Indonesia: Coastal Cruises with Aqua Expeditions
With vast seas studded with islands of unique character, Indonesia is the perfect setting for unforgettable coastal cruise expeditions
Straddling three time zones and two mighty oceans, Indonesia is the largest archipelagic country in the world. With open sea making up three-quarters of the country’s area and 18,000 tropical islands stretching over 3,100 miles (5,000 km) longitudinally from East to West and 1,050 miles (1,700 km) latitudinally from North to South, Indonesia is a prime location for cruise adventures.
With its immense size, Indonesia also boasts an astounding cultural diversity, with 1,300 ethnic groups and 652 documented languages, of which 11 have disappeared and 19 on the verge of becoming extinct. Beyond the Southeast Asian country’s characteristic volcanic landscapes and colorful wildlife, a cultural treasure trove of age-old traditions and well-preserved colonial-era relics await your discovery.
Indonesia: Her best islands
Indonesia is an archipelagic state. Only five other nations in the world — Fiji, Trinidad and Tobago, the Bahamas, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines — have been given this distinction.
Also known as the Komodo National Park, cruising the Komodo Islands lets you discover Earth’s most dramatic UNESCO World Heritage Site.
