Looking to Cruise the Far East?

We are now offering cruises by Costa Cruises which have two luxury liners in the Far East.

These are the Costa Classica, (pictured right), and The Costa Allegra (below).

These liners depart from Hong Kong and Singapore, and take in Manila, The Philippines, as a
port-of-call. The full itineraries can be seen on our website cruise pages.

As always, Philippine Trails can organise your return flights to the UK, and your cruise can even form part of a greater extended holiday, of course. Maybe arrive in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a tour of the city, before taking a train ride down to Singapore first.
