Day to Day Itinerary:

Day 1-2: Dublin to Singapore:   5* Hotel Overnight.

After your overnight flight to Singapore, you will be transferred to the 5* hotel for your one-night stay before your cruise.

The main island of Singapore is shaped like a flattened diamond, 42 km (26 miles) east to west and 23 km (14 miles) north to south. Near the northern peak is the causeway leading to West Malaysia—Kuala Lumpur is less than four hours away by car. It is at the southern foot where you will find most of the city-state’s action, with its gleaming office towers, working docks, and futuristic “supertrees,” which are solar-powered and serve as vertical gardens.

Day 3: Singapore:   Depart  17.00

This morning, after breakfast at your hotel, you will be collected and transferred to the dock to board the Silver Muse. You will have the day to settle in and have a taste of the facilities on board or further explore Singapore before the ship departs in the evening.

Day 4: Day At Sea:

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.

Day 5: Jakarta, Indonesia:    Arrive 08.00   Depart 18.00

Glittering skyscrapers of commerce dwarf the tiny fruit stalls that hum with bartering in Jakarta, a sprawling, futuristic city of juxtaposition and contrast. Take a deep breath before stepping onto the streets of Indonesia’s capital city – where you’ll be immediately confronted by a dazzling cacophony of activity and kineticism, as you explore a vast city of endless layers. Swarms of vehicles rule the roads, but be brave and you’ll discover a city of immense character and colour.

Day 6: Karimunjawa, Indonesia:    Arrive  12.00   Depart  23.00

This idyllic location, established in 1999 under Swedish management and ownership, is located on one of the 27 tropical islands in the Karimunjawa archipelago. Covered by coconut trees and surrounded by white sandy beaches, Menyawakan Island lies some 64 nautical miles off Java’s coast. This tranquil and secluded setting attracts discerning guests who appreciate the tropical and laid back ambiance.

Day 7-8: Semarang, Java, Indonesia:   Arrive  08.00   Overnight   Depart  23.00

Semarang is one of the oldest cities in Indonesia, situated on Java’s north coast between the shore of the Java Sea and a small ridge of mountains. Ceded to the Dutch West India Company in 1677 by King Amangkurat I in payment of his debts, it became their headquarters and the seat of the Dutch governor of the northeast provinces. Semarang’s usefulness as a port waned due to the gradual silting up of the harbor; by the 19th century, Surabaya had eclipsed Semarang as Java’s premier port.

Day 9: Day at Sea:

Day 10: Lembar, Lombok, Indonesia:    Arrive  08.00   Depart 19.00

An island of startling contradictions and contrasts, Lombok exudes an aura of the staid and the rural, a genteel way of life in a quiet backwater. Located to the east and across a deep strait from its illustrious neighbor Bali, the island of Lombok offers unique culture, beautiful landscapes and a far less frenetic, pressured atmosphere than Bali. However, savvy travelers agree that Lombok’s calm existence may soon come to an end, as it is fast becoming the new “in place” after Bali.

Day 11: Bali, Indonesia:    Arrive 08.00

On arrival in Bali, after you disembark the cruise ship you will be met at the port and transferred to the airport for your flight home to Ireland.

Bali really is as alluring as everyone says. This island, slightly bigger than Delaware, has it all: beaches, volcanoes, terraced rice fields, forests, renowned resorts, surfing, golf, and world-class dive sites. But what sets Bali apart from other nearby tropical destinations is Balinese tradition, and villagers dedicated to celebrating it. The hundreds of temples, dances, rituals, and crafts linked to their ancient Hindu faith aren’t a show for tourists, but a living, breathing culture in which visitors are warmly received by the Balinese, who cherish their own identities.

1-night in a 5* Singapore hotel pre-cruise (call for details).

8-nights on board the Ultra-Luxury Silver Muse, operated by Silversea.
