    DAY 1: Wed 27 March  – Sydney, Australia
    DEPARTS 07:00pm
    Sydney is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city surrounded by golden sand beaches, World Heritage areas, lush national parks and acclaimed wine regions. Sydney owes much of its splendor to its magnificent harbor. Arriving by ship provides an unequaled impression, showing off the city’s famous landmarks: the dramatic white sails of the iconic Opera House and the celebrated Harbor Bridge, looming over the skyline.
     
    DAY 2: Thu 28 March
    Day at sea
     
    DAY 3: Fri 29 March – Brisbane, Australia 
    ARRIVES 09:00am DEPARTS 11:00pm
    Once a harsh penal settlement, Brisbane is now Queensland’s dynamic capital city. A blend of steel and glass defines the skyline, while riverside delights – botanical gardens, promenades, cafes and markets – mesmerize at eye level.
     
    DAY 4: Sat 30 March – Moreton Island, Australia
    ARRIVES 07:00am DEPARTS 05:00pm (tender required)
    At 23 miles long and 72 square miles in area, Moreton is the third-largest sand island in the world. It is part of a sand barrier system that includes the larger Fraser Island, and separates Moreton Bay from the Coral Sea about 27 miles north of Brisbane. Moreton Island National Park encompasses 98 percent of the island, where visitors flock to experience activities such as “sand-tobogganing” down the slopes of 920-foot Mount Tempest, the highest stable coastal sandhill on earth. They also enjoy fishing, kayaking, surfing and snorkeling over the Tangalooma Wrecks offshore. Tangalooma is the largest of four small towns on the island’s west coast. It was an active whaling station from 1952 until 1962. There are no roads on Moreton Island, so visitors get around by 4WD vehicles or ATVs. A popular site to visit is the picturesque red-and-white Cape Moreton lighthouse, built in 1857 and Australia’s oldest. 
     
    DAY 5: Sun 31 March
    Day at sea
     
    DAY 6: Mon 01 April – Hamilton Island, Australia
    ARRIVES 08:00am DEPARTS 05:00pm (tender required)
    Azure sea, white sand and endless sunshine are the appeal of the Whitsunday Islands off the Queensland Coast. Although there are plenty of activities available, perhaps the most compelling reason people come is simply to be here. Reef tours, sightseeing flights, diving, snorkeling and even golf are options.
     
    DAY 7: Tue 02 April – Townsville, Australia
    ARRIVES 08:00am DEPARTS 05:00pm
    The unofficial capital of North Queensland, Townsville is tucked inside the Great Barrier Reef in the northern tropics. Its municipal beach, The Strand, is consistently rated among Australia’s cleanest. Take a ferry to Magnetic Island, an unspoiled UNESCO World Heritage Site just offshore, or visit the Billabong Sanctuary wildlife reserve.
     
    DAY 8: Wed 03 April – Cairns, Australia
    ARRIVES 08:00am DEPARTS 06:00pm
    A cosmopolitan city flanked by pristine rainforests and golden beaches, Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Kuranda, and the Daintree rainforest, a World Heritage protected area. The city was recently renovated to enhance its image and provide a relaxing place for visitors and locals to congregate and have fun. Cairns Esplanade, once a huge grassy park, now features an excellent facility incorporating an outdoor amphitheatre, a sandy swimming lagoon, walking tracks, shops and restaurants, and an environmental interpretation centre.
     
    DAY 9 – 12: Thu 04 – Sun 07 April 
    Days at sea
     
    DAY 13: Mon 08 April – Dili, East Timor
    ARRIVES  08:00am DEPARTS 06:00pm
    Timor is a large, curved island tucked among the Lesser Sunda Islands in the Sunda Sea. The island is divided, as it has been for centuries, with the western half a province of Indonesia and the eastern side an independent nation of Timor-Leste. In the past, these segments were colonies of the Dutch (West) and Portuguese (East). After gaining its independence from Portugal, East Timor was invaded by Indonesia, and descended into 25 years of resistance and war to gain its present state. There are 11 distinct local languages spoken by various ethnic groups on the island. The official languages of East Timor are Tetum and Portuguese. The city’s old colonial section is located near the waterfront, and contains some impressive Portuguese-style buildings including the old Market Hall, now used as a Congressional Centre. Points of interest for visitors include a very good Resistance Museum tracing the struggles of the Falintil insurgents, as well as some examples of indigenous crafts such as textiles, woven mats and pottery. Outside of town, on the Cape Fatucama headland, is a large statue of Cristo Rei, with wonderful views over the sea and the surroundings. One of the island’s best beaches, the Jesus Backside Beach, is located just under the statue. Another display, known as Chega! (Stop!) is housed in the Timor-Leste Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation, an old prison. Timor is renowned for the indigenous textiles and baskets of its various ethnic groups, which you will likely find for sale in the city’s markets and galleries.
     
