Discover Indonesia in Luxury: “Aqua Blu” returns to the Coral Triangle

Aqua BluAqua Blu is returning to Indonesia this April, with group and charter voyages commencing first and departures for individual travelers following in June.

Starting with its Bali-Komodo itinerary, Aqua Blu will take guests to explore one of the world’s most biodiverse marine ecosystems. There’ll be opportunities to snorkel alongside whale sharks and observe pristine coral reefs.

For those planning ahead, Aqua Blu will sail Ambon and the Spice Islands from September through till November. While observing the remnants of a colonial past, guests will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich culture and heritage of these remote destinations.

Finally, Aqua Blu will chart a course for Raja Ampat in December — a paradise for divers and snorkelers alike.

Aqua Blu’s relaunch will be accompanied by our newest addition, Aqua Mare, which will begin sailing the Galapagos Islands this June as well. Aqua Expeditions’ fifth and final vessel, Aqua Mekong, will return to Cambodia and Vietnam in September.

Presenting a brand-new cruise experience in the pristine East Indonesian Archipelago, Aqua Blu is a long-range explorer yacht sailing the region’s most prized destinations, including Komodo National Park, Spice Islands and Raja Ampat on unforgettable 7- and 12-night itineraries.

Where modern luxury meets naval heritage

With a grand legacy as the former British Naval Explorer HMS Beagle and later as the private yacht of a European aristocratic family, Aqua Blu is a compelling maritime statement. A 2019 refurbishment overseen by Dutch yacht design maestro Cor D. Rover brings the vessel to world-class cruising specifications. Guests can expect to embrace a distinguished sense of history and seafaring evolution when they set foot on this one-of-a-kind cruise ship.

Inside the five-deck, 15-suite Aqua Blu, Cor has tastefully paired a brass-and-ivory interior theme with generous and inviting indoor and outdoor social spaces, including a sun deck.
