We had expected better based on other travelers comments, cruise description and cost.

To begin with the description of the cruise was misleading, it was described as spending two days in Bali, when in reality we arrived in Bali in the evening and had to disembark the next morning. Luckily we had extended our trip by one day on our own so we had the chance to see something.

Second, the wine package we purchased indicated premium wines but that was not the case, the wines included in the package are very ordinary everyday wines with no bottle more than $15 retail value.

Cabin Review

OK but no great, poor design and storage space

Port Reviews


We booked Jakarta HIghlights with the cruise on day 1 in the morning and then inthe afternoon we took the shuttle bus to a mall. Wish the shuttle would have gone to other locations but at least we got to see something and really local people doing local things. The next morning we went back to the mall before the ship departed, this tie they were having a talent contest for children and it was really nice, someone should have told passengers about this. The excusrions we did with the cruise was very superficial, as they all are.


It was awful, we thought we were going to be there for two days according to the program but we found out that it was only one evening. So we saw nothing. The had an excusrsion to some dinner and local floklore show but it was fully booked immediately, they offered us another excursion to a hotel while tehy would do the same thing by the pool at the same price. You must be kidding!
