Penang Cruises

Penang is an island located off the northwestern coast of Malaysia by the Malacca Strait. The island is lovingly referred to as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’ for its:

  • Pristine sandy beaches
  • Beautiful natural scenery
  • Fascinating cultural sights
  • Numerous eateries with delicious food

Penang is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008 and is an absolute must-visit while on a cruise in Southeast Asia.

Cruise Lines

Penang is included in the itineraries of some of the best cruise lines out there, so you are sure to find a cruise to suit your needs and budget.

Departing from a home port in Australia is easy with the following cruise lines setting sail from Perth (Fremantle) and Sydney:

  • Cunard
  • MSC
  • P&O Australia
  • Regent Seven Seas

Go with Cunard’s famous Queen Mary 2 if you are looking to be spoilt on board while exploring some of the most beautiful spots in Asia.

MSC’s Poesia and P&O Australia’s Pacific Explorer offer more affordable cruises that are great fun for the whole family.

The Best Time to Visit

Generally speaking, the months of November to January are the best for visiting Penang, here is why:

  • Comfortable and pleasant weather for sightseeing and being outside
  • The festive season is fun and colourful here

However, the above also means that there are a lot of people around, plus the prices are higher.

Visit in February to April for a quieter time with less tourist crowds.
