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.
Beautiful spacious stateroom; fully outfitted large bathroom with great shower, all amenities. Conveniently located on Main Deck for all excursions which left one level down on Swim Deck.
