On Gaya Baru Indah the cruises are in the Papua and Malukku provinces of Indonesia which is Raja Ampat, Triton Bay and the Banda Sea.
The cruises last from 7 to 12 days depending on the route and they change the routes frequently, so if you are looking for a long cruise, you can combine 2 cruises and enjoy 2 entirely different journeys.
For example combine Raja Ampat to Triton Bay with Triton Bay to the Banda Sea and enjoy a great adventure for 24 days.

Indonesia┬┤s traffic system is often less than ideal and delays and cancellations can happen all the time.
We find Garuda Indonesia to be the most reliable domestic airline.
We advise to schedule flights for arrival one or several days before the start of the cruise.
We will need your flight numbers and arrival times so you can be picked up from the airport.
If you wish to be picked up from a hotel in the town of the ship's departure, we will need that information to make arrangements for that also.
Guests can check in on the ship between 8:00 and 10:00 on departure day.
