Day 1: Fly to Singapore.
Day 2 Singapore: On arrival, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. Why not head out to lively Clarke Quay where you can dine alfresco or enjoy some shopping along Orchard Road.
Days 3-4 Singapore: Two full days to explore at your leisure. Top attractions include the incredible Gardens by the Bay, the Singapore Flyer, Singapore Zoo, Chinatown and Little India. Also not to be missed is a visit to the iconic Raffles Hotel for an obligatory Singapore Sling. If time allows why not take the cable car across to Sentosa Island where an array of attractions can be found.
Day 5 Singapore/Cruise: This afternoon you will be transferred to the port to board Voyager of the Seas.
Day 6 Penang, Malaysia: A fascinating fusion of east and west, Penang is the best known of Malaysia's beach destinations. The island's capital Georgetown is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and while it's easy to explore on foot, you could hop on one of the many rickshaws for a sedate journey around the maze of streets. For some outstanding views climb the steps to the amazing Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery or visit the Penang Tropical Butterfly Farm to see thousands of gorgeous butterflies. Whilst here, don't miss the opportunity to try out some of Penang's tasty street food before taking a stroll along the golden sands.
Day 7 Phuket, Thailand: Aptly named the Jewel in the Andaman Sea, Phuket is home to majestic mountains, rainforests and some glorious beaches with turquoise waters ideal for swimming or snorkelling.
Optional excursions are available to enchanting Phi Phi Island, or you can discover exciting sea caves by canoe, trek to the hilltop Big Buddha for some breathtaking views or, of course, you may prefer to laze on the beach and soak up the Thai sun.
Day 8 At sea: A full day at sea to sit back, kick of your shoes and put your feet up. Perhaps you'll simply opt to lounge by the pool or enjoy a relaxing beauty treatment in the spa. If you're feeling energetic, why not take a turn around the ice rink; work up a sweat at the fully-equipped fitness centre or play the 18 hole mini golf course and enjoy spectacular views between shots.
Day 9 Singapore: All too soon it's time to bid farewell to new friends. Disembark and transfer to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure to relax.
