Is a Cruise the Best Way to see more of the World for Less?

There really isn’t a right or wrong way to travel and see the world. However, we will endeavor to highlight what they both entail. As we have been fortunate to experience a 12 day Indonesian explorer cruise, and a 6 week self organised holiday in Bali.

A Few Hours In Jakarta

We arrived in Jakarta in style; this was one of our shore tours while we were on our Indonesian cruise. As we got to shore we were greeted by a parade of people dressed up in costume. Being serenaded with traditional Indonesian music. We boarded our coach, and we made our way to the safari park with a police escort.

A Few Hours In Probolinggo

Although this was a stop on our cruise, we didn't book any shore tours, so we decided to just have a walk around ourselves. We were lucky as P&O had put on a free shuttle bus to the centre of town, we got off and walked through the streets and found the local shops and market.

A Few Hours In Makassar

So Makassar was our first dock on shore in Indonesia since we set off. Although we hadn't booked a tour with P&O themselves, we still wanted to have a walk around to experience what this part of Indonesia was like.

Makassar was our first dock on shore in Indonesia since we set off (other than the tender port in Komodo the day before). Although we hadn't booked a tour with P&O themselves, we still wanted to have a walk around to experience what this part of Indonesia was like.

A Few Hours On The Komodo Island & Pink Beach

We took a short walk through their territory, and we got to see three of this incredible animals. It was great to see them in their national environment. Of course, at the end of the tour, there was the obligatory walk through the locals selling their commercial tat

Our Final Full Day on the P&O Australia Pacific Eden

Our final day onboard the Pacific Eden. A sad day, but it means we are heading to Bali in a few days.

Our Incredible Police Escort Around Jakarta

So today was all about the Safari and botanical gardens. Baring in mind, we docked at port meant a short hop, skip, and a jump ashore. Greeted by traditional dance and dress, we made our way to coach number 1.
