What to Expect
Moderate activity level
Cultural Immersion
PACING:
  • The pacing of this trip is moderate.
  • 37 nights aboard the 5-star Ocean Explorer; plus 2 nights at the Conrad Centennial Singapore, 2 nights in Amman at the Deluxe InterContinental Amman (or similar), and 1 night each at the Cinnamon Lodge Habarana in Sri Lanka and the Deluxe Hilton Luxor Resort & Spa (or similar) in Luxor for overnight excursions
  • Over the course of 46 days you'll visit 23 ports of call in 11 different countries. Sightseeing is usually offered in half-day tours, with time to relax every day
  • There are 11 days at sea when you have ample time to relax and enjoy the amenities on board your luxury expedition vessel
  • We often cruise overnight but some scenic sailing will be conducted during daylight hours

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:
  • You should be in relatively good health to fully enjoy this tour
  • This journey does not entail walking for great distances in most destinations but you will be on your feet for an hour or two at a time and sometimes more
  • Many days feature full-day excursions
  • Most city sightseeing takes place on air-conditioned coaches with guides
  • There are several walking tours through archaeological sites, historic centers, and villages where uneven steps and cobblestones should be expected
  • You will have the opportunity to swim, snorkel, kayak, and ride bikes
  • This cruise tour is not suitable for those who have difficulty walking or require wheelchairs or other mobility aids. Please refer to Vantage's wheelchair and handicapped traveler policy

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION:
  • Your ship is your main means of transportation between destinations
  • All land transportation is conducted on board deluxe, air-conditioned motorcoaches
  • In some locations you may ride along uneven or bumpy roads, especially in more rural areas or at historical sites
  • You will have several opportunities to enjoy local modes of transportation: a Singapore trishaw; a Koh Samui minivan safari; 4x4 safari vehicles in Sri Lanka; a Kerala houseboat in Alleppey; a tuk-tuk ride in Porbandar; abra water taxi in Dubai; dhow cruises in the Emirates; and more

CLIMATE:
  • Between Singapore and Amman you will be crossing several different climactic zones. Since you will be in tropical or subtropical regions during the winter and early spring; and in the dry desert climes during the spring; you will be missing the most intense seasons and therefore can expect relatively moderate temperatures
  • There will be some temperature variations so it is important to pack accordingly, and in general plan on dressing in layers.
  • In most of your Southeast Asian destinations the climate is subtropical or tropical, and the farther south you travel, the more abundant the rainfall and high humidity. On the Arabian Peninsula, you will be visiting desert locales where the weather is hot and dry, with little or no rainfall. Evenings are always cooler and often quite pleasant since there is no humidity
  • During your days at sea it can occasionally be windy. A windbreaker, sweater, or light jacket is recommended
  • The sun is strong in all our destinations, so sunscreen, sunglasses, and sun hats are musts
  • Stay cool by wearing lightweight fabrics (such as cotton or linen)
  • For protection from the sun, do as the locals do and cover up by wearing longer pants or skirts, and shirts with sleeves
  • Bring a light rain jacket or umbrella

Please note: Ocean cruising is not the same experience as river cruising; as such, you may experience fluctuating tides and weather patterns that may involve some rocking of your vessel. Itineraries will include all activities as planned except in extreme cases that can’t be controlled by your shipboard crew.

Important: Day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Cruise Director or regional expert.
