DAY 3 – GREAT WALL OF CHINA
An amazing day! After breakfast travel to the extraordinary 2000-year-old Great Wall of China (Badaling Pass), one of the most spectacular structures ever built by man, spanning nearly 4,000 miles of China's northern frontier.

In the beginning she is scheduled to cruise in East-Asia from/to Tianjin, a harbour city close to Beijing. The vessel has a length of 348 meters and has space for 4.180 passengers. One highlight on the Ovation of the Seas is the "North Star", a glass sphere which carries guests up to 90 meters over the sea and provides an impressive 270° view. Another thrilling experience is the skydive simulator and the whole SeaPlex with bumper cars, circus school and much more. Like on all of Royal Caribbean's ships guests enjoy grand shows and life entertainment every night.

Day 5 - 15 – CRUISE PORTS OF CALL 

OKINAWA

Okinawa is the largest island in the Southwest Islands, and the historical seat of power of the Ry?ky? dynasty. Today the island is home to a unique culinary, artistic and musical tradition. It is also home to some excellent beaches, delicious food and friendly people, many of whom speak a little more English than their mainland counterparts. Prefectural capital Naha is a transport hub for the other islands.

TAPEI
Taipei is a tough little city whose beauty lies in its blend of Chinese culture with a curious fusion of Japanese, Southeast Asian and American influences. Taipei's oddness is one of its charms. With its lanes of blackened walkups and countless shopfronts, the city may look like it was thrown together in a hurry, but look again. Great care has been taken to make it a truly liveable place for people.

HONG KONG
Hong Kong is a city where high finance meets high fashion, and mega deals are closed in soaring skyscrapers. But if you look beyond the glass and steel, you'll be greeted by the sights, sounds and smells of a different, more local world. It's complex, it's charming and, like its serious-faced citizens with their bursts of self effacing humour, it’s full of surprises.

MANILA
Manila the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, couldn’t be more apt – its unappealing shell reveals its jewel only to those resolute enough to pry. No stranger to hardship, the city has endured every disaster humans and nature could throw at it, and yet today the chaotic metropolis thrives as a true Asian megacity. Skyscrapers pierce the hazy sky, mushrooming from the grinding poverty of expansive shanty towns, while gleaming malls foreshadow Manila’s brave new air-conditioned world. The congested roads snarl with traffic, but, like the overworked arteries of a sweating giant, they are what keeps this modern metropolis alive.

BORACAY
Boracay is the Philippines' top tourist draw, fuelled by explosive growth and a tsunami of hype. The centre of the action is dreamy White Beach, a 4km, postcard-perfect stretch of sand lined from one end to the other with hotels, restaurants, bars and dive shops several blocks deep. The beach path is typically awash with visitors, including large groups of package tourists from across Asia – most commonly Korea, Taiwan and China. The ocean is full of romantic paraws (an outrigger sailboat) giving rides; colourful parasails fill the air. After perfect sunsets, live music breaks out, and fire dancers twirl their batons. The party goes on all night. This can be great fun and easily occupy your entire visit. Grab that Weng Weng cocktail, sink into your waterfront beanbag chair and just marvel at the spectacle of it all. 

DAY 16 – SINGAPORE
Breakfast and transfer from Cruise Terminal for city tour of Singapore. Time at leisure for shopping. Transfer to Airport for your flight to Malta. 

DAY 17 – MALTA
Arrival in Malta.
