Setting sail from Cairns
Cairns is a buzzing tourist hub, gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. A snorkelling trip out to the reef is the most obvious excursion to take here, but other options include riding the Skyrail cableway over the rainforest canopy or swimming in the croc-free saltwater lagoon.
Australia: Cape York
Indonesia: Asmat Region
Indonesia: Kai Archipelago
The Kai Archipelago, part of the Maluku islands, is known for its idyllic beaches. The ancestors of the Kai people are believed to have come here from Bali, but there is no written history, with an oral tradition of stories known as Tom-Tad that are passed down from generation to generation.
Indonesia: Banda Islands
Indonesia: Pulau Lihaga, Pulau Saronde
Philippines: El Nido (Palawan)
El Nido, in the northwest of Palawan province, is the gateway to the spectacular Bacuit archipelago. Dramatic jungle-covered peaks, karst cliffs and pristine beaches draw intrepid travellers to this remote corner of the Philippines, along with the incredibly clear waters, perfect for snorkelling.
Arriving in Manila
Manila is a sprawling conglomeration of soaring skyscrapers, faded colonial facades and ramshackle slums, and it's certainly not everyone's cup of tea. But if you have the stamina and an inquisitive nature, there is plenty to be enjoyed in the Philippines' boisterous capital, including the world's oldest Chinatown, the historic walled city of Intramuros and the shopping malls of Makati. Grab some respite in Rizal Park, or explore the remarkable Chinese Cemetery, where Manila's wealthiest Chinese citizens are laid to rest in lavish mausoleums, complete with chandeliers, kitchens and air-conditioning!
Intramuros, Manila’s old Spanish centre, is a great place to escape the madness of the rest of Manila.

What we love
The muted natural tones that make up the modern and minimalist interior of these excellent small ships are enhanced by playful splashes of colour which creates some of the most stylish ships we've seen. The accommodation is flexible; staterooms can be combined to create expansive suites and the restaurants live up to the outstanding gastronomic reputation that you'd expect from a French flag cruise line.
