I’m so excited about this trip as it’s a beautiful, interesting area that I’ve always wanted to explore. I’ve been in touch with the expedition team and they’ve all confirmed that this is one of their favourite areas on the planet! It’s a fabulous itinerary that includes off-the-beaten track islands and great reefs. It will showcase natural and cultural wonders of Bali, the Komodo National Park, the Alor archipelago, the Maluku Islands, and Papua in Indonesia, as well as Australia’s Lizard Island and the Great Barrier Reef. Activities will include village walks, meeting with locals, folk traditions and craft, Zodiac excursions and water activities led by local guides and the A&K Expedition Team.

This will be my 9th group cruise with Abercrombie & Kent and they have all been wonderful as the expedition team is superb, the ships are new and modern
plus we’ve seen so many interesting and beautiful places. There is great camaraderie when cruising with others, although everyone is quite independent.

I do hope that you can join me in exploring these beautiful islands. Early booking is recommended as this cruise will sell out fast, so please let me know if I should call you to discuss it in more detail.

We look forward to hearing from you and helping you plan your ideal holiday – 021 434 9394
