    The highlights of this cruise

    What a view: every evening, a light show bathes HONG KONG’S skyscrapers in vibrant colours – a wonderful spectacle to start your cruise! After a day at sea you will reach Keelung, the port of TAIPEI. Taiwan’s capital is bursting with activities. How about the National Palace Museum, with an unbelievable 696,112 exhibits from 5,000 years of Chinese history? The monumental Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall* is also worth a visit. As you walk through the surrounding garden landscape, the magnificent white building will light your way from the distance. Konnichiwa and welcome to Japan. You will spend two incomparable days and two thrilling nights in TOKYO: head to the famous Shibuya Crossing and experience the fascinating interplay of vibrant neon adverts, huge Japanese characters and thousands of perfectly choreographed pedestrians for yourself. The district of the same name is not far away, home to the best fashion shops and boutiques. If you find yourself longing for peace and quiet in the bustling city, enjoy a very special perspective on a boat trip* on the Sumida River. One last tip: Tokyo has the most Michelin-starred restaurants in the world – you’re sure to find something you like.

    Mount Fuji rises up behind SHIMIZU, offering a panorama tailor-made for a Japanese tea ceremony*. The EUROPA will spend two days in KOBE. Head to the lofty heights of the red Port Tower for an initial overview. This is also a good opportunity to get to know Kyoto*: with teahouses in narrow alleys, geishas in colourful garments and picturesque temples under arched roofs, the old imperial city is a living Japanese picture book. Japan’s famous landmark sits in the bay off HIROSHIMA, on the island of Miyajima*: at high tide, the red, typically Japanese torii gates in front of the Itsukushima Shrine are surrounded by water; at low tide, you can walk to the gates in search of mussels. Encounter Japan’s more recent history in NAGASAKI. The Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum* will teach you more about the pivotal year of 1945, while the Peace Park reflects the modern city’s cheerful activity.

    In KAGOSHIMA, we want to entice you into a Japanese dream: pretty decorative trees in perfect green spaces, tranquil lakes and babbling streams – this pure beauty makes the Sengan-en gardens* a highlight of Japanese garden art. The small island of ISHIGAKI is breathtaking with its natural riches. Walk along the white sandy beaches and enjoy the view of the lush, tropical plant life. SHANGHAI, China’s largest city, brings your cruise to a spectacular conclusion. Get up early and set out for the Bund. This famous promenade on the shore of the Huangpu River is still lined with beautiful structures from the British colonial era. The skyline of the Pudong district rises up on the other side with the characteristic pink orbs of the Oriental Pearl Tower. Explore China’s gateway to the world and return home after a final night on board.

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