MS CALEDONIAN SKY, ASIA AS YOU’VE NEVER CRUISED IT BEFORE

Inline images 1

CRUISECO have a range of unique new cruise-holidaying opportunities in Asia in 2013 for those wanting to go that step further, by passing the crowds and glitzy entertainment in favour of a 114-passenger luxury expedition vessel whose  emphasis is on spacious accommodations, fine dining, and shore excursions with naturalists, historians, ecologists, botanists, ornithologists or marine biologists.

These holidays are on the MS Caledonian Sky that was previously known as Hebridean Spirit, and whose operators have had twenty years experience in taking guests off the beaten track to learn more of the world around them.

Between March and October 2013, MS Caledonian Sky will sail 14-nights from the Coral Sea to the Spice Islands,15-nights circumnavigating Borneo, 12-nights through the South and East China Seas, do three 10-night cultural discovery tours of Japan and Korea, and make a 14-night circumnavigation of Sumatra.

Because of her size, the refurbished MS Caledonian Sky will be able to take guests into remote and often little-known areas inaccessible to traditional cruise ships. And on board, rather than Cruise Directors leading lavish entertainment programs, Caledonian Sky will have Expedition Leaders sharing their knowledge of local areas and later leading forays ashore, fine dining indoors or on deck with wines included at lunch and dinner, and spacious and luxurious cabins.

As an example, the 14-night Coral Sea and Spice Islands cruise departs 15 March 2013 and when booked by 31 May, prices start from only $7,299pp twin-share, that include a generous savings of $790pp. Balcony cabins begin from $9,359pp twin-share, also offering an outstanding savings of $1,590pp. Air travel is additional.

Prices also include select shore excursions, gratuities to crew and whilst on excursions, transfers per cruise itinerary and port taxes.
