A voyage aboard the Six-Star All-Suite Small Ship
m.v. Silver Shadow

Discover vanished civilizations, the legacy of powerful and privileged dynasties, ancient cultures steeped in fantastic mythologies and tranquil philosophies, a blend of colorful customs and some of the world’s great art and architectural treasures hidden amid secluded jungles and idyllic seascapes. From the Malay Peninsula, Singapore, to the dazzling skyline of Hong Kong, fascinating “gateway” to the Orient, this comprehensive and exceptional 11-day voyage is the best way to experience the splendid coastline of Southeast Asia. See the jewels of Vietnam—spectacular sampan-filled harbors, traditional terraced rice paddies, sacred pagodas and vibrant cities.

Cruise aboard the Six-Star Silversea all-Suite m.v. Silver Shadow. Unlike most other vessels, this is truly a Small Ship! And, unlike most other cruise offerings, there are a substantial number of real exclusives and inclusives: Six-Star accommodations are all Suite configurations; there is Free Air* from 43 cities; a $1000 Shipboard Credit** per couple allows you to choose how you will apply it, from select shore excursions to boutique shopping; complimentary wine, spirits and soft drinks are served throughout the ship, including at every lunch and dinner, and replenished in your Suite throughout the cruise; all shipboard Gratuities are included; Port Taxes are included; there is complimentary Butler service at your request; and complimentary fitness classes are available. And, you need to unpack only once!

Explore the precious mosaic of ancient and modern Vietnam. Visit Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital and a romantic blend of old Asian and French heritage. Discover ancient, Imperial Hué, a UNESCO World Heritage site with its own "Forbidden City." Cruise aboard an authentic sailing junk through the mystical Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site, for a truly unforgettable experience. In each port of call—Ha Long Bay, Da Nang, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon)—you can choose to participate in fascinating shore excursions touring up to five UNESCO World Heritage sites and offering unique insights into the culture and history of this splendid country.

Exclusive Singapore Pre-Cruise and Hong Kong Post-Cruise Options are offered also.
