Day 1, Saturday Dec 8    Singapore – Boarding and overnight in Singapore.
Arrive on your own flight arrangement or ask us for an air quote and a transfer from the airport to the ship.

At first glance, this diamond-shaped island of Singapore, just off the coast of Malaysia gleams with modernism and commercialism, making it seem more Western than Eastern. But as you continue to discover the city-state, you'll uncover the eclectic mix of cultures, religions, ancient treasures and British colonial impressions that give rise to a unique Singaporean identity.  Singapore is officially an English speaking country, yet the cultural fusion is perhaps best expressed in Singapore's unofficial language, ‘Singlish’, a unique patois of English, Chinese and Malay.
