Day 1: Fly to Manila.
Day 2 Manila, Philippines: On arrival, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure.
Day 3 Manila/Cruise: At leisure before you are transferred to the port to board the Silversea Silver Spirit. The ship remains in Manila, so if you don’t wish to spend time familiarising yourself with all the wonderful onboard facilities, you can step back ashore to explore.
Day 4 Manila, Philippines: With the ship staying in Manila for most of the day, why not book an optional shore excursion? Options include exploring the history, architecture and landmarks of Intramuros; visiting Corregidor Island; discovering modern Manila; and an exciting visit to the Pagsanjan River.
Day 5 At sea: Take the opportunity to top up your tan by the pool or, perhaps indulge at Zagara Beauty Spa.
Day 6 Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines: There’s a raft of natural wonders to explore - from diving hotspots to towering limestone cliffs, and the entrancing underworld of Puerto Princesa’s stunning underground river, complete with a cavernous, sunken lagoon.
Day 7 Sandakan, Sabah, Borneo: This historic city is best placed for seeing some of Borneo’s most accessible wildlife attractions, including the celebrated Sepilok orang- utan sanctuary.
Day 8 At sea: Spend time at Tor’s Observation Library, a quiet space for reading and reflection while being dazzled by the undulating seascapes.
Day 9 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo: Wedged between a tropical rainforest and the South China Sea, Kota Kinabalu is a launching point for venturing off and seeing the surrounding jungle and marine life. Optional excursions include UNESC abalu or a Klias Wetlands river safari.
Day 10 Bandar Seri Begawan (Muara), Brunei: Just a short transfer brings you from Muara to the capital of Brunei, a neat modern city. Highlights include the ‘old’ sector, which is being redeveloped with new buildings around the Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque; the Seri Complex, a commercial area dating from the 1970s; and Gadong, which boasts shops and restaurants.
Day 11 At sea: Retreat to the pool deck and laze on a chaise longue in the sun or shade. Alternatively, the well- equipped fitness centre helps you keep in shape.
Day 12 Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo: Surrounded by blossoming nature reserves where rusty-coloured orang- utans swing freely through the trees, and the world’s largest flowers sprawl across the ground, Kuching is a city of culture, natural beauty and uninhibited wonder.
Day 13 At sea: Browse the boutiques where you’ll find a selection of cutting-edge fashions, jewellery, accessories, cosmetics and fragrances, all at duty-free prices.
Day 14 Singapore: Step ashore and stroll around the Central Business District where skyscrapers tower over colonial buildings, including Raffles Hotel.
