This 12-day voyage over ancient monsoon sailing routes, on a traditional wind ship, takes in some of the most remote – and lovely – of Indonesia’s 17,000 islands, from the Moluccas via the Sula Archipelago to Sulawesi. It reveals the true nature of this island nation, a maritime crossroads of sea-borne trade, migration and cultures. This story of rare spices, traders, slavers and pirates, ship builders and sea-gypsies unfolds day by day courtesy of our special guest lecturer from the Australian National Maritime Museum, Jeffrey Mellefont. At each new landfall on these secluded islands and coasts we meet diverse, welcoming local cultures, exploring a maritime world that includes beaches of shimmering white, yellow or volcanic sands, coral gardens and abundant marine life.

Note: The price of this cruise does not include any domestic airfares to and from our start and end points, however, our reservations specialists in Bali are more than happy to help arrange domestic flights on your behalf and advise on scheduling. We book hundreds of flights each year on behalf of our guests and we know the best routes to take to ensure you arrive on time. We only book with IATA-approved airlines that have met with international standards of safety and dependability. Except for Bali, transfers to and from local airports to the boat are also included. If you are booking flights by yourself, please do not book any flights before checking with us first. Our first and last day programmes rely on strict time scheduling, so please confirm with us to ensure that you arrive and depart at your destination with plenty of time to spare and to avoid disruption to other guests' schedules.
