Cruising Thailand & Malaysia: Phuket to Penang

From £2325 for 9 days
Trip Overview
Enjoy the stunning west coast of Malaysia and Thailand on a new small-ship adventure cruise. Between the more popular holiday destinations of Phuket and Penang, there’s a medley of smaller islands and villages to explore, each with their own charms – and often far fewer travellers to contend with. Live it up in postcard-perfect Langkawi, choose from leisure and adventure activities in beachside Ao Nang, join in the relaxed pace of local life in Koi Yao Yai, visit waterfalls hidden 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.
