Experience the true essence of a destination with bespoke shoreside events. Take the leading role in your own play and enjoy full immersion in the sights, sounds, stories and celebrations as we travel to some of the most beautiful and culturally diverse destinations. Go backstage to get a taste of life usually reserved for locals - from the tribal dances of Melanesia to the mysteries of Vietnam. Here is a selection of some of the events.

Rabaul, Papua New Guinea Enjoy a performance of the intriguing Baining ceremony - a dance which invokes and appeases the spirits of the forest. Performed only on rare occasions, initiated young men wear giant masks and dance barefoot on fire, chanting hypnotically.

Stone Town, Zanzibar Experience an exclusive evening in the Old Arab Fort, the oldest building in Zanzibar dating from 1699. Enjoy a local gourmet experience including cocktails and dinner followed by a performance, specially produced in a tribute to the son of Zanzibar, Freddy Mercury.

Halong Bay, Vietnam Enjoy a specially curated evening in one of the mysterious caves of the Bay of the Descending Dragons, set at dusk behind a skyline of enormous rocks rising up from the emerald waters. Savour authentic Vietnamese cuisine while local performers take you through the regions in Vietnam.

Manaus, Brazil Step back into Brazil's belle-époque history for a performance in the city's legendary theatre by the Amazonas Symphony and Choir. The Manaus Opera house is a truly remarkable example of Renaissance architecture, still drawing illustrious guests from around the world.
