  • Cruising on small ships in Indonesia

    Cruising on small ships in Indonesia
    Cruisers tired of megaships sailing the Caribbean or Mediterranean can try something completely different with the Sailing Indonesia: Bali, Komodo & Flores cruise from AdventureSmith Explorations. For starters, these are very small ships. There's the 138-foot, 28-guest Ombak Putih or the 131-foot, 14-guest Katharina. Both are designed as traditional Indonesian sailing ships but with modern touches. Cabins on both vessels have bathrooms with showers and individually controlled air conditioning. Then there's the itinerary. The seven-day/six-night cruises start by exploring little-visited regions of East Bali before moving on to Lombok, where there is a visit to a pottery village and a dance performance followed by snorkeling on a coral reef. Succeeding days are spent visiting a volcanic lake; a village of boat builders; Komodo National Park, where you may spy one of the famous Komodo dragons; and more snorkeling and wildlife viewing. The cruise is priced from $2,380 per person double occupancy. Info: 877-620-2875, tinyurl.com/mdyq98d
