Set sail in a new direction with our custom itinerary between two of the world’s most iconic cities – Hong Kong and Tokyo – both wonders on their own and the perfect endpoints to an extraordinary experience.
There’s no better place to begin than in the legendary port of Hong Kong, a truly unique city of endless wonder, diversity, and sheer innovation. From the skyscrapers towering over the harbor to densely packed streets lined with alluring shops to endless mouthwatering temptations, this gleaming city sets the stage for a stunning adventure yet to come.
Ten days later, you’ll arrive in the futuristic city of Tokyo, the heart of Japanese culture and style, where ancient traditions and history blend into modern daily life. From stores showcasing advanced technology to Michelin-starred restaurants to the Imperial Palace’s tranquil gardens, it’s a city full of contrasts at every turn.
After our first relaxing day at sea, your journey begins with a full day and night in the capital city of Taipei, rich in history and filled with temptations from tantalizing street food to mountainside hot springs. Visit an ornate dragon-adorned temple or soar up to the top of Taipei 101 before heading out to explore the city’s seriously fun and diverse gay nightlife during our overnight stay.
You’ll need another day to rest and relax at sea before we dock in the heart of China’s largest city for 24 hours of pure excitement. Few cities have as much to offer in visual and cultural wonders as Shanghai. Take in the city’s soaring skyline from the Bund, explore the charming shops and restaurants in the French Quarter, and marvel at the sheer scale of virtually everything in the world’s fastest moving city.
From the bustle of Shanghai, we’ll sail to the serenely beautiful city of Kochi, our first stop in Japan where clear rivers meet green forests in a region known for its abundant natural beauty. Our next day in Osaka offers plenty of time to explore Japan’s third largest city as well as tours to the legendary temples and awe-inspiring history of Kyoto.
Finally, under the magnificent spectacle of Mt. Fuji, we explore the charming city of Shimizu, the perfect stop to explore one of the world’s greatest natural icons.
You’ll sail with 2300 friends from around the world on the stunning Norwegian Jewel for the ultimate cruise through Asia. Fresh from a multi-million-dollar upgrade, Jewel features a fantastic spacious central pool deck, with incredible open spaces for dancing under the sun and stars. You’ll love her innovative modern look, enticing restaurants, full-service spa, and spectacular performance venues.
While we sail between these amazing ports, there’s plenty to do onboard to keep you entertained, from daytime pool games to our festive afternoon T-dances. Take in an afternoon game of bingo, indulge in a leisurely brunch or a playful game of volleyball, or just find a quiet deck chair. When you’re ready to soothe yourself after a long day of touring, drop into the spectacular spa with every imaginable treatment along with one of the largest and most complete fitness centers at sea.
You’ll marvel to stellar entertainers from around the world including our own unique gay circus show, Broadway singers, world-famous drag performers, and so much more. We’ll even invite a special guest or two from Broadway, TV, or beyond. Past years have featured Patti LuPone, Idina Menzel, Kathy Griffin, Jennifer Hudson, Chita Rivera, Deborah Cox, and so many others.
And that’s just the beginning with a ship packed with performances by Atlantis comedians, cabaret stars, drag performers, piano bar entertainers, and other original shows. There’s nothing like it on any continent!
