You’ll feel right at home the moment you step on board Black Watch, and with some of the world’s most recognisable sites presenting themselves immediately in Singapore, you’re sure to be enthralled from the outset. Savour the likes of Raffles Hotel and the Gardens by the Bay before heading to Port Klang; from here you can tour to the cosmopolitan city of Kuala Lumpur, which is full of multicultural character and an impressive urban landscape dominated by the iconic Petronas Towers. After a day in Malaysia’s marvellous capital, head to exotic Thailand and Sri Lanka, where enriching discovery and unforgettable experiences await you. Explore the Wat Chalong Temple, uncover James Bond Island via speedboat, or simply top up the tan in Phuket. Then there’s ample opportunity to discover the highlights of Sri Lanka, from sleepy fishing villages and bustling bazaars, to the ancient city of Kandy and the elephants of Udawalawe National Park. Nearing the halfway point of your incredible trip there are two days to enjoy some well-deserved relaxation on the paradise islands of the Maldives; the stuff dreams are made of. Feel the sun on your skin and the sand between your toes as you stroll along the picture-perfect beaches of Uligamu and Utheemu, savour local fresh fish and fruit, and perhaps opt for a spot of snorkelling in the impossibly blue waters. You’ll then have the chance to haggle for souvenirs such as gold, silver and genuine frankincense in huge souks, see the eye-catching Sultan Qaboos Palace and explore the archaeological sites of Al Balid and Samhuram in Salalah, Oman; all this before sailing onwards to Egypt. Four fascinating days follow, beginning with a call into Safaga; from here you can opt for a trip to the temple of Luxor and marvel at the Valley of the Kings. The popular resort of Sharm el-Sheikh is next, after which you’ll transit the impressive Suez Canal – one of the world’s great cruise experiences – to Alexandria, which is the gateway to the iconic Pyramids of Giza. Encountering the only surviving Ancient Wonder of the World is the perfect way to round things off, before ending your adventure with calls into Valletta – the stunning scenic capital of Malta – and the marvellous Spanish city of Malaga.
