With summer vacations fast approaching, if you are still floundering for destinations, look no further! Here’s our roundup of the top three cruises from Hong Kong, which check all the right boxes of comfort, luxury, service and hospitality.
Whether you dream of island hopping or jumping into oceans, the Norwegian Jewel gives guests a free hand to customise their ideal cruise holiday as per unique preferences. Offering an impressive selection of 16 restaurants, guests will have the joy of trying cuisines from all around the world. Follow with a tipple or two at one of the 15 bars and be entertained by world-class acrobatics and artistry.
For that added touch of luxury, opt for The Haven, a luxury enclave with suites, private pool, dining and personal butlers. Norwegian Jewel will soon be back for its second season, fresh from a multimillion dollar refurbishment in December 2018 and will consist of exciting itineraries including Australia and New Zealand to name just a few.

Seven Seas Voyager
Fresh from a complete refurbishment, Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Seven Seas Voyager now boasts 375 suite accommodations, premium dining options, state-of-the-art wellness programmes and many more. The seven different onboard restaurants are a major draw for guests, who can choose from the European-style Compass Rose and Prime 7, the steakhouse to Le Veranda, the breakfast destination. Guests will be in no shortage of entertainment abroad this vessel, thanks to the Constellation Theatre where you can appreciate a full-scale musical production or cabaret show, while sipping your favourite cocktail! One of the world’s most luxurious spas, the Canyon Ranch®, also offers an array of therapeutic services like aromatherapy, Ayurveda and seaweed treatments. For more, visit www.rssc.com
One of Oceania Cruises’ smaller offerings is Nautica, a ship that more than makes up in luxury what it lacks in size! Accommodating less than 700 guests, this rather compact ship can surely be described as a microcosm of sheer luxury. Attention to details is evident in every nook and corner of this piece of floating opulence. From multi-cuisine restaurants where special sommeliers are assigned to take you through the fine nuances of oil and vinegar pairings to Versace dinnerware and Broadway-style shows, it’s the small touches of true-blue lavishness that sets this ship apart. Try your luck at the casino or soak in a hot water bubble massage while watching the Northern Lights or taking in the view of an unspoilt Mediterranean coastline. Offering voyages through Asia, South Africa, Europe and Scandinavia – with departures from Hong Kong, Nautica is sure to be the vessel of choice for those looking to combine the best of travel and luxury!
