Explore Our Cruise Asia Travel Styles

The cruise industry is going through a reinvention. With changing demographics and a desire for more immersive and exclusive experiences, we felt the time was right to revamp the shore excursions we offer. We have extended our new shorex categories across the entire Cruise Asia by Destination Asia network and by doing so we are able to enhance the overall guest experience by customizing our products to suit the needs of each unique and diverse cruise line.

With a focus on destination-driven products, the easily identified styles include Arts & Culture; Wellness; Nature & Adventure; Local Life; Culinary; Family; Classic; and Offbeat.

Within each category, a selection of subcategories is also available. Contact our in-country cruise managers who can help with shore excursions available within each of the 11 countries in which we operate – whether it’s offbeat hidden gems, adventuring in nature sanctuaries, Asian culinary flavour trails, or tailormade one-of-a-kind trips.