    DAY 14: Tue 09 April
    Day at sea
     
    DAY 15: Wed 10 April – Komodo Island, Indonesia
    ARRIVES 07:00am DEPARTS 03:00pm (tender required)
    This island national park isn’t the only place the large (up to 10-foot) monitor lizards known as “Komodo Dragons” live. But they are protected here, and flourish as they have in the region for millions of years. Follow your guide and listen carefully to his instructions, because despite their torpid appearance, these giants can really move when they want to, and they apparently aren’t picky about what sort of prey they pursue.
     
    DAY 16: Thur 11 April – Senggigi, Indonesia
    ARRIVES 10:00am DEPARTS 08:00pm (tender required)
    Senggigi is clustered on the verdant shore just behind a blindingly white curve of beach on Bali’s smaller neighbor island of Lombok. Lombok is dominated by looming Mount Rinjani, the second tallest volcano in Indonesia. It is still an active volcano with a lake in its crater and a “new mountain” forming in the lake from recent eruptions. A number of popular touring options from Senggigi include cultural visits to various weaving and handicraft villages, hikes to photogenic waterfalls and boat rides to the fascinating Gilli Islands just offshore. Another option is simply a scenic drive along the coast road with dramatic views, glimpses of quiet kampongs and agricultural activities, vivid green rice fields and lush forests, possibly including a visit to the Pura Batu Bolong Hindu temple set on a headland nearby. For short jaunts, Lombok is served by a large number of horse-drawn carts that make an inexpensive and fun option.
     
    DAY 17 – 18: Fri 12 – Sat 13 April – Benoa (Denpesar), Bali
    ARRIVE 07:00am OVERNIGHT
    Located on the southeastern coast of Bali is the small village of Tanjung Benoa. Still considered a fishing village, Benoa has developed over the past 20 years into a major player in the tourism sector. The calm waters and the beautiful white sand beaches have made Benoa the prime water sport area of Bali. Being a peninsula that is only accessible from one direction, Tanjung Benoa is still relatively quiet with a more relaxed feeling.
     
    DAY 19: Sun 14 April – Komodo Island, Indonesia
    ARRIVE 08:00am DEPART 05:00pm
     
    DAY 20: Mon 15 April 
    Day at sea
     
    DAY 21: Tue 16 April – Celukan Bewang, Bali
    ARRIVE 08:00am DEPART 06:00pm
    In this important port, you may see numbers of the famous high-prowed Bugis schooners, the traditional trading vessels of the archipelago. They carry timber, cement and other goods from Sumatra and Kalimantan. From the port, it’s possible to explore Bali’s natural attractions including the tropical birds and reef fishes at Bali Barat National Park, or the mangrove and monsoon forests of Menjangan Island. Bali’s old capital of Singaraja retains much of its Dutch colonial charms, while traditional villages like Munduk in the highlands, Sawan, where traditional gamelan musical instruments are produced, and Simbaran offer insights into the timeless Balinese culture.
     
    DAY 22: Wed 17 April – Probolinggo, Java
    ARRIVE 08:00am DEPART 05:00pm (tender required)
    East Java highlights include a national park with multiple volcanoes, the 600-foot Madakaripura waterfall and the 14th-century Jabung Buddhist temple cut from glowing red stone. Other options include beaches, river rafting and a wealth of traditional handicrafts.
     
    DAY 23: Thu 18 April – Surabaya, Indonesia
    ARRIVE 08:00am DEPART 05:00pm
    Surabaya is Indonesia’s second-largest city with a population of over 2.7 million (5.6 million in the metropolitan area), and the capital of the province of East Java. Shoppers will enjoy the extensive shopping centers and boutiques throughout the city. Others may wish to take in Bonbin Surabaya, one of the largest zoos in Southeast Asia. Other points of interest include the Grand Mosque of Surabaya (the largest mosque in East Java), the Mpu Tantular Museum of Javanese culture, and the Submarine Monument, also known as Monumen Kapal Selam. City sightseeing buses with English-speaking tour guides are available at the House of Sampoerna museum.
     
    DAY 24: Fri 19 April – Semarang, Java
    ARRIVE 08:00am DEPART 06:00pm
    Semarang is a commercial port located roughly halfway between Jakarta and Surabaya, along Java’s north central coast. Today, many of the island’s most important exports, including tobacco, sugar, rubber, coffee, and cacao are shipped through Semarang. Because of its accessibility to the island’s interior, it is an ideal gateway to numerous coffee plantations and the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site of Borobudur.
