New Bali Hai Cruise Addition: Bali

Confession time. I have never been on a Bali Hai Cruise in all my years in Bali. I have friends that have and they applaud the magnificence and enjoyment of these day and night cruises.

According to an article I was reading recently, the company has refurbished the luxury cruise vessel Bali High II with added delights. Of course there are still the Bali Hai Reef Cruise as well as Bali Hai Beach Club Cruise and the Bali Hai Sunset Dinner Cruise. But it is the Bali Hai II Cruise that has become the 'pearl' of the fleet.

Here is a section of the article from the Bali Discovery about the new Aristocratic Pearl Evening Cruise:

New Aristocrat Pearl Evening Cruise

A new addition to Bali Ha's range of cruise products is a new sophisticated "pearl themed" cruise onboard Bali Hai's Sailing Catamaran Aristocrat.




Traditionally dressed Balinese Girls will distribute floral garlands to arriving guests who after a champagne cocktail in the garden will be invited onboard to be entertained by a string quartet.

Casting off and setting sail in the protected waters of the harbour,, a fine dining experience awaits including fresh salmon, salad platters, cold meats and fresh seafood, Balinese satays and fragrant rice.

Guests will also have the opportunity to sample "pearl meat" - a delicious by-product of Bali Hai's newly established pearl cultivation center at Nusa Lembongan. During the course of the evenings cruise guests will receive an introduction to the process of pearl farming and practical tips provided by pearl experts on how to spot a valuable pearl.

Passengers on the new Aristocrat Pearl Evening Cruise are picked up from their hotel in the early evening for a 6:30 p.m. arrival at Benoa harbor. Following welcoming cocktails at the marina guest will board the Aristocrat at 7:00 p.m. with a scheduled return at 9:30 p.m.

Candika never has been one for the ocean and it will take a lot of convincing to get her on a boat. Heck, she gets seasick watching films of cruise ships going UP and then DOWN, UP and then DOWN…you get the picture. Admittedly the Bali Hai Cruises are not in this category as the waters off Bali make for pleasant cruising. She likes Whales and Dolphins. So I figure that if I could get her out on a Whale Watch Cruise then all she has to do is step up one to a Bali Hai Cruise. I'll remember to take enough brown paper bags.
