by attentive waiters. This aquatic cocktail party is followed by a superb lunchtime feast prepared by Seabourn staff. Al fresco massages and complimentary water sports set the seal on the most memorable of days and one of the highlights of the cruise.
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 Sihanoukville, Cambodia
Cambodia’s only international marine port, sitting on the Gulf of Thailand, is noted for the eye-catching beaches of golden sand that hug the surrounding coastline. But visitors to the city, also known as Kampong Som, can take their pick from a clutch of cultural sites that include the Victory Monument, symbolising Cambodia’s friendship with Vietnam, and Independence Square, which pays tribute to the Cambodians who died in defence of their country.

Day 9 At Sea
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10-11 Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City is a fascinating mix of modern and colonial, whose turbulent history has been overtaken by Vietnam’s rapid economic growth. The influence of the country’s former French rulers is best illustrated by the city’s Notre Dame Cathedral and Central Post Office, which is well worth a look inside for its colonial architecture. As Saigon, the city played a crucial role in the Vietnam War, a story told at the fascinating War Remnants Museum. Tourists can also travel outside the city to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels, used to devastating effect by the Viet Cong.
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 12 At Sea
Enjoy the facilities on-board as Seabourn Soujourn sails towards Da Nang.
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 13 Da Nang (Hue), Vietnam
Under French colonial rule, this city was known as Tourane and became one of Vietnam’s key ports before fading into something of a backwater. But now the city is riding the crest of Vietnam’s economic wave with a host of sparkling new developments. Soak up the ambience of this thriving city or explore the surrounding area where top attractions include the imperial city and former capital Hue, the ancient port town of Hoi An, the craggy Marble Mountains topped with pagodas, or the white sands of China Beach.
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 14 At Sea
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 15 Halong Bay, Vietnam
There is nowhere else quite like Halong Bay, with its towering limestone pillars topped with tropical vegetation rising out of the emerald waters of the Bay of Tonkin. Tiny islets carved out of the rock complete this spectacular seascape which has been beautifully sculpted by nature. You are guaranteed some of the best views as you spend the day cruising through this unique spectacle.
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 16 At Sea
Seabourn Sojourn | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 17-18 Hong Kong
This is one of the world’s most captivating cities with the towering skyscrapers and futuristic architecture of Hong Kong Island, the buzzing shopping streets of Kowloon Peninsula and the relative peace and traditional settlements of the New Territories and outlying islands. For the best views of the city, take the tram to the top of Victoria Peak or jump on the Star Ferry boats that criss-cross Hong Kong harbour. This city is famous as a shopper’s delight with boutiques, night markets and tailors who famously run-up outfits in hours. The cruise concludes here, but why not stop just one more night in this vibrant city.
Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong | Meals: Breakfast

Day 19 Hong Kong / UK
