Day by day itinerary

Day 1 — Sydney, Australia
Sydney Harbour, Australia

Sydney Harbour, Australia

Sydney is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city surrounded by golden sand beaches, World Heritage areas, lush national parks and acclaimed wine regions. Sydney owes much of its splendor to its magnificent harbor. Arriving by ship provides an unequaled impression, showing off the city's famous landmarks: the dramatic white sails of the iconic Opera House and the celebrated Harbor Bridge, looming over the skyline.

Day 2 — At Sea
Day 3 — Brisbane, Australia

Once a harsh penal settlement, Brisbane is now Queensland's dynamic capital city. A blend of steel and glass defines the skyline, while riverside delights - botanical gardens, promenades, cafes and markets - mesmerize at eye level. Sample shore excursions: Brisbane Sights & Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

Day 4 — Moreton Island, Queensland, Australia
Day 5 — At Sea
Day 6 — Airlie Beach, Queensland, Australia
Day 7 — Townsville, Australia
Townsville City Queensland Australia from Mt Stewart

Townsville City Queensland Australia from Mt Stewart

The unofficial capital of North Queensland, Townsville is tucked inside the Great Barrier Reef in the northern tropics. Its municipal beach, The Strand, is consistently rated among Australia’s cleanest. Take a ferry to Magnetic Island, an unspoiled UNESCO World Heritage Site just offshore, or visit the Billabong Sanctuary wildlife reserve.

Day 8 — Cairns, Australia
Cairns esplenade

Cairns esplenade

A cosmopolitan city flanked by pristine rainforests and golden beaches, Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Kuranda, and the Daintree rainforest, a World Heritage protected area. The city was recently renovated to enhance its image and provide a relaxing place for visitors and locals to congregate and have fun. Cairns Esplanade, once a huge grassy park, now features an excellent facility incorporating an outdoor amphitheatre, a sandy swimming lagoon, walking tracks, shops and restaurants, and an environmental interpretation center.

Day 9 to 12 — At Sea
Day 13 — Dili, East Timor
Day 14 — At Sea
Day 15 — Komodo Island, Indonesia

This island national park isn’t the only place the large (up to 10-foot) monitor lizards known as “Komodo Dragons” live. But they are protected here, and flourish as they have in the region for millions of years. Follow your guide and listen carefully to his instructions, because despite their torpid appearance, these giants can really move when they want to, and they apparently aren’t picky about what sort of prey they pursue.

Day 16 — Senggigi, Indonesia
Day 17 to 18 — Benoa (Denpasar), Bali
Day 19 — Komodo Island, Indonesia

This island national park isn’t the only place the large (up to 10-foot) monitor lizards known as “Komodo Dragons” live. But they are protected here, and flourish as they have in the region for millions of years. Follow your guide and listen carefully to his instructions, because despite their torpid appearance, these giants can really move when they want to, and they apparently aren’t picky about what sort of prey they pursue.

Day 20 — At Sea
Day 21 — Celukan Bawang, Bali, Indonesia

In this important port, you may see numbers of the famous high-prowed Bugis schooners, the traditional trading vessels of the archipelago. They carry timber, cement and other goods from Sumatra and Kalimantan. Relax on the black sand Lovina beach, or visit Singaraja, Bali’s second-largest city, which retains the feel of a colonial capital.

Day 22 — Probolinggo, Java

East Java highlights include a national park with multiple volcanoes, the 600-foot Madakaripura waterfall and the 14th-century Jabung Buddhist temple cut from glowing red stone. Other options include beaches, river rafting and a wealth of traditional handicrafts.

Day 23 — Surabaya, Indonesia

Surabaya is Indonesia's second-largest city with a population of over 2.7 million (5.6 million in the metropolitan area), and the capital of the province of East Java. Shoppers will enjoy the extensive shopping centers and boutiques throughout the city. Others may wish to take in Bonbin Surabaya, one of the largest zoos in Southeast Asia. Other points of interest include the Grand Mosque of Surabaya (the largest mosque in East Java), the Mpu Tantular Museum of Javanese culture, and the Submarine Monument, also known as Monumen Kapal Selam. City sightseeing buses with English-speaking tour guides are available at the House of Sampoerna museum.

Day 24 — Semarang (Borobudur), Java, Indonesia

Semarang is a commercial port located roughly halfway between Jakarta and Surabaya, along Java's north central coast. Many of the island's most important exports (tobacco, sugar, rubber, coffee, and cacao) are shipped through Semarang. Because of its accessibility to the island's interior, it is an ideal gateway to the mystic Borobudur.

Day 25 to 26 — At Sea
Day 27 — Singapore
Singapore

Singapore

Founded as a British trading colony in 1819, Singapore joined the Malaysian Federation in 1963. Two years later, it became an independent island-state, developing into one of the world's most prosperous countries. With ultra-modern skyscrapers combined with a medley of Chinese, Indian and Malay influences, Singapore is a dynamic city rich in contrast and color, exhibiting a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture.
