Day 1: Singapore | Embarkation

Nicknamed the Garden City, Singapore stretches across Malaysia's southern-most region. Experience the vibrant hustle and bustle of this city-state for yourself at the Marina Bay. No too far away is the historic center, offering up a unique smorgasbord of neoclassical buildings and contemporary towers. Decked out in topiary, the pavements of Orchard Road are also home to countless shopping centers. The colorful markets in Chinatown and Little India are the perfect opportunity to quell hunger pangs in a hawker center, one of the city's traditional snack bars. Between the two districts, get a slice of history with a trip to the Raffles dock. It was here that Englishman Sir Raffles, the founder of the city, is said to have arrived one fateful day in January 1819.
 

Day 2: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board. Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation in the spa or stay in shape in the fitness center. Depending on the season, let yourself be tempted by the swimming pool or a spot of sunbathing. This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the Ponant photographers in their dedicated space. As for lovers of the open sea, they will be able to visit the ship’s upper deck to admire the spectacle of the waves and perhaps be lucky enough to observe marine species. A truly enchanted interlude, combining comfort, rest and entertainment.
 

Day 3: Belitung Islands

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Like confetti sprinkled on the Indian Ocean, the Belitung Islands invite discovery, admiration and authenticity. Nestling to the east of Sumatra in the South China and Java seas, the archipelago is composed of myriad small, idyllic islands, the largest of which are Belitung and Bangka. It is on the latter that, in 1920, the Dutch explorer C.J. Batenburg discovered the Kedukan Bukiat inscription, a stone dating from the year 623 CE on which was recorded the State’s naval and military power at that time. But besides its history, the Belitung archipelago stands out for its beautiful scenery. With its mythical lighthouse and its granite rocks skimming the water, the archipelago is sometimes reminiscent of the Seychelles. A popular playground for divers, the archipelago and its shallow waters are home to numerous species of coral and colorful fish.
 

Day 4: Tanjung Puting National Park

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Not far from Kumai in the south of Borneo, discover the magnificent Tanjung Puting National Park, one of Indonesia’s must-see sites. Listed as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, you will explore it from a Zodiac, surrounded by tropical rainforest. People tend to come here particularly for the orang-utans. These fascinating primates have been part of a rehabilitation program here for several years. For what is sure to be a moving experience, you may see them in their natural habitat.
 

Day 5: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board. Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation in the spa or stay in shape in the fitness center. Depending on the season, let yourself be tempted by the swimming pool or a spot of sunbathing. This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the Ponant photographers in their dedicated space.

A truly enchanted interlude, combining comfort, rest and entertainment.
 

Day 6: Provolinggo, Java

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Nestled inside the massive Tengger caldera surrounded by a sea of sand, Mount Bromo is the epitome of desolate beauty. The volcanic complex dates back to about 820,000 years ago and consists of five overlapping stratovolcanoes, each truncated by a caldera. Lava domes, pyroclastic cones, and a maar occupy the flanks of the massif. The surreal lunar landscape has spurned countless legends and myths. Mt Bromo has particular significance for the Hindu Tengger people who believe that this was the site where a brave prince sacrificed his life for his family. After an early departure from the ship guest will travel by bus to Mount Bromo to enjoy this surreal site. 
 

Day 7: Badas, Sumbawa

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
/> The port of Badas is part of the greater township of Sumbawa Besar, on the island of Sumbawa. Like most of Sumbawa the people hold their culture strong as a major part of their identity. The island has a strong influence from the Makassarese of Sulawesi, who over the centuries have introduced a lot of their culture into Sumbawa. Join your expedition team and local guides for a tour by bus to Pamulung Village where you will be welcomed by the head of the village and have the opportunity to witness first-hand the local traditions of rice pounding, weaving and also witness a wedding procession. Your visit will conclude with an exciting Sumbawa buffalo race, an event that will be held in honor of your visit.  
 

Day 8-9: Komodo National Park

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Between the islands of Sumbawa and Florès, Komodo National Park welcomes you to discover its natural wonders. At the very heart of the Indonesian archipelago, the three islands that form it – Komodo, Rinca and Padar - owe their renown to the famous eponymous dragons, enormous lizards over two meters long, which live in its grassy Savannah. This jagged and hilly volcanic territory belonging to the Sunda Islands is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its incredible terrestrial and marine biodiversity. Admire its palette of colors, intermingling the sparkling whites of the beaches, the deep blues of the coral-filled water and the soft greens of its pastures.
 

Day 10: Benoa, Bali

  • 1 Breakfast
If it's a taste of exotic authenticity you're after, prepare to be spell-bound by the island of Bali, tucked away in the heart of the Indonesian archipelago. The beauty and diversity of its landscapes, the depth and richness of its cultural heritage and the plethora of activities on offer here make Bali a little slice of heaven on Earth. The island's southern coast enthralls with its white sand beaches, its picturesque little fishing villages such as Benoa, and its hills patch-worked with terraced rice paddies further inland. Nicknamed 'the Island of Gods' for its sumptuous temples, Bali is the beating heart of Indonesian Hinduism.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
