Enjoy the Best of the Far East in 2015

If you’re looking to get the most out of your holiday but are pushed for time then look no further than our exotic fly-cruises to the Far East. These magical holidays will take you on an unforgettable journey where you'll witness beautiful beaches, jaw-dropping landscapes, mystical and exciting cities.

From Bustling Bombay to Beautiful Burma

Come aboard Balmoral as she makes her journey from bustling Bombay, to the beautiful plains of Burma. Our Far East cruises are renowned for being memorable adventures that get to the very heart of where they explore. Fly into the luxurious skyscraper laden city of Dubai to begin your journey toward the first port of call in Mumbai. After experiencing the absorbing atmosphere of the busy markets and admiring the beauty of the city’s stunning religious sites, you will sail to the tropical beaches of Sri Lanka and rich waters of the Andaman Islands before making your way to the stunning Burmese city of Yangon for a revitalising overnight stay.

Cities & Landscapes of the Orient

Discover some of the Far East's finest treasures with our 'Cities & Landscapes of the Orient’ fly-cruise. Fly into the high-tech metropolis of Tokyo and enjoy a day amongst the bright neon lights and technological marvels of Japan’s capital before setting sail for the 1,400 year old city of Osaka. Boasting a modernised city skyline, Osaka has been built from the ground up after WWII but still retains its traditional Japanese roots, as seen in the impressive Osaka Castle.

You’ll then leave Japan behind and make your way towards South Korea where you’ll visit the volcanic and waterfall-rich island of Jeju, otherwise known as the Hawaii of Korea. From there the scintillating capital city of Seoul awaits, before you make your way to witness the seemingly never-ending array of stunning landmarks that China has to offer.

Danang, Saigon & Siam

With each passing year, more visitors flock to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand to feast their eyes on the multitude of ancient temples, embrace the vibrant city culture and relax on the luxurious white sandy beaches. Your East-Asian adventure will begin with a day in the pulsating city of Hong Kong, before departing for the breath-taking plains of Vietnam. Here you’ll witness both natural beauty and man-made greatness as you visit ethereal temples surrounded by exceptional mountain ranges.

Next you will sail to the Cambodian paradise of Sihanoukville to relax on the white-sand beaches of Occheuteal and Serendipity before enjoying an overnight stay Bangkok, Thailand’s tantalising capital. You will then head to the sun-drenched Thai island of Koh Samui for a day of pure relaxation before ending your unforgettable cruise with an overnight stay in stunning Singapore, one of Asia’s most dynamic must-visit destinations.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

At Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines we are very proud of our smaller ships – Bolette, Borealis and Balmoral - and the imaginative and unusual itineraries they allow us to offer. Every cruise is hand-crafted from scratch by our team of in-house Journey Planners to make sure you are not only visiting the best destinations, but at the best time to experience them.

For us, it’s not just about where we go but how we take you there. We put as much time into planning scenic cruising as we do in choosing the destinations themselves. On board, our Signature Experiences showcase the history, culture, nature and flavours of the destinations you’ll visit – from Treats of the Region, where you can enjoy local delicacies, to our Sky at Sea star-gazing sessions where you can relax with a hot toddy out on deck while our astronomer talks you through the night sky.

Plus, with each ship carrying 1,300 guests or less, our ships are small enough for us to offer a warm, friendly and personal service where nothing is ever too much trouble, as we visit a host of exciting ports in every corner of the globe.
