Cruises in Indonesia
With over 17,000 islands, the archipelago of Indonesia is a dot to dot of uninhabited islets, secluded bays, and spectacular vistas. Skirting its miles of coastline on board a luxury phinisi, exploring the nooks and crannies of Indonesia’s forgotten islands, is a brilliant way to see the true splendour of the country and discover its hidden gems.
Cruising the isles of Komodo and Flores or Raja Ampat allows you to get well and truly off the beaten track on a real adventure which takes in sweeping bays, deserted islets, sheltered coves and empty beaches.
Each and every cruise can be tailored to your interests. So whether it’s diving head first into the turquoise blue waters of the ocean, decamping onto an empty beach or simply waking up to paradisiacal views day, in day out, you are sure not to be disappointed.
