PT Pelni Promoting Cruise Programs on its Fleet of Vessels to Selected Indonesian Destinations

 

the State-owned inter-island passenger shipping company is falling into step with the Indonesian government’s desire to develop cruise tourism by promoting cruise programs under the theme “Ship Xperience: New Way to Explore Wonderful Indonesia.”

Beritabali.com reports that 5 destinations that are being showcased by PT Pelni are: Labuan Bajo (West Flores) and Komodo, Derawan (East Kalimantan), Raja Ampat, Wakatobi and Banda Neira.

 

The corporate secretary of PT Pelni, Didik Dwi Prasetio, told the press: “The concept that we are offering is a live-aboard cruise. The Pelni ships have complete facilities - so tourists have no need to worry. We have hot showers, a range of dining menus and electricity so people can keep their selfie cameras fully charged."

The Pelni ship experience will offer four-day/ three-night cruise programs from designated starting points.

The Labuan Bajo cruise will see tourists fly to Labuan Bajo to check in on board the waiting Pelni ship at the Labuan Bajo port. The cruise will end back in Labuan Bajo as part of the fly-cruise package.

While the Pelni ships are known for their low-cost deck class packages, the cruise packages offer a range of sleeping accommodation options ranging to First-class cabins for two passengers with en suite bathrooms and ocean-facing portholes.

Passengers traveling with the new fly-cruise packages will also enjoy fast-boat service and snorkeling equipment at selected ports of call. Not included in the package prices is the cost of airfares and scuba diving equipment.

PELNI insists that pricing for the new cruise programs will be kept affordable with the per person rate on the Labuan Bajo four-day cruise starting from Rp. 3 million for economy accommodation.

A First-class tourist package to Raja Ampat will start from Rp. 9 million .
