30 Night Cruise sailing from Cairns to Singapore aboard Wind Spirit.

Start your journey in Cairns, wandering the Esplanade, exploring Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park, Daintree National Park, and visiting the quaint fishing community of Cooktown before cruising one of the world’s seven wonders—the Great Barrier Reef. Thursday Island offers a wet landing and an introduction to the indigenous Torres Strait Islanders. Cultural exploration continues in Yirrkala, an Aboriginal artisan community where bark paintings, weavings and Didgeridoos abound. In the cosmopolitan city of Darwin, don’t miss Mindil Beach, Litchfield National Park and Kakadu National Park, and Crocosaurus Cove—home to turtles, water buffalo and saltwater crocodiles. Cross the Timor Sea to Kupang, Indonesia where friendly locals delight in showing their tenun ikat woven cloths. Wildlife lovers prepare to be amazed in Loh Liang; this UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve is home to nearly 6,000 Komodo dragons, manta rays, whales, dolphins and turtles. Benoa instantly entrances visitors with Bali’s spectacular beauty, calm waters, small village atmosphere and Batik artistry. Savor satays and secluded beaches in Kepulauan Seribu, and Pantara Island. Conclude your Indonesian adventure in Singapore by exploring the Botanic Gardens, Chinatown and Little India.

Highlights of this cruise:

Cairns
Here is the gateway to see the Great Barrier Reef and no one should miss it if you’ve come this far, so plan to expand your stay here. Other highlights of Cairns include the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park with stories of the indigenous aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders, the beautiful gorges, beaches and mountainous rainforest of Daintree National Park and the Cairns Esplanade full of local flavor in its bars and restaurants.

Thursday Island
Part of the fun of Thursday Island is the wet landing needed to get there. It will seem like time stands still on this colorful island paradise, which is home to the indigenous Torres Strait Islanders whose lifestyle has evolved from the sea. During World War II Thursday Island became a military base for Australian and U.S. forces. Enjoy a drink on the pub deck overlooking aquamarine waters and offers a chance to interact with the friendly locals.

Darwin
This cosmopolitan city where over 50 nationalities are represented is a gateway to large Kakadu National Park and its popular waterfront has several lovely beaches like Mindil Beach, known for its night markets and green areas like Bicentennial Park and Litchfield Park. Crocosaurus Cove and Crocodylus Park both offer opportunities to see the wildlife of the area including turtles, water buffalo and saltwater crocodiles.

Ende, Flores
Located on the island of Flores, Ende has both a hospital and a university and people with good English skills. This remote harbor is located near Mount Kelimutu volcano where the 3 crater lakes change colors all the time, and also near Blue Stone Beach with rocks of all colors, At Wologai Traditional Village you will see traditional houses, master wood carvers and traditional cloth weavers.

Benoa
Described as paradise, Bali’s spectacular beauty is difficult to describe in words. The calm waters and beautiful white sand beaches of the small village of Benoa have made it the prime water sports area of Bali. Bali Volcano, also known as Mount Batur is a popular sightseeing destination with magnificent views from the Batur Caldera. Batik is still very popular in Bali and is considered one of the country’s most highly developed art forms.

Semarang
This port is the gateway to take a day trip to Borobudur, the Buddhist temple and UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates back to the 8th century. There’s also plenty to do in Semarang. There is excellent Chinese food around town and important historical sites like Gedung Batu – the city’s oldest Chinese temple complex, or the Old Quarter featuring Dutch colonial architecture including Lawang Sewu, a massive building and Sam Poo Kong, a 15th century temple in Chinatown.

Pulau Bintan
A short boat ride from Singapore, Pulau Bintan has some of the best white-sand beaches in Sumatra. Its northern Lagoi area is an upscale resort destination but the real cultural experience can be found in Tnajung Pinang where its eclectic mix of building styles, including Dutch colonial, and the noisy, bustling streets offer exposure to memorable rustic charm.

Singapore
Say hello to Stamford Raffles’ engaging city, a modern metropolis which is blended with the traditional historic towns of the founders. These include Chinatown, Little India and the Malay community of Kampong Glam. The Singapore River meanders through the center of the island with vistas of skyscrapers and historic shop houses, often side-by-side. Singapore is a tropical garden city with flowers and greenery everywhere. Among the attractions are the domes at Gardens by the Bay located near Marina Bay and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Botanic Gardens. Orchard Road is the epicenter for shopping some of Asia’s leading retailers and includes both international brands and local shops.
