Shanghai
The streets are packed with people, cars and bicycles, weaving an extraordinary tapestry of humanity. Yet, serenity can always be found — be it a class practicing Tai Chi in a park or the peaceful repose of the city's fabled jade Buddha.
15 At Sea
16 Busan
Busan
The second largest city in South Korea and the nation's primary seaport, Pusan is your gateway to a fascinating land whose culture is a unique amalgam of old and new. Modern high-rise towers dwarf ancient Buddhist temples, and the city's bustling business district offers a stark contrast to the serene grounds of Yongdusan Park. Pusan is, in short, a microcosm of South Korea, a nation whose startling economic success often obscures, to Westerners, one of Asia's most sophisticated and venerable cultures.

White sand beaches, turquoise waters, beachfront cafés. Nha Trang's days as an underappreciated treasure are over. Still very much intact since the 7th century are the venerated towers of the Cham Ponagar Temple complex. Sample shore excursions: Nha Trang City Tour; Nha Trang Countryside.
25 Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City
Over a quarter of a century has passed since the Vietnam War ended in 1975 with the fall of Saigon. Today, the name of this bustling metropolis on the Mekong River is Ho Chi Minh City. Yet, the essence of the city, a major trading center since the 18th century, remains unchanged. The air is filled with the cries of street hawkers and honking horns. Swarms of motorbikes buzz down the crowded streets balancing every sort of cargo imaginable—from clinging families to coops of live chickens. And everywhere, friendly faces and warm greetings meet you.
26 At Sea

Baltic Cruise was excellent. Loved that they went to Gdansk as it was charming and a complete surprise. Need to make Hop on Hop Off options clear - ie - which line is actually picking you up from the ship/ working with Princess Ship older but still good. Love the Rotunda area. Excursions expensive and need to be chosen selectively. Entertainment and food excellent.

Good holiday. First time I have booked through Iglu Cruises but was very satisfied with the booking and arrangements. Will certainly use Iglu in the future. Being an Elite passenger with Princess Cruises I was not disappointed. Everything went smoothly thanks to Iglu.
