    Fancy something a little spicy?

    How about the Spice Islands?
    Now this is something completely different, an expedition cruise with Orion expeditions around the Spice Islands in July 2011.

    The full cruise itinerary will be:

    Darwin, Australia
    Day at sea
    Kisar, Maluku
    Alor, East Nusa Tenggara
    Maumere, Flores
    Komodo, East Nusa Tenggara
    Waingapu, East Sumba
    Kodi, West Sumba
    Savu Island, East Nusa Tenggara
    Nusa Manuk, Rote
    Day at sea

    This is the chance of a lifetime to visit these remote and exotic islands and discover their history. Nature lovers will also be in there element with the array of wildlife and scenery.

    Included in the cruise are a variety of expeditions, and just to give you a taste here is what you could expect at Komodo:

    After a short Zodiac transfer you will access the national park and participate in a guided walk with local guides, our Expedition Team and Park Rangers. The walk, over uneven ground including some uphill climbs, takes us deep into the national park in search of the dragons. The dragons are in their natural habitat so sightings are not guaranteed, however the chance of sighting a dragon is very high.

    The afternoon will be spent at Pink Beach, still within the national park, for swimming, snorkelling and walks on the beach. The Expedition Team will offer snorkel tours here.

    Included on board Orion are all meals, entertainment, educational programmes and zodiac excursions.
