  • When you hop aboard an Abercrombie & Kent cruise to Japan, the islands you visit are far from the flashy streets of Tokyo.

  • Sihanoukville, Cambodia, is a world away from the country’s top tourist spots. Located on the Gulf of Thailand and more than 150 miles south of Phnom Penh, it offers excellent diving, big game fishing and seafood. © Eermakova | Dreamstime.com

  • The Azores Islands lie isolated in the Atlantic Ocean, offering whale watching, hiking, fishing, some of the world’s longest lava tubes and UNESCO-listed volcanic vineyards.
