    The highlights of this cruise

    Right at the beginning of your cruise, embrace the hustle and bustle of HONG KONG, and enjoy the urban flair between street stalls and luxury malls late into the evening. Gaze back on the megacity’s night-time skyline with its millions of twinkling lights as you head for the land of the 7,000 islands.

    En route to the PHILIPPINES you can enjoy the range of amenities on board the EUROPA for two days: relax outdoors on a deckchair with a book, or find your favourite activities in our varied on-board programme. Relaxation also awaits you on the palm-lined beach of BORACAY – whether you choose to bathe in the turquoise water or unwind by taking a walk. If you’d rather be closer to civilisation, visit the quaint Talipapa Market, where fresh fruit, seafood and other regional delicacies are sold from colourful stalls. One of Palawan Province’s greatest specialities is definitely its breathtaking natural landscapes. Take EL NIDO, for example. The EUROPA will be calling at its port for the first time. There are a great many small, idyllic islands off the steep cliffs. Set out in outriggers* to discover their diversity. A little further south you’ll find PUERTO PRINCESA, which gave its name to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. An underground boat trip* on the Sabang River will not only take you on a journey of discovery to the home of endemic wildlife, but also provide you with a welcome opportunity to cool down, given that temperatures here rarely fall below 30 °C.

    You will also be amazed by Mother Nature’s ingenuity on BORNEO. From the harbour city of Kota Kinabalu, famous for its splendid mosque, you will visit the world’s oldest rainforest at the foot of Malaysia’s highest mountain. Kinabalu National Park* spans 754 km² (291 mi²) and is home to thousands of exotic plant, bird and mammal species. You won’t come across the rather shy orangutans here, but there will be an opportunity to see them at the wildlife sanctuary* in SANDAKAN. Get up-close and see how well the staff care for these beautiful animals, which, sadly, are still highly endangered. The next two days will focus on health and well-being. Go for a sauna then unwind in the relaxation room of our OCEAN SPA as the World’s Most Beautiful Yacht takes you across the equator and straight into magical Indonesia.

    From PAREPARE, follow in the footsteps of old indigenous tribes on a strenuous but rewarding day trip. With its stilt buildings that look like ships and its intricate carvings, the village of the Toraja* feels like a mysterious religious site. The region’s largest group of people are the Bugis, who travelled to the Australian continent long before the European colonialists arrived. The next stop on your cruise is KOMODO. There aren’t many people living on this unspoilt island – but it is home to the world’s largest lizard. If, during a walk with rangers*, you spot a Komodo dragon – which can be up to 3 m (9.8 ft.) long – you’ll feel as though you have gone back in time to the age of the dinosaurs. On Bali, the “island of the gods”, your unforgettable cruise will come to an end.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
