17 Night Cruise sailing from Singapore to Dubai aboard Azamara Quest.

This voyage balances relaxation and exploration nicely with five days at sea, two maiden calls, and three overnight stays.

It’s our first visit to sleepy, unspoiled Sabang, where the main attraction is diving, snorkeling, swimming and soaking up gorgeous scenery at beaches lapped by turquoise seas. Swim along a reef, then fill up on curry noodles at a beachside cafe. Hambantota is the gateway to three pristine national parks with astounding biodiversity and wildlife including leopards, sambar deer, elephants and flamingos. With an overnight in Colombo, there’s no need to choose between the famous elephant orphanage and ancient Kandy, where Buddha’s tooth is said to be housed in a sacred temple.

Giant fishing nets and colonial architecture are hallmarks of Cochin, where you can take a boat ride through the peaceful Kerala backwaters. You’ll be rested for Mumbai, where old meets new in giant shopping bazaars, grand architecture, and the buzz of Bollywood. Pay homage to a turning point in history and the person who made it happen at Gandhi’s birthplace. Then sail to Muscat, a beautifully preserved old city with splendid beaches, traditional old souks and nearby mountain forts.

Highlights of this cruise:

Singapore, Singapore
Chinese, Malay and Indian traditions meld in this island-state at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. The site of the world's busiest port, Singapore offers the Mustafa Centre, a 24-hour mall and Sunte, the world's largest fountain. Play evening golf on lighted fairways; experience the nightlife on Mohamed Sultan Road; or relax at an outdoor spa. Be certain not to miss the savory seafood.

Colombo
Sri Lanka was once known as Serendib, origin of the word serendipity, an apt description for the pleasant surprises certain to pop up as you explore this gem of an island with everything to offer: white beaches, lush tropical forests, fragrant gardens of cinnamon and clove, and a long and equally spicy history.

From Colombo, the capital, you can meet the gang at the elephant orphanage, take a trip to Kandy to visit a temple purported to house a tooth of the Buddha, or check out village life on a bicycle.

Don’t forget to take some of the excellent tea home with you, a product for which the island became world famous under yet another name: Ceylon.

Dubai
Dubai can already be mistaken for a movie set featuring a futuristic metropolis, and there are big plans still in the works. In the middle of the desert where almost nothing existed 20 years ago, there are so many building projects that foreign construction crews vastly outnumber citizens.

Everything is the biggest, tallest, and the first of its kind, including manmade islands shaped like palm trees and the world’s first underwater hotel.

It’s a striking collection of styles, including modern interpretations of Islamic architecture. And if the planet’s largest shopping mall doesn’t appeal, traditional souks do still exist, including a gold souk housing over 200 retail shops.
