Cruise BRE1308

0 days (0 days cruise only)

    Wilfried König, China expert, says: ‘The gigantic Middle Kingdom is a land of extremes, where major economic projects and the spirit of the future come together with quiet Buddhist temples and the gods of the past. On this trip China’s contrasts will be compressed for you into fabulous experiences and startling realisations.’

    Hong Kong

    On the excursion to Hong Kong Island, Aberdeen and Victoria Peak* you will see the Dragon’s Hole – a skyscraper that is so cunningly built that the dragon who supposedly lives behind the building can fly through it. Exciting Backstage encounters* await you as well, not least when you visit the stock exchange – for Chinese companies the most important centre for the acquisition of international capital. Or you may choose to leave the atmosphere of the megacity behind on an Expert excursion to Lantau – island of tranquillity and spirituality*. Together with China expert Wilfried König you can explore the Po Lin monastery, which has one of the world’s biggest freestanding statues of the Buddha – a really inspiring spectacle.

    Xiamen, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Eventful history, dynamic cities 
    Xiamen is thought to be the cleanest city in China. The special economic zone at the same time symbolises the headlong economic development of the country, while the people in the surrounding mountainous region still live to some extent by the old traditions. The Roundhouses of the Hakka*, for instance, which have formed part of the UNESCO World Culture Heritage since 2010, can accommodate up to 100 families. With their castle-like design, they are very well worth a visit. You can also travel back in time to a fascinating past when you visit Quanzhou, which used to be one of China’s most important ports. The impressive Traces of the Silk Road on the sea* to be found here include the Kaiyuan Temple, flanked by life-sized guardian figures on horseback, as well as one of the oldest mosques in the country.

    Relaxation at sea

    Putuo Shan, from 8.00 to 15.00 hrs

    The living heritage of Buddhism, widespread in China since the 7th century, can be experienced on the holy island of Putuo Shan. The mountain of the same name is the smallest of the four holy mountains of Chinese Buddhism. More than 20 temple and monastery complexes are hidden away in the midst of the green forests.  Be inspired by the peaceful atmosphere on an Expert excursion to the holy mountain of Putuo*, or you may prefer to take an Island hike*.

    Freedom with an ocean view: Every one of the 80 outside cabins and 2 suites on the BREMEN gives you lots of space to relax in complete comfort. The personal touch is highlighted by the little things, such as the bathrobe, the mini bar (which is refilled with soft drinks for free every day) and the live images from the forward-view camera. You can also adjust the temperature of your room to suit you. And naturally, you can always enjoy an ocean view through wide panoramic windows, through the maritime portholes or from your private balcony.

    A cruise of culinary discovery: Against the backdrop of the most beautiful expedition regions, you can enjoy excellent cuisine – such as the fantastical creations and modern interpretations of our chef de cuisine here in the restaurant. On the Lido Deck, a barbecue al fresco is just as inspiring as a drink in the Panorama Lounge with its incredible views. The BREMEN Club is always a popular meeting place for breakfast, the lunch buffet or evening cocktails at the bar. Whatever place you choose, it will be just to your taste.
