New Asia Cruise Opportunities From Princess Cruises

A rescheduled Diamond Princess drydock has opened up a great opportunity for Princess Cruises to offer travelers some intriguing new Asia options. Two new Asia sailings added to Diamond Princess’ schedule offer unique itineraries that explore some of the most alluring ports in the region.

Departing in October and November 2013, the 10- and 11-day Asia cruises will sail roundtrip from Singapore, taking in some of the best of Southeast Asia’s ports of call, including Bangkok, Bali, Nha Trang and Phuket, as well as two ports not usually visited on Diamond Princess itineraries—Penang, Malaysia and Sihanoukville, Cambodia.

The new cruises are:
Southeast Asia—11 Days (Departing Oct 24, 2013)
Sailing roundtrip from Singapore, Diamond Princess will call at Brunei, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, Sihanoukville (Cambodia), Bangkok, and Ko Samui in Thailand.
Malaysia Peninsula & Indonesia—10 days (Departing Nov 4, 2013)
Also cruising roundtrip from Singapore, passengers will explore exotic Bali, Malaysia’s Capital of Kuala Lumpur, Penang (Malaysia), and Thailand’s beach resort of Phuket.
If you have more time, both sailings can be combined into a 21-day Southeast Asia Grand Adventure. Passengers on these sailings can enjoy shore excursion options that include some of Asia’s most intriguing sights and experiences, including the stunningly beautiful Grand Palace in Bangkok, Long Son Pagoda with its bird’s-eye view of Nha Trang, the skilled artisans of Mas Village in Bali, and Phuket’s most important Buddhist temple at Wat Chalong. An overland excursion offers visitors the opportunity to visit the magnificent Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
