With destinations usually only found on expedition cruises, this bridge holiday on the luxurious Seabourn Sojourn has a fascinating itinerary.
We have one night in Darwin before boarding the ship to sail to the fabled Spice Islands of Bandaneira, Ambon and Ternate. We cross the Celebes Sea to Palawan Island where you can see the Puerto Princesa Underground River, one of the world’s New Seven Wonders of Nature. We visit Coron in the Calamian Archipelago with its dramatic karst cliffs and hidden lagoons, before stopping at Boracay Island with its white-sand beaches, voted the Best Island in the World in the 2017 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. After a visit to bustling Manila we disembark in exciting Hong Kong.
