It’s plan a cruise month this October 2017. Each week will have a different destination theme, week 4 is Asia, so please read on and discover Cruise Club UK’s top cruise tips, including staff top tips too.
For those who are yet to cruise it can be a challenge on where to start looking and what suits your needs. Here we aim to provide you with the best tips to get the most out of your dream cruise:
Cosmopolitan cities await in the Far East, most cruise lines starting points for the Far East start in Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Beijing, Bali and Shanghai. You will find most cruise lines offer a pre cruise stay in the above cities, giving you the opportunity to explore and experience the sights, sounds and delights of the city.
Far East cruise season is November to March
Bathroom facilities vary from Country to Country, most of us will know from holidaying in Greece where you put the toilet paper in a bin! In the Far East ‘squat toilets’ are common, best advice is to wait for a toilet break until your near hotels where the facilities will be Westernised.
Check visa requirements before booking your cruise
Some port to city transfers can be long. Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok are approx. 3 hours
If you’re looking for adventure then cruise excursions offer the perfect way to experience rainforests, plus much more
Looking for a Castaway Experience?
Visiting the Indian Ocean will take in the stunning islands of the Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Maldives, India and Mauritius plus many more. You won’t find skyscrapers here, instead you’ll discover an authentic charm, swaying palms and turquoise lagoons
Most cruise lines visiting this area tend to be the smaller ships as it’s much easier for them to navigate
