Aqua Blu launched in November 2019, promising 5-star luxury as she cruises through the East Indonesia Archipelago, where localised climates make year- round cruising possible. Itineraries are 7 and 12 nights covering Komodo National Park, Spice Islands and Raja Ampat with cabin-only options, making trips affordable for those who only need one cabin. Private charters are, of course, possible for larger groups or families.
Aqua Blu’s crew totals 25, including a cruise director, dive instructor, paramedic and English-speaking guides. With a maximum capacity of 30 guests, this is one of the highest crew to staff ratios in the water.
Spread across four decks, 15 sea-facing contemporary suites have all been individually designed and are available in three categories with two pairs of inter-connecting suites ideal for families.
