Tokyo, Japan

The world’s largest metropolitan area, Tokyo is an unforgettable experience for everyone. Tour the best ramen and sushi restaurants, visit Akihabara Electric Town to discover cutting-edge gadgets and games, and scale the Tokyo City View—a breathtaking observation deck on the 52nd floor of Mori Tower. For a change of pace, visit the Meiji Shrine to take a serene stroll along the many walking paths.

Osaka (Kyoto), Japan

Two amazing cities, one unforgettable journey; that’s what to expect on your travels through Osaka and Kyoto. Take an underwater adventure through the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan and stroll through the shōtengai shopping arcades. Then travel to nearby Kyoto to discover 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Temple of the Peaceful Dragon, the Kiyomizu-Dera Temple, and the Nijo-Jo samurai castle.

Takamatsu

Combine thousands of years of history with fantastic food and you have the vibrant city of Takamatsu, Japan. Explore Tamamo-koen Park to discover ruins, Japanese-style turrets, and more. Then visit a thatched-roof tea house to try matcha, a powdered green tea. Finally, be sure to sample Sanuki udon—a famous noodle dish—after enjoying an afternoon shopping and visiting the new waterfront.

Hiroshima

While it’s impossible to forget that Hiroshima was the site of the first atomic blast on August 6, 1945, this modern city has emerged as a thriving and vibrant port. Even still, no visit would be complete without a trip to the Peace Memorial Park. Step further back in time to visit the castle of Hiroshima-Jo, and be sure to try the city’s most famous dish, okonomiyaki, a delicious savory pancake.

Kitakyushu

Kitakyushu is best seen from the seaside promenade at Moji Port, with its shops, restaurants, and more. Stop by the Moji Customs Building and tour the art gallery inside, or head to the top of the Mojiko Retro Observation Room for great views of the city. Up for an eclectic adventure? Visit the Toto Toilet Museum. And foodies, be sure to try popular noodle dishes like tonkatsu ramen and yaki-udon.

Beijing

A blend of ancient, Colonial, and modern influences, Tianjin is an engaging city. With Beijing a short ride away via high speed train, it's the gateway to the wonders of China. Avant-garde Olympic venues are juxtaposed with the backdrop of the Great Wall, and the Forbidden City's treasures are now on full display.

Dalian

Sandy beaches, scenic coastal drives, and tree-lined streets create a relaxed atmosphere in this storied Northern Chinese port city. A laid-back reprieve from busier Chinese destinations, Dalian offers tranquil city escapes, with plenty of history around every corner. Head to Russian street, where things a little more like Moscow than Northern China.

Shanghai
Head to the spectacular Shanghai Museum on the People’s Square to see ancient artifacts. Or wander Shanghai’s most iconic street, the Bund, where classic art deco buildings and the high-end stores of the French Concession almost make you think you’re in Paris. Explore modern architectural wonders like the Oriental Pearl Tower and Shanghai Tower, the second tallest building in the world.
Hong Kong
With 1,200+ skyscrapers, Hong Kong is a vertical city, so for great skyline views, take a tram to the top of Victoria Peak. Better still, hop on the tram between Kennedy Town and Shau Kei Wan for a cost-effective city tour. Head to Central for the world’s longest outdoor escalator system and the incredible nightlife of Lan Kwai Fong. For a much quieter day, take a ferry to Lamma or Lantau Island.

With AzAmazing Evenings, we take that concept a step further. Each private, bespoke AzAmazing Evenings event delivers authentic travel moments that bring you closer to your destination, its culture and its people. Best of all, one is included with our compliments on all cruises except transatlantic crossings and voyages that are less than seven nights long.

SO MANY thank you’s for turning a magnificent cruise into an extraordinary cruise!!! The touches you added, as we wandered through those beautiful islands, were ALL very special, thoughtful and so appropriate BUT, they also take many, many hours to plan, organize and implement (let alone transfer across the Pacific!!!) Thank you for it ALL! Jamesie

On the Vancouver Sun 100th Anniversary Cruise Cruise Connections has been such a wonderfully valuable partner to us. We could not have done this without Cruise Connections and the help of Sanjay and his staff. They are so customer focused. They really viewed us as the customers on this trip, so anytime something had to be dealt with, something needs to be done they were quick to act. Putting an event of this magnitude, the complexities that come with putting on a 7 day cruise – you can do all the planning you want, sure you can’t plan for every scenario. They did a wonderful job of upfront planning and looking after all the details but when things need to be addressed on the spot, they were there, they were quick to act. And hopefully, that was evident with our passengers. They were there every step along the way. This could not have happened without that kind of dedication from Cruise Connections. They are very customer focused and very customer oriented which I think is a must on this business. Kevin Bent | Former Publisher and President of The Vancouver Sun

It was so nice meeting you and becoming part of the Cruise Connections family. We can’t wait to do our next Presidents cruise with YOU! Thank you for making our 30th wedding anniversary memorable and the absolute BEST!!! Thank you for making our dreams come true!! Kim and John Carlsen

Thank you for your generous hospitality on our recent Tahiti cruise. You paid attention to, and dealt with, a lot of detail, and it made the trip very enjoyable for us. It was exceptional, adding to the best cuisine and comfort on board the ship. Arnie Funk

Thanks again for a wonderful trip. Everything far exceeded our expectations! The cocktail parties and dinner were so much fun as well. Margaret Churcher

See Japan as it was meant to be seen – up close & personal, in breathtaking detail. 3 full-days touring through Tokyo, Hakone, & Kyoto will leave you awesomely inspired for your upcoming cruise journey. Prestigious harbour-side accommodations await you at the ‘Intercontinental Tokyo Bay’ Hotel. From there, you’ll be whisked away to indulge in Tokyo’s finest temples, shrines, parks & pavilions – a full-day tour of old Tokyo. Zoom into a not-so-distant past as you enjoy sushi, sake, and even a calligraphy lesson in a hands-on, dynamic session. Then, UNESCO certified sites will mystify you during guided tours through Hakone & Kyoto. A fully conceived tour of ancient Japan is the perfect start to an epic Asian voyage.

Your cruise voyage may be finished, but the Asian adventure has only just begun. Go deep into the storied world of Hong Kong & Macau while experiencing some of the most lavish accommodations imaginable. With the famous ‘Intercontinental Hong Kong’ as your harbour-side launching pad, you’ll bask in the richness of Old Hong Kong on a full guided tour – from a Sampan ride through the Aberdeen Fishing town, to a masterfully prepared local lunch at a Jumbo floating VIllage. Macau is just a ferry ride away, along with it’s historic temples, towers and piers. A completely organized tour of one of the world’s most historic ports awaits you.
