Ports of call in Southeast Asia and China are known for their array of food, shopping and colonial influences. Mix spicy native dishes with gourmet fare as you pick up souvenirs at both local markets and designer outlets.
Ho Chi Minh City

Ships pulling into the city formerly known as Saigon dock at Phu My on the South China Sea, about 2.5 hours from the city (smaller ships may come up the Saigon River and dock closer). The largest city in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City is the gateway to the Mekong Delta and is known for its French colonial architecture. The language is Vietnamese, and the currency is the dong, although US dollars are often accepted and sometimes preferred.
Hong Kong

Cosmopolitan Hong Kong is brimming with international shopping and dining options to keep you busy during your day in port. Cruises dock at Ocean Terminal in Victoria Harbor, located on the southwestern edge of the Kowloon Peninsula. Chinese and English are the official languages, and while Hong Kong is technically part of China, it has its own currency, the Hong Kong dollar.


Ships visiting China’s largest city dock at one of two locations – the Shanghai Port International Cruise Terminal located in Hongkou District near downtown, or the Wusong International Cruise Terminal, about 24 miles from downtown. The official language is Mandarin Chinese, and the currency is the Yuan.  Shore excursions include day trips to the villages of Suzhou and Zhouzhuang and tours of Jade Buddha Temple.


With its mix of world-class shopping and dining, neighborhoods like Little India and Chinatown, sizzling street food, and the family-friendly beaches and activities of Sentosa Island, multi-cultural Singapore truly offers something for every cruiser on your ship. Cruises dock at the Singapore Cruise Center or Marina Bay Cruise Center. The currency is the Singapore dollar, and its four languages are English, Mandarin, Malay and Tamil.
