Here are 6 cruises around Southeast Asia to embark on and they’re all round trips from Singapore!  

1. 3D/2N Malaysian Peninsula

There’s no better way to explore Malaysia than embarking on a world-class cruise that stops by the vibrant cities of Kuala Lumpur and George Town, Penang. Sailing to each city on Princess Cruises will only take less than a day, and there are tons of exciting excursions to join at both destinations!

If you’re an adventure seeker, make sure to sign up for a Penang shore excursion! Take your pick from a few options – where you’ll get to explore Penang’s UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town, and many fascinating attractions such as the Baba Nyonya Mansion, which showcases the Peranakan lifestyle and traditions; Kek Lok Si, the largest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia, and even explore an eclectic market or go on an eco-tour.

If you enjoy a fine balance between exploration and relaxation, a cruise to Vietnam and Thailand is just what you need.

Each locale will have its own shore excursion consisting of activities which range from venturing around the city to spending a relaxing day with nature.

Alternatively, you could unwind on board Princess Cruises. Visit the Lotus Spa for a rejuvenating massage and pedicure session, or de-stress and stretch your body at a zumba or yoga class on the deck. Alternatively, spoil yourself with a visit to The Sanctuary, a luxurious adults-only retreat onboard where you’ll get to lounge with soothing music and a mojito in hand.

From the lively Ubud to strolling along the tranquil shores of Phi Phi Island, you’ll get to explore and make the most out of your trip at each destination.

Considering how you’ll be out and about for more than a week, you’ll want to stay fit and make sure you have the stamina to keep up with each adventure.
