Trip Highlights

•   Look for strange and vulnerable wildlife in the thickets of evergreen forests, from swollen-nosed proboscis monkeys to exploding ants and wild boar.

•   See two different sides of Bandar Sei Begawan in Brunei with a visit to the opulent Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque followed by tea with a local in a sleepy water village.

•   Learn how to craft Sarawak classic umai (marinated raw fish and shallots) and the best way to cook sago worms during a demonstration from a local cook.

•   Choose to see the virgin rainforest of Ulu Tempurung National Park from the perspective of the birds during a canopy walk.

•   Wash off the humidity by soaking in both the crystal-clear waters of the ocean and the mineral-rich volcanic mud pools of Pulau Tiga.

Where you'll be staying

Panorama II

Your home at sea is the M/S Panorama II. As a Motor Sailer, the Panorama II mostly uses motors for propulsion, reaching a cruising speed of 10 knots, but also features sails for a more romantic option. Fully renovated in 2015, all cabins have wood trim finishes and plush blue accents. Twenty-five spacious cabins accommodate up to 49 guests. Each cruise’s onboard menu is tailored to your destination. And as a smaller ship, the Panorama II docks in smaller ports that larger ships can’t, allowing easy access to the heart of the destination.
