Singapore
Departs at 5:00 PM
Singapore is small in size but big on excitement. Discover the multicultural medley of this city-state through its neighbourhoods: Check out the statue-adorned temples of Little India and the colourful pagodas of Chinatown. Cruise to Singapore and explore the city's Malay section on the Kampong Glam Heritage Trail, which will take you past Arabic-influenced mansions and the gold-dome-topped Masjid Sultan mosque. Experience the contrast between the lush rainforest flora of the Singapore Botanic Garden and the high-tech 'supertrees' and biodomes of Gardens by the Bay. Complete your Singapore adventure with a panorama from the rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands or a Singapore Sling cocktail at the historical Raffles Hotel.

Multicultural Medley

Singapore has four official languages and even more ethnicities that have influenced its culture. Discover the city's Muslim heritage at Sultan Mosque along Arab Street and its Chinese character (and food!) in Chinatown. Little India is the heart of the city's Tamil Indian community, while Kampong Glam is the epicentre of Malay-speaking Singapore.
Insider tip
Taxis in Singapore are plentiful, but locals increasingly use apps (namely, the 'Grab' app) to get around. Consider downloading this before you dock in Singapore.
Singapore, Singapore Gardens By The Bay Park

Two Sides of Nature

Singapore's tropical landscape is as diverse as its culture. The Singapore Botanic Garden (and adjoining Orchid Garden) approach horticulture from a more traditional perspective, while the spacey Supertrees of Gardens by the Bay would seem more at home in 'Avatar' than an issue of 'Better Homes and Gardens'.

Head to the rooftop of the massive Marina Bay Sands to enjoy a panorama of the Singapore skyline, which is also beautiful as seen from the city's symbolic Merlion statue on the other side of the bay. Or visit a more inward-looking Singapore icon when you order an original Singapore Sling cocktail at the Long Bar of the Raffles Hotel.
Singapore, Singapore Wantan Mee
Wantan Mee, popular street food noodles with bbq pork, in Singapore

Local Cuisine

The best way to get a cross-section of Singaporean cuisine is to visit its street vendors, or hawkers, in hubs like Tiong Bahru. Jump onboard a Singapore cruise to try Cantonese-derived wantan mee noodles, with dumplings and yellow egg noodles topped with slices of char siu pork. Snack on chai tow kway, also called carrot cake, even though it's made from rice flour and daikon radish fried with eggs in pork fat.
Singapore, Singapore Chopsticks

Shopping

Singapore is a shopper's paradise, whether you stick to the high-end boutiques of Orchard Road or the local shops throughout the city. One way to guarantee a special souvenir during your Singapore cruise holiday is to shop in the city's ethnic neighbourhoods: Seek out chopsticks and lacquerware in Chinatown or incense and South India dolls in Little India.

Ilocos
Tendered from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
You may not have heard of a little region called Ilocos in the Philippines, but once you visit it, you will never forget its beauty. After docking at Salomague, the main port of Ilocos Sur province, you can lounge on the secluded beaches of nearby Cabugao. The island's isolation makes these beaches perfect for a brisk coastal trek. For a more urban excursion, head about an hour south to historic Vigan City, which is home to eclectic Spanish colonial architecture with dramatic Baroque accents. Whether you sip sweet coconut water on the sands of a castaway island, or marvel as the horse drawing your carriage trots through town squares that remain unchanged since colonial times, Ilocos is like nowhere else you've ever seen.

Cabugao to the Beach

The waters off of Salomague port itself are clear and blue, but a quick taxi ride to nearby Cabugao will allow you to experience stretches of coastline unobscured by ships. Pug-os Beach, which is home to several beach resorts, is a popular option with white sands just waiting to be tread upon. Surf in turquoise waters or sip on fresh mango juice in a comfy lounge chair with your favorite book.
Insider tip
The Philippines' rainy season runs from May to October. Always carry an umbrella or a raincoat to be ready for anything.

Find Nostalgia in Vigan

If you have at least four hours in Ilocos, consider a day trip to Vigan, a city that's home to dozens of colonial architectural treasures. Ride a horse-drawn calesa buggy past landmarks such as St. Paul's Metropolitan Cathedral and the Spanish-era archbishop's residence. The bright orange roofs reflect the afternoon sun and the clip-clop of hooves on cobblestone streets draws travelers back to simpler days.
Insider tip
Salomague is far away from the other cruise port of the Ilocos region, Laoag. Make sure you don't accidentally choose attractions in Laoag instead of Salomague.
Ilocos (Salomague), Philippines Blue Boat

Sail to Salomague Island

An alternative way to hit the beach from Salomague is to take a five-minute ride on a traditional banca boat and head to Salomague Island. Here, you'll escape to deserted white-sand beaches and the kind of solitude you can't find in urban areas. Cruise to Ilocos, Philippines and take a quick dip with a snorkel to enjoy the world-class diving these clear waters boast.
Ilocos (Salomague), Philippines Crispy Bagnet
Crispy bagnet, a deep fried crispy pork belly dish, served with onion and fresh tomatoes and a side of rice, in Ilocos, Philippines

Local Cuisine

South Iloco is a surprising culinary hot spot, especially when you consider how low-profile it is compared to other regions of the Philippines. Fried food is king here, from melt-in-your-mouth bagnet pork belly, to fatty but sweet and spicy longganisa sausage, which is the Philippines' answer to pan-Latin chorizo sausage.
Ilocos (Salomague), Philippines Clay Pottery
Clay pottery for sale in Ilocos, Philippines

Shopping

Even if you can't make it down to Vigan to visit the workshops where super-strong and smooth-to-the-touch Pagburnayan pottery is made by hand, you can still take some home with you. Several vendors around Salomague's cruise port sell pieces large and small, including sizes you can take back on the ship with you.

