14 Night Cruise sailing from Broome to Benoa aboard Le Laperouse.

Give in to the temptation of an all-new expedition cruise between the wild and grandiose landscapes of the Kimberley region and the sublime islands of East Timor and Indonesia. Set sail aboard Le Lapérouse for an unforgettable 15-day cruise from Broome to Bali.

Your cruise will start in the emblematic Australian region of Kimberley.

As you sail in the Lacepede Islands nature reserve, an important breeding site for green turtles, you’ll be able to observe colonies of sea birds: brown boobies, Roseate terns, Australian pelicans, etc. You will also visit Collier Bay, where you will be able to admire the Montgomery Reef, home to vast expanses of lagoons and immense coral reefs.

In one of the most picturesque parts of the Kimberley region, the Hunter River, you will see wild mangrove forests where saltwater crocodiles live along with many species of birds.

After calling at Jar Island, which is home to ancient galleries of rock paintings specific to the region, discover the King George River and the dual King George Falls, among the highest falls in Kimberley and unquestionably one of the highlights of this cruise.

Your last Australian port of call will take you to the northernmost village in Western Australia, Wyndham. Le Lapérouse will then head for East Timor.

Welcome to Jaco Island! Uninhabited and wild, it is part of the Nino Konis Santana National Park and offers a setting of uncanny beauty.

After a port of call in the Timorese capital, Dili, you will sail towards the magnificent Indonesian archipelago. At Kalabahi, in the Alor Islands, you will encounter ethnic groups of the Flores people who have succeeded in preserving their traditional way of life.

Continue your trip with a visit to Komodo national park. This wild and isolated island is home to the famous Komodo dragons.

Your cruise will come to a close in Bali, “the island of the gods” with its captivating charm and grace.

Highlights of this cruise:

Broome
Located in the northwest of the Kimberley region and in the far north of Western Australia, the town of Broome is reputed for its history and its glorious pearling era. The fascinating Chinatown district, which is the historic city centre, and the famous Japanese Cemetery, dates back to 1896, and has a past marked by the immigration of numerous Chinese and Japanese workers, attracted by the prosperous pearl industry at the end of the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century. Broome is also famous for the “Staircase to the Moon”, an optical illusion created by the Moon reflecting on the sand banks at low tide, like a staircase climbing up towards the sky, a unique spectacle provided by nature…

King George River
The journey up the King George River is nothing short of breathtaking. The 80-metre-high sides of the gorge display varying degrees of weathering of the ancient Warton sandstone. The colours and textures of the gorge change with the light as you travel further up the river creating a continual changing scenery that is simply stunning. The journey culminates at the King George twin falls; the highest single-drop falls in the whole of the Kimberley (80 m or 260 ft). Fed by wet season run-off the level of water cascading over the falls varies from year to year. Your Expedition Team will escort you in either the Zodiacs® or ships tenders to the foot of the twin falls, and explain all about the stunning geological formations of the canyon.

Dili
Located on the northern coast of the island of Timor, along the narrow plains between the central mountains and the Ombai Strait, the seaside resort of Dili is the capital of East Timor, a former Portuguese colony that has been independent since May 2002. The uniqueness of this territory, still preserved from the tourist routes, is unveiled thanks to the beauty of its intact landscapes, with dense tropical forest covering undulating hills, coral reef and immaculate sandy beaches. You will be enchanted by this small and peaceful town with a distinctive Portuguese atmosphere, and will discover the riches of its historic and cultural heritage during your visit.

Benoa
If it's a taste of exotic authenticity you're after, prepare to be spell-bound by the island of Bali, tucked away in the heart of the Indonesian archipelago. The beauty and diversity of its landscapes, the depth and richness of its cultural heritage and the plethora of activities on offer here make Bali a little slice of heaven on Earth. The island's southern coast enthrals with its white sand beaches, its picturesque little fishing villages such as Benoa, and its hills patchworked with terraced rice paddies further inland. Nicknamed 'the Island of Gods' for its sumptuous temples, Bali is the beating heart of Indonesian Hinduism.

Featuring innovative and environmentally-friendly equipment, elegantly designed cabins, spacious suites with large windows, and lounge areas that open onto the outside, this new limited-capacity yacht boasting just 92 cabins and suites will offer you a truly unique cruising experience.

As the first ship in a new series that remains true to the Ponant spirit, Le Lapérouse will embody the unique atmosphere that is the cruise line’s hallmark: a subtle blend of refinement, intimacy and comfort.

Aboard this ship that flies the French flag, you will experience the incomparable pleasure of an intimate cruise, with the possibility of exploring an ever-increasing range of destinations in an ethnic-chic ambiance with 5-star service.

Experience a luxurious setting where the accent is on authenticity and passion for travel.
