The People

With over 300 different ethnic groups and nearly 700 languages among them, Indonesia is as diverse a nation as you will find anywhere on Earth. As we cruise, we aim to provide you with many opportunities to visit and meet with the local people. We will stop in towns and villages en route to visit schools and royal households, browse and shop in traditional markets, feast on local fare, watch weavers and blacksmiths plying their trade, explore colonial-era forts and historical buildings, see pinisi boats being built on the shore, and simply walk through the pretty lanes of the villages while sharing a smile and a laugh with friendly people going about their daily lives.
