The deal: Although there are an abundance of affordable cruises in Europe and the Caribbean,finding a week-long cruise in Asia that won’t permanently dent the wallet can prove challenging.

Most exotic itineraries are offered on luxury cruise lines as part of a world cruise — making them significantly longer (and more expensive) than the average island-hopping voyage. That’s why this rare, 7-night cruise to Japan aboard Royal Caribbean is such a steal! With rates starting at just $399, you’ll save as much as 76 percent off the brochure price!

The Legend of the Seas embarks from Shanghai, China on April 25, and after spending a day at sea the ship will dock in Okinawa, Japan. It will then call at Kagoshima, home to numerous soothing hot springs and the Tsurumaru castle — famous for its unusual moat filled with goldfish.

Next up, spend two days in Kobe, an area full of ancient temples and shrines, followed by a visit to Nagoya — Japan’s fourth largest city. During the time at sea, take in a show at the theater, dine in one of the numerous restaurants, or relax in the glass-enclosed pool area before the ship arrives in its final destination: Tokyo.

The dollars: All quotes are per person and based on double occupancy. Rates cover accommodations, meals and entertainment on the ship. Fees and taxes, as well as shore excursions, personal expenses, alcoholic beverages, and tips are additional.

The catch: Airfare is not included.