Manila
From 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
One of the world's most populous metro areas, Manila is packed to the brim with historic and cultural heritage. Start your day in Intramuros, the oldest part of the city – stroll along the 16th-century walls, or take a horse-drawn carriage tour to see the quaint colonial architecture. See the Baroque style and highly decorated interior or St Augustin Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Philippines' oldest stone church. Cruise to Manila and take in the ocean views while you walk down the palm-tree-lined Manila Baywalk, a bustling harbourside promenade. Or take a day trip to nearby Mount Taal and take the one-hour hike to the summit of one of the world's smallest active volcanoes.

Walled-In Wonders

The walled city of Intramuros will take you back in time to the Spanish conquest of Manila in the late 16th century. See the Fort Santiago Citadel itself and the treasures within, like the Spanish Colonial San Agustin Church and Bahay Tsinoy Museum, which is dedicated to the Philippines' Chinese immigrant community.
Insider tip
Manila is famous for its traffic, so be conservative with the distance you plan to travel during your stop. If you have less than 3-4 hours here, you shouldn't leave the city centre.
Manila, Philippines Garden City

Modern Manila

Manila isn't just about the past. The vibrant Makati district is pulsating and futuristic. Its tree-lined boulevards are home to modern architectural landmarks like the Ayala Museum and contemporary shopping malls, like Glorietta and the Greenbelt, which are marvels of architecture (and air conditioning) in their own right.
Insider tip
Carry an umbrella! While the Philippines' rainy season only officially last from May to October, showers can happen at any time of the year and at any time of day.
Manila, Philippines Taal Volcano

Head to the Wild

Hire a taxi at the cruise port exit and have them take you to Ta'al Volcano in Batangas province, where you'll find a lake inside a volcano inside a lake. Ta'al Volcano's size and scope are as impressive from its rim as from the viewpoint that's reachable by car. Alternatively, ride a ferry westward from Manila toward Corregidor, an island that was pivotal during World War II.
Manila, Philippines Food Cuisine

Local Cuisine

Whether you opt for outdoor stalls around Intramuros or upmarket Makati restaurants such as Sentro 1771 in Makati, make traditional Filipino cuisine your priority. Manila cruises offer you the opportunity to try pancit bihon guisado, fried noodles with soya sauce, citrus and veggies. Tuck into sisig, a crispy pork casserole spiced with chilies and flavoured with calamansi, a local citrus fruit.
Manila, Philippines Colorful Handmade Purses

Shopping

If there's one thing Manila's got plenty of, it's shopping. From the shopping centres to souvenir stalls both inside and outside the walls of Intramuros, you'll be spoilt for choice. Buy 'Jeepney' keychains that depict the rural Filipino vehicle for a high kitsch factor, or choose colourful Banig crafts made from traditional Manila hemp grasses for a more rural, traditional souvenir.

If Subic Bay seems like a natural port of call, that's because it was purpose-built to be one. A former U.S. naval base, Subic Bay today hosts a number of attractions, from ecotourism adventures on land and sea to world-class dining and shopping. Explore Pamulaklakin Forest, with its trail that takes you through lush rainforest past streams and a traditional village of the Aetas, the people native to Subic. If you're SCUBA-certified, discover the world beneath Subic Bay, where you'll find kaleidoscopic reefs and spellbinding shipwrecks. Cruise to Subic Bay and take a dip in the clear waters at quiet Dungaree Beach, or see bearcats, camels, ostriches and tigers at Zoobic Park.

Wonder at the Wildlife

Wildlife abounds in Subic Bay, and you don't have to go far from civilization to see the local fauna. Get up-close-and-personal with marine animals at Subic Bay Ocean Adventure. Or see the creatures of the land at Zoobic Safari, a 25-hectare wildlife sanctuary where you can glimpse tigers, camels, ostriches, wild boars and other animals native to the rainforests here.
Insider tip
Jeepneys aren't permitted within the Subic free zone. If you want to ride one, make sure you have time to exit the free zone.

Dare to Dive

Are you SCUBA-certified? If so, there's no shortage of dive companies around Subic Harbor to escort you on an underwater adventure. Swim through magnificent reefs, or see shipwrecks up close and personal. Even if you have only a short time to spare, diving in Subic is an accessible activity.
Insider tip
Check fixed taxi rates before hiring one. Taxis here don't use meters, but they are legally required to charge set prices for every journey.
Subic Bay, Philippines Tropical River

Take to the Trails

Get to know the stunning landscapes of Subic Bay the old-fashioned way: on two foot. Head to Pamaulaklakin Forest, where you can hike the trail through the rainforest and learn ancient survival methods from the Aetas, the native people who preserve their traditional ways here.
Subic Bay, Philippines Halo-halo
Popular ice cream dessert Halo-halo in Subic Bay, Philippines

Local Cuisine

Subic retains a lot of American character, but seek out the Filipino favorites. Cruise to Subic Bay to try pancit, the regional rice noodle stir fry with chicken, cabbage and carrots. Spice it up with tambakol, local yellowfin tuna with chopped chilies, cooked in coconut milk. For dessert, indulge in colorful halo-halo, shaved ice sweetened with evaporated milk and mixed with sweet beans, coconut, fruit or other toppings.
Subic Bay, Philippines Shell Souvenirs

Shopping

Shopping malls have become a favorite Filipino past-time, largely due to their promise of free A/C in this typically humid climate. But you can also find classic souvenirs in modern shopping centers such as Harbor Point and Royal Subic during your Philippines cruise vacation. Pick up seashells from the local shoreline or kitschy key chains shaped like Jeepneys — the Jeeps-turned-buses that are the Philippines' most famous form of public transport.
