About the cruise holiday: Board the Arcadia in Sydney -- an adults-only ship rated 4 stars by Cruise Critic -- and begin your cruise toward Asia's iconic cities. You'll stop first in Brisbane and Cairns before arriving in scenic Alotau, Papua New Guinea, known for its rainforests and rich marine biodiversity.
Then, it's a week at sea before arriving in Japan; stopping at Kōchi, Osaka and Nagasaki, you'll have time to take in ancient castles, sandy beaches and imposing mountain ranges. Your next port of call is Busan in South Korea -- an attractive city to visit, "surrounded by the ocean on one side, and mountains on the other with hot springs scattered throughout" (Frommer's). It's then onto Shanghai in China, and finally, Hong Kong, where the cruise holiday winds up with a flight back to Sydney.
About the ship: Exclusively for adults, the mid-sized Arcadia "offers a raft of attractive facilities including excellent entertainment and top-notch speciality dining", according to Cruise Critic. It is a 'foodie' ship, with celebrity chef Marco Pierre White’s Ocean Grill restaurant available to guests: by the age of 33, Marco Pierre White had been awarded three Michelin stars, becoming the youngest Briton bestowed with this accolade -- he has been dubbed the "godfather of modern cooking". The Sky Deck offers sweeping views, and guests seeking entertainment can visit The Palladium theatre, the casino, Electra nightclub or The Globe, which offers anything from comedy to live music.
