EMBRACE UNIQUE SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE FROM AUSTRALIA THROUGH ASIA IN 2012

CRUISECO has a fascinating series of fly/cruise packages aboard the 4-star small ship Spirit of Adventure in Asia in 2012 that have no added costs for shore excursions, because with Spirit of Adventure there's a choice of guided shore tours included at all ports of call.

Carrying a maximum of just 412-guests, the 9,570-tonne mini-liner also includes a program of lectures by experts in a diverse field from archaeology and history to the arts, culture and cuisine, with these experts often joining the half- or full-day port excursions with local English-speaking guides.

Cruiseco has a choice of eight fly/cruise packages between January and May 2012 on Spirit of Adventure as she journeys from Australia to Kota Kinabalu in Borneo, Hong Kong, and back through South-east Asia to India, across to Dubai, and from there to Aqaba in Jordan.

Prices begin from as low as  $3874 twin-share for a 14-night fly/cruise package from Port Kelang in Malaysia on March 19 2012 to Phuket, the Andaman Islands, Sri Lanka, and Kochi, Mangalore and Mumbai in India.

This includes return air and taxes from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide, the 14-night cruise with all onboard dining, gratuities and daily excursions.
