Luxury cruises Seabourn legend goes to bali

Cruise travel tourism will become a new trendsetter in 2012. Many international Luxury cruise tourism routes recently opened, and Indonesia became part of the international cruise shipping. For those of you who want to try visiting Indonesia in a different way (other than by using air transport) cruise tourism is quite interesting to try, especially for those of you who have an excess budget and priority to comfort with different sensations. One of the open lines of voyage to Indonesia is a Seabourn Legend Ship from the Seabourn Cruise Ship companies , Germany.

Seabourn acquired its third intimate ship in 1996. Seabourn Legend, like its sisters, was built in Bremerhaven, Germany at the Schichau Seebeckwerft shipyard. Originally launched as Royal Viking Queen for the prestigious Royal Viking Line, Seabourn Legend was re-christened by Linn Brynestad, Seabourn founder Atle Brynestad’s wife. Along with their all-suite accommodations and renowned personalized service, Seabourn’s ships also garner consistent acclaim for the award-winning dining on board. Seabourn ships deliver superb cuisine that rivals the finest restaurants anywhere. From French fries to foie gras, every dish receives the expert attention of highly skilled and imaginative chefs. The finest ingredients are selected with care, perfectly prepared to your order, and served with pride.

The Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in an open-seating style that invites guests to dine where, when and with whom they choose. The Veranda Café is a more casual, indoor/outdoor venue serving lavish buffets for breakfast and luncheon. In the evening, the Veranda Café becomes Restaurant 2, alternately serving innovative tasting menus and regionally-themed dinners with table service. The Sky Grill, at the popular alfresco Sky Bar, hosts occasional themed luncheons, and dinners of grilled specialties under the stars. Festive Deck Barbecue dinners and signature Caviar in the Surf beach parties are highlights on many cruises. And guests are welcome to order from The Restaurant menu and have their dinners served, course by course, in their suites if they wish. There is never an extra charge for any dining on Seabourn.

In Indonesia route, Seabourn Legend has two types of journey, a journey that began at 20.00 and the journey starts at 00.00. Shipping starts from Singapore to Surabaya, then see the Komodo dragons on the island of komodo, snorkeling on the island of Flores, East Timor, ending the trip in Lombok and Bali.

And for destinations in Bali here are some places that are planned by the Seabourn Legend as a flagship destination.

Ubud Art and Shopping
Ubud is a must see for visitors to Bali. This tour begins with a visit to the local community of Tohpati where the renowned batik fabric of Bali is painstakingly created by hand. Stop en route at Celuk, where you can see craftsmen working on gold and silver to produce fine works of art. These products are for sale for those who are interested in purchasing a souvenir. You will also visit the very busy Ubud Market—a thriving economic microcosm filled with clothing, candles, sarongs, scarves, wood-carvings and weavings—and everything in between. Sharpen your haggling skills and take on the Indonesian vendors to secure your very own deal of the day.

Batik Village & Bali Safari Adventure
Tohpati is the center for Balinese hand weaving and handmade batik prints. Its factories are not only the largest manufacturers of this highly developed art form, but they also retail direct to visitors. You will visit a factory and after observing the batik making process—you can even try your hand at painting a traditional batik design. Next, visit the Bali Safari & Marine Park, home to hundreds of amazing animals, which represent more 50 species, including some rare and endangered species. Combining Balinese cultural ambience with the African Savannah, Bali Safari & Marine Park is home to Sumatran elephants, Sumatran tigers, white tigers, leopards, komodo dragons and cheetahs. Today’s tour includes a safari journey, access to the front of the line, fresh water aquarium, animal encounter, waterpark, fun zone rides and lunch at the Tsavo Restaurant where you can watch the lions from behind a secure glass wall.

Royal Temple, Monkey Forest & Tanah Lot Pagoda

Visit the former Royal Temple, Pura Taman Ayung, built in 1634 and arguably one of the most beautiful temples on the island. Pura Taman Ayung temple is famous for its exquisite shrines. Drive on to Alas Kedaton—one of Bali’s famed monkey forests. Its towering nutmeg trees are unique to this area and are sacred to the Balinese people. The forest is also home to some of Bali’s cheekiest inhabitants—macaque monkeys—whose antics will have you laughing in no time. Your last stop is at Tanah Lot Temple, a magnificent house of worship perched precariously on a huge rock resting just off of the coastline—perhaps the most photographed temple in all of Bali. Tanah Lot has been an important part of Balinese mythological history for centuries. At the base of the rocky island, poisonous sea snakes guard the temple from evil spirits and intruders.
