14 night cruise sailing from Tokyo (Yokohama) aboard the Noordam

Visit Shimizu, Kobe, Sasebo, Japan, Dalian, Qingdao, Shanghai, Xiamen and Hong Kong, China.


A small fishing village until the arrival of Commodore Perry in 1853, today Yokohama is Japan's largest city. Stroll among the gardens, shrines and temples of Kamakura, the Shogun capital from AD 1192 – 1333; visit Hakone National Park for spectacular views of Mt. Fuji; and shop in Tokyo's legendary Ginza shopping district--virtually unequalled for glitz, glamour and good deals. Sample shore excursions: Meiji Shrine & Japanese Cultural Experience; Old Town Tokyo; Yokohama by Night.


A thriving harbor town for centuries, Shimizu is best known for its incredible scenic beauty. Take an excursion to Miho no Matsubara and enjoy stunning views of Mount Fuji and expansive black sand beaches; stroll through the graceful gardens and unique art installations of Tokachi Millennium Forest; and visit Kongofukuji Temple, first built by Kobo-daishi in 822 and rebuilt from 1662.


This cosmopolitan port city is known for more than just its world-famous Kobe beef. Discover the boutiques and markets of the Motomashi and Kokashita districts, explore the Fashion Museum or venture out to the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge-the longest suspension bridge in the world. In the Kitano district, tour stately injikan, western-style Victorian and Gothic homes, or enjoy a glass of sake from one of Kobe's famed wineries.


A key northern port, Dalian is small by Chinese standards, numbering only about five million people, but it's big on beaches, seafood, apples and exquisite glassware in every conceivable shape and color. Sample shore excursions: Dalian Half-day Tour; Dalian Full-day Tour.


Neon pulses, soaring skyscrapers pierce the sky, construction never stops in Shanghai's race to modernity. Still, you can feel the city's silk past in the peaceful Yu Gardens, its history as a financial powerhouse in the international banks along The Bund.

Hong Kong

Can any city in the world top Hong Kong's phenomenal energy? Judge for yourself as you ride the tram to the top of Victoria Peak, join the surge into countless markets and watch the hardworking world of Aberdeen's fishing junks. Sample shore excursions: Morning Tai Chi & Cooking Tour; Hong Kong Island City Sightseeing; Explore Lantau Island & Monastery.
