Welcome to our September 2015 Newsletter
Good Bye "Komodo", Hello "Alor"!
Around the time of writing this newsletter WAOW had all her sails out, with 13 knots of NE wind, heading for Maumere. This small town is situated on the Eastern side of Flores and is our home port for the month of September while we explore the regions around Alor. Pristine reefs, passage dives, rare fauna and sumptuous beaches are awaiting our passengers.

New itineraries for 2017

For logistical reasons we have revised our cruise planning for 2017 with several of the cruise dates and itineraries being modified. You can check all our departure dates online. We would like to assure you that this has no effect on any bookings already in place and only relates to cruises not yet booked.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind you of some of the itineraries we are proposing in 2017:

Magical Moluccas - From Bitung to Ambon via Halmahera
Banda Sea Discoveryfrom Ambon to Maumere via Gunung Api and Wakatobi
 Moluccas to Papua, from Ambon to Ka´mana, via Koon and Triton Bay 

We are still working on some of the contents within these itineraries and we will come back to you very soon with more information on these exciting cruises.

Happy Passengers 

After returning from a "Total Komodo" itinerary, Michel and Irene H., chose to share their enthusiasm with us.
Here is a translation of their comments from French.
"WAOW is a magnificent boat, comfortable, functional, well thought out for receiving customers, perfect down to the smallest details.
With an excellent restauration, refined in both the presentation and quality of the ingredients, we never had an identical course for the entire 12 days. A dignified table where the chef would please his customers in the fine restaurants of Paris.
Our Cruise Director, Fabrice, was pleasant, available and very professional, with a service minded crew, smiling, dynamic and with an excellent atmosphere with all the guests onboard.
Beautiful dives, with certain being exceptional, well supported and guided.
On WAOW, a veritable 5 star class hotel-restaurant, where nothing is more beautiful to satisfy the client." 

Michel and Irene H.

We will be back in Komodo on 25th April 2016 an will stay there throughout the summer season. Book your cruise now and take advantage of still interesting airfares !
