AS avid travelers, we are always seeking for something more, something to break the routine of “same old, same old,” be it a better way to travel or an experience that is more extraordinary than the last.

And while social media has become the main drive for you making your travel decisions, sometimes, you will not feel inclined to do what everyone has already one.

Luckily, a new concept of traveling is quickly gaining popularity, and it is evidence that travelers are looking for a more novel way to travel. Enter, the fly-cruise.

Unlike the cookie-cutter approach we are used to, fly-cruising allows us to experience the best of both worlds.

That is, flying to a destination of your choice and then boarding a cruise to feast your eyes on unfamiliar sights and discover hidden gems quite literally off the beaten path which are unique to cruising.

One of the most obvious benefits of a fly-cruise is being able to arrive in your chosen port city or country and spending some time in the said destination before getting on the ship. It is also a good way to relax and adjust to the new timezone after a long-haul flight and you will be getting an extended holiday.

Some of the major cruise companies which offer fly-cruising are such as Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, and P&O Cruises.

Have you always wanted to visit some of Asia-Pacific’s most vibrant destinations? P&O Cruises offers the opportunity for you to see a whopping total of eight destinations without having to make those in-between flights.

You would simply need to make your way to Hong Kong, get on the luxurious vessel, then kick back and cruise along as you are brought to Hoi An in Vietnam, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Langkawi in Malaysia, Colombo in Sri Lanka, Mumbai in India, and finally wrapping up your trip with a stop at a Dubai port in the Middle East.

All in 17 days and all along savoring your time away with first-class service, facilities, and amenities that the ship has to offer while soaring away to a distant land.

If you have always wanted to explore both Japan and Taiwan, arguably two of East Asia’s most popular destinations, Princess Cruises boasts a six-night trip that will take you from Keelung Port in Taiwan to Japan’s breathtaking Ryukyu islands.

While you are at sea on the Majestic Princess, enjoy specialty restaurants with dinner menus crafted by Michelin-star award chefs, a mix of Western and Asian entertainment, and other destination-themed activities.

When you set sail on a fly-cruise excursion, you will be rewarded unique experiences you will not soon forget.
