Far East Cruise Port Highlights


Singapore is a small city-state, home to some of the world's most stunning architecture and tropical landscaping. Immerse yourself in all it has to offer by heading over to the Singapore Botanic Gardens that house more than 5,000 plant species and a rich variety of birds and butterflies. Next, take a short drive to the ‘Gardens By The Bay’ to walk along the colossal solar-powered supertrees. Just a stone's throw away is the iconic Marina Bay Sands which is home to the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool. You can take in the city skyline when you climb to the 57th floor. And, of course, no trip to Singapore would be complete without trying some of the scrumptious food at one of the many Hawker Streets, where you can try everything from traditional Singaporean dishes to more international cuisine! 

Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo is a city of contrasts. It is both modern and ancient, with towering skyscrapers next to centuries-old, historic temples. At the Sensō-ji Temple (also known as Asakusa Kannon), you can observe Buddhist and Shinto customs and even participate in traditional Japanese ceremonies. Into anime? Check out the Ghibli Museum, a wonderland of Hayao Miyazaki's greatest works. Just 30 minutes away, you can shop or even people-watch the trendy dressers at Harajuku.

You will find plenty of shops stocked with outlandish fashions and tons of themed cafes to enjoy a tasty treat. If you're planning a cruise to Japan, one of the best times to go is during cherry blossom season. The season typically runs from late March to early April, and the blossoms are one of Japan's most famous symbols. Tokyo, in particular, is a great city to see the cherry blossoms, as there are many parks and gardens where they can be enjoyed. One of the most popular spots is Ueno Park, home to over 1,000 cherry trees.
