PACING:

This trip is moderate paced.

  • Your 60-day expedition cruise tour includes 50 nights onboard the 5-star Ocean Explorer; plus Deluxe hotel stays for 7 nights total in Hong Kong, Phnom Penh, Luxor, and Amman. (The 60 days includes the day you depart from home and your overnight flight, plus the day you depart for home.)
  • Over the course of 60 days you'll visit 30 ports of call in 14 different countries. Sightseeing is usually offered in half-day tours, with time to relax every day.
  • There are 14 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 but you will be on your feet for an hour or two at a time.
  • Most city sightseeing takes place on air-conditioned coaches with guides.
  • There are several walking tours through 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 cruisetour 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.
  • Be advised that the Ocean Explorer does not have an elevator. Please let our Reservations Specialist know when reserving if you require the use of an elevator so that they can work with you to select an alternative tour.

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: Hong Kong Sampan and tram rides; a cruise boat and electric cart in Vietnam; a cyclo in Phnom Penh; 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; a horse-drawn carriage in Petra; and more.

CLIMATE:

  • Between Hong Kong and Amman, Jordan, you will be crossing several different climactic zones. In general it will be quite warm, with average daily high temperatures in the mid-to upper 80s and low- to mid-90s. The coolest daily high spring temperatures may be likely in Amman (around 73˚F.) Evenings are typically 5-10 degrees lower in most locations.
  • 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.
