Following a flight from London, the trip begins in Sydney with a 2-night stay at the Art Deco Metro Hotel on Pitt. The hotel is surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants, and a 20-minute walk (or 10-minute Metro journey) from Circular Quay, for the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Following the stay, you'll board Norwegian Jewel. From Sydney, you'll head up the east coast to the laid-back city of Newcastle in the Hunter Valley wine region.
Next, you'll sail to Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, and Airlie Beach, the gateway to the stunning Whitsunday Islands.
Norwegian Jewel continues north to Cairns, where you can explore the rainforest or learn more about Aboriginal history, and then Darwin, one of Australia's most northerly cities.
From Darwin, you'll cross to Indonesia for stops in Komodo (home of the Komodo dragon); Bali, which Frommer's calls a "physical paradise and a place of almost mystic spirituality… one of the most beautiful places on earth"; and Semerang in the north.
The final stop is Singapore, where you'll disembark for a 2-night stay at the boutique Naumi Liora hotel, in Chinatown. In Singapore, we recommend visiting the Night Safari, the world's first nocturnal zoo, and going for a Singapore sling at Raffles Hotel.
Features on Norwegian Jewel include the Stardust Theatre, a spa, a sports court, a fitness centre and 13 bars -- the Bliss Ultra Lounge and Shakers Martini & Cocktail Bar are always popular.
There are also plenty of dining options. As well as two main dining rooms, there is also the Italian-themed La Cucina, Moderno Brazilian steakhouse and the Teppanyaki Room for Japanese cuisine (supplements apply).
