Featured Grand World Ports

View of Shanghai, China from the bay on an Asia cruise

Shanghai, China

Shanghai is one of Asia’s most dynamic cities, and one of juxtapositions. It’s divided in two by the Huangpu River—to the west is Puxi and to the east Pudong. Puxi is the city’s downtown and its historic center; it’s here that much of the shopping, dining and nightlife is concentrated.

Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo is the largest city on earth and packed with some of the world’s best shops, museums and restaurants, big and small. While the bright neon lights and the bustle of contemporary Tokyo may be what comes to mind when you think of the city, there is another side.

Colombo, Sri Lanka

Scarred by decades of civil war, Sri Lanka and its commercial capital, Colombo, are relatively new to modern-day tourism.  But Colombo has been a crucial trading post for more than 2,000 years.
India, Maharashtra state, Mumbai Bombay, Chowpatty beach

Mumbai (Bombay), India

The ever-growing megacity of Mumbai (formerly Bombay) juts out into the Arabian Sea. Mostly built on reclaimed land, the metropolis is home to more than 21 million people crammed into a maze of streets.
