Cruising Thailand & Malaysia: Penang to Phuket

From £1628 for 9 days
Trip Overview
Discover the spectacular west coast of Malaysia and Thailand on a new small-ship adventure cruise with Intrepid. Between the more popular holiday destinations of Penang and Phuket, there’s a medley of laidback islands and villages to explore, each with their own charms – and often far fewer travellers to contend with. Live it up in idyllic Langkawi, choose from leisure and adventure activities around Ao Nang, join in local life in laidback Ko Yao Yai, visit waterfalls tucked away in the jungle, and use the Andaman Sea as your swimming pool. With comfortable accommodation onboard, snorkelling and kayaking equipment, and knowledgeable local guides at your service, this is South East Asian paradise done in style.

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.
