Comments My husband and I just returned in early October from 12 days on the Seven Seas, East of Flores. We were interested in an area that was remote and off the beaten track, and this was perfect.

Nice report- Thanks! Can I ask how much the trip cost? I went to the Seven Seas website, but no rates are shown. Also, was food a mix of Indonesian and Western? Thanks again.

Hi Gregory, Sure -- it was $5940 per person for 12 nights, including everything but alcohol, shore excursion on Alor and massage. Yes, the food was a mix -- plenty of curries and Indonesian soups, but always a variety available. Thanks!
