Travel & Diving insurance
Diving insurance is mandatory to dive aboard Adelaar Cruises. You’ll be asked to communicate your insurance member ID before departure. If you do not have a diving insurance yet, we can also subscribe one for you. We will do it with our partner DiveAssure, and charge you onboard. Travel insurance isn’t mandatory. However, we highly recommend it. Indeed, it will cover you for any incident (flight issue, illness etc.) resulting into a booking cancellation.
What vaccines do I need to travel to Indonesia?
Please, check with your local health department. They will provide a listing of immunizations recommended for travel to Indonesia.
It happens less often than you would expect. Our captain uses his experience to plan the cruises according to the weather. You can enjoy a nice cruise without becoming seasick. However, it happens nevertheless. Motion sickness medication is always available onboard. Don’t forget to look at the horizon, it helps 😉
