Cruise Overview

Overview

Embark on a captivating journey from the exotic shores of Bali in Indonesia to the tropical city of Darwin in Australia’s north. Traversing the scenic waters of the Indonesian archipelago and across the vast Timor Sea, you’ll travel far from the tourist trail, discovering untouched islands, remote villages, and a rich cultural tapestry. Underwater adventures are endlessly rewarding too, with pristine coral reefs teeming with hundreds of species of fish providing views that are just as amazing below the surface as the incredible landscapes are above. And your home during this remarkable journey? A 6 Star Discovery Yacht that promises the highest level of comfort - this is ultra-luxury cruising at its best.

This itinerary is simply a snapshot of what we can offer, and ports/excursions are subject to change, so contact our Luxury Cruise Travel Specialists to make the most of their expertise and the latest offers.
