This 5-day cruise from Hong Kong provides the opportunity to explore the beautiful island of Okinawa, Japan, and includes an overnight. In addition to its white sand beaches and crystal water, see the Shuri Castle, home of the Ryukyu royal family for 400 years. At the Churaumi Aquarium, the largest in Japan, gaze into the abyss of a nearly 2-million-gallon tank, filled with whale sharks and manta rays. A short ride through the countryside offers the WWII memorial, Okinawa Peace Memorial Park. For a taste of the food, culture, music and more, spend time at Okinawa World, a theme park of sorts, and home to the magnificent Gyokusendo Cave. Sip Orion Beer and purchase Bingata fabric and colorful tsuboya-yaki pottery on Kokusai Dori Street, a trendy shopping area lined with bars, restaurants and souvenir shops.
