Asia, by Cunard.
Discover a world steeped in history but driven by
innovation, where time-honored traditions are
still held, yet nothing ever seems to stand still.
For a truly sensory experience, there’s nothing quite
like Asia. A region synonymous with enchanting
contradictions; the sights, sounds and aromas of these
fascinating nations are sure to astound you.
Nowhere embodies this spirit quite so well as Singapore,
where ancient shophouses offer a window into the past
and contemporary additions, such as the magical
Gardens by the Bay, lend the city a futuristic feel.
Embrace the opportunity to step out after dark with an
overnight port call on selected voyages.
Sailing to Vietnam introduces a multi-layered melting pot
of history in Ho Chi Minh City, while arriving in Chan May
gives you the choice between visiting the UNESCO-listed
Imperial City of Hue, or the wondrous white sands of
Da Nang’s beaches. Indonesia, meanwhile, brings the
charm of Jakarta’s old town, Kota Tua, and the intricate
Hindu temples of Bali, Island of the Gods.
Queen Elizabeth will also make several Japan
circumnavigations in 2023 and 2024, offering the chance to
visit Akita’s sake breweries, Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park
and Kanazawa’s castle, alongside maiden calls to Beppu
and Sasebo. Selected voyages also offer time ashore in Taiwan
and Busan, where Buddhist shrines and the homes of former
Emperors are among the sights to behold.
