Enjoy a luxury cruise holiday in Indonesia and explore the world’s richest marine ecosystem. Discover below our schedule & rates as well as our special deals. With more than 25 years of experience, Adelaar takes you to the best dive sites of Komodo National Park, the Alor Archipelago, the Forgotten Islands, and the Banda Sea. Several times a year, you will get the chance to learn about our beloved Manta rays and whale sharks thanks to our marine conservation special cruises. For friends or family seeking a more private experience, we customise private charter trips from 5 to 14 nights upon request.
Adelaar reserves the right to change the itinerary during a trip for any reason it deems necessary (i.e. due to sea and weather conditions, harbor closures, or in the event that the captain feels the safety of the ship and/or the guests are in jeopardy). In the unlikely event of an unexpected change of embarkation or disembarkation harbor, Adelaar will provide assistance with logistics to assure that guests are routed to the original point, but will not cover any associated costs.
Individual cabin space, as well as full boat private charters can be booked, either through your travel agent or direct with us, by email. Once we have confirmed your booking, you will be required to fill out our passenger information sheet, and send us a copy of your passport and your diving insurance. This passport copy is a mandatory requirement from the Indonesian Harbor Authorities for our harbor clearance.
A deposit of 25% per person must be paid to secure a booking. This deposit is not refundable in the event of a later cancellation.
The full balance is due 90 days prior to departure. If the reservation is made less than 90 days prior to departure, the full payment will be due immediately.
Any bank fee related to credit card/online payment or bank transfer, will be at the client’s/tour operator’s discretion.
All cancellations must be made by phone or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The date that Adelaar receives the cancellation of the booking will be the date used to determine the cancellation penalty.
For cancellations more than 90 days prior to departure: we apply the deposit toward a future departure, within the next 12 months. If the guest does not wish to reschedule, the deposit is forfeited.
Cancellations between 90 and 60 days prior to departure: we apply the full amount toward a future departure, within the next 12 months. If the guest does not wish to reschedule, the full amount is forfeited.
Cancellations less than 60 days before departure, there is no refund.
A guest who has booked into an Adelaar trip, and who wishes to cancel, has the option to substitute another person (not already scheduled on the trip) into his space to avoid the cancellation penalty. Passenger substitution will be allowed up to 5 days prior to departure.
Adelaar will not refund any money to guests who fail to show for boarding on the trip departure date, whether this is due to missed airline connections or from the lack of proper paperwork required to enter the country, or any other reason. If an airline connection is missed, Adelaar will make all efforts to arrange that the guest can join the Adelaar at some point in the itinerary. However, the cost to do so (airfare, small boat transport to Adelaar, or any other cost involved) is solely the responsibility of the guest.
If the guest interrupts or cuts short a trip for any reason, Adelaar is not liable to refund any money to the guest. In cases of emergency such as personal illness or accident, Adelaar will assist in all necessary arrangements for the guest’s return travel. However, the cost of this is to be borne solely by the guest.
Cancellations from Adelaar due to guest’s circumstances
Adelaar reserves the right to cancel a booking if actions on the guest’s part give justifiable cause to do so. In such instance Adelaar will not refund any payments already made. Adelaar will not be liable for any other costs the client might have in conjunction with this booking.
