Bali and Komodo small ship cruise

Indonesia is made up of over 17,000 islands, so a small cruise ship might be the best way to get around. Plus, staying small means you can get to the places bigger boats can't.

Amazon explorer small ship cruise

The Amazon might be a mighty river, but it doesn’t mean you should explore it on a massive boat. On a smaller vessel you can get into the small tributary rivers, too, where it’s much easier to spot wildlife on the shore and get away from the main settlements.
