In the "old days" the map you had to navigate by was blacked out untill you sailed over that particular portion of it.
Now all you have to do to see "large map of the world"  is click ctrl+M while you are on the high seas.

There are 2 separate "sides of the world".  You will only be able to see Asian cities when on the Asian side and European cities when on the European side.
There are also 4 different ways to get from the European side of the map to the Asian side
1) sail south then East around the cape of South Africa
2) sail south then West around the tip of South America
3) Sail North then East over the Asian Continent
4) Sail North then West through the Frozen Islands of the North American Continent
You can zoom in when on that map to get a close look at the cities....here are screen shots:

Method 3 sailing toward Asian cities & North Island via North Asia
