The ship will also offer the 15-day “Java, Bali & the Barrier Reef”, a winter cruise from Singapore to Cairns, Australia, taking in the Borobudur UNESCO World Heritage site in Semarang and frontier Cooktown, only recently connected to the rest of Australia by road. Other ports of call for the vessel include Brunei, Sandakan and Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia’s Sabah state, where a Heritage Village is preserving the fast-disappearing tribal cultures of Borneo.
