Cruising: You Will Sail Through Uncharted Waters
Traditionally, cruise lines have focused on the Western Hemisphere, but increasingly they’re setting their course for the Far East. Burma has popped up on itineraries from lines including Silversea and Azamara Club Cruises. Orient-Express is adding a second ship on the Irrawaddy River: the 50-guest Orcaella was designed for the shallower river reaches north of Mandalay. Ships from Uniworld, Viking, and, in 2014, Aqua Expeditions will sail through Vietnam and Cambodia on the Mekong River, with visits to Ho Chi Minh City and the temples of Angkor Wat. Crystal Cruises will offer sailings to the lush Malaysian island of Langkawi, and SeaDream Yacht Club will visit southern Thailand and Java, Indonesia.
