Oceania Exclusive Tour

For those travelers who prefer an added measure of intimacy and flexibility, we are pleased to offer our new Oceania Exclusive tours. With a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum capacity of just 16 guests, each tour benefits from a higher level of personal attention and the added flexibility and agility that come from traveling in a small group.

Oceania Exclusive tours are available for a specially selected number of tours in almost every port we visit, in every corner of the world.

Experience some of China's most beautiful and historic venues during this half-day tour of the Shanghai Museum, Yu Garden and Old Town area.

Depart the pier for the drive to the Shanghai Museum. Located in People's Square, the Shanghai Museum is among the finest and most significant museums of its kind in the country. Upon arrival, you will view a portion of its staggering contents: 110,000 historical objects and 430,000 reference pieces. The museum's collection of bronze ware from the Shang (1600-1027 B.C.) and Zhou (1027-256 B.C.) Dynasties, along with pottery, porcelain, paintings and calligraphy, garners national and international fame. During your visit, you will have

an opportunity to see its monographic galleries consisting of bronze, ceramics, calligraphy, painting, sculpture, seal, jade, furniture, coins, and artwork. The museum also houses a special gallery of donated ceramics, and three exhibition halls to display temporary exhibits. All exhibits will include English interpretations.

After your visit to the Shanghai Museum, you will proceed to the Yu Garden. The Pan family, wealthy Ming Dynasty officials, had the Yu

Garden built for their enjoyment between 1559-1577 A.D. Small bridges consisting of different shapes, beautiful rocks, clear-water ponds, elegant pavilions and zigzagging, covered corridors are expertly designed and built in this very delicate, yet beautiful garden. In the mid-19th century, the garden became the home base for the Society of Small Swords, who was a part of the Taiping rebels.

Your tour will conclude with a visit to the Old Town, whose maze of narrow alleys and cobblestone lanes served as the center of

Shanghai centuries ago.

Please note: This tour involves 2 hours of easy walking and standing
