Ambon & Spice Islands - Aqua Blu
Combine your love for exotic spices with unbelievable diving or snorkeling on this perfect combo of foodie voyage and adventuring.
Indonesia: Drink It In
Setting sail from the rustic Indonesian port city of Ambon, Aqua Blu cruises south across the Banda Sea to the Spice Islands, a destination steeped in historical significance and endowed with both unspoiled nature and culture. As the origin of the nutmeg, a spice that was worth more than gold in terms of weight, the Spice Islands (also called the Banda Islands) were the Holy Grail for famous Old World explorers. Today, setting foot on the Spice Islands is like entering a spectacular living museum where time appears to have stood still and centuries-old relics, such as Fort Belgica, exist alongside rich Indonesian local traditions such as nutmeg cultivation and kora-kora war canoe racing.
