If you are looking for a luxury expedition cruise in a remote and stunningly beautiful region of the world then consider Aquablu program throughout Indonesia. Cabins are large and well appointed with ample common areas to laze and socialize.The service and food is of a quality you will find in the finest dining restaurants anywhere in the world. A Grade.The scenic backdrops to these dinners and breakfasts are better than you will find anywhere. Beach picnics on deserted islands with crystal clear water and coral gardens at your feet are par for the course. Swimming down freshwater steams through the tropical jungle with flocks of Hornbill overhead is a treat to behold. Visiting local fishing villages and joining in their dance ceremonies is a memorable part of the adventure. Aqua Expeditions offer several different itineraries that are alluring, there are 17,000 islands in Indonesia so one trip is never enough. Combining this ocean going expedition with the serene river adventure on Aqua Mekong is the ultimate combination. Read Less

I always wanted to dive the Raja Ampat area but all of the live aboards looked a bit rough for mine and my husband's vacation dreams. Aqua Blue provides other excursions besides diving and an immersion into the history and culture of the region. It promised for a better dining experience as well. At this point in our lives we like to be comfortable while traveling. Aqua Blue did not disappoint. It is a lovely ship that rides beautifully. Every one of the crew is a professional. The Chef (Adrian) was dedicated and charming. The food was clean and nourishing with exciting flavors. It was just how we love to eat. The cruise director (Glenn) could not have been more attentive and present every moment. The itinerary was crammed with wonderful adventures but time in between to nap and process your experiences before setting out again. The diving was incredible. We were enchanted by new species every day which was amazing after a lifetime of traipsing the planet on dive "safari" and each of us in the neighborhood of 3000 dives logged. Jamal the dive master was relaxed and could find every targeted species. So much fun. He is very experienced and it showed. Truly a delight! Our room was super comfortable with a great hot shower. We had a lovely time in the Aqua Blue bubble and cannot wait to book our next adventure! Read Less

We chose the cruise because we had traveled with Aqua before on the Aqua Mekong. While the Mekong trip was great, this Raja Ampatexpedition was spectacular. The highlights were the amazing diving/snorkeling and the meals, which were Michelin quality. those activities were balanced out with regular kayaking and paddling excursions, which were also successful. Every day seemed better than the one before, and different enough to keep everyone happy. The cruise director and crew, even though the itinerary and crew are both fairly new, were near flawless in their execution - we covered a lot of sea and saw different wonderful coves and islands each day. In terms of comfort the boat is spacious, luxurious, with lots of space to visit with others or be alone. The staterooms are elegant, with loads of storage, fabulous bathrooms, and comfy beds. We were particularly lucky in that the boat was not fully booked and the other guests were a terrific group of people. Sorong is not the easiest place to get to, but it's worth it once you step on the ship. Read Less

We travelled to Raja Ampat on Aqua Blu during January 2020 and it was the most magical holiday. My husband and I travelled on Aqua Aria a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and we were very excited when we read about the launch of Aqua Blu travelling through Raja Ampat as it has been on our bucket list of travels. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our holiday on Aqua Blu. The yacht was beautiful, the cabins were spacious and tastefully decorated, the daily meals that were prepared were delicious (the chef was very accommodating), the daily excursions were fun and the staff were friendly and hospitable. The daily snorkelling was spectacular and snorkelling with Manta's is a highlight. Our journey was a truly beautiful and memorable holiday of a lifetime. We look forward to doing a few more holidays with Aqua Expeditions and visiting Komdo Islands. Read Less
