Comments THE GOOD: 16 guests & 15 crew = topnotch personal service

THE MEDIOCRE: MV Indo Agressor very much in need of restoration. Food, occasionally inedible, was mostly just ok - rice+fish/meat/salad. Beer was much better than red & White wine offerings.

WISH I'D KNOWN BEFORE: air travel of 60+ hours door-to-door is a killer--looong layovers in Jakarta &/or Singapore. Claustrophobic bunk beds in teeny cabins were less than expected. Overall trip cost of $7885 (including $1600 intl air + $750 local air) seems far too much.

This was my 5th - and last - Indonesian trip.
