Cheng Ho Liveaboard, Indonesia


KLM Cheng Ho is part of the Sea Safari Cruises Fleet. This shipping company sails with 5 tropical wooden Phinisi schooners for short and longer leisure expeditions east of Bali. These luxury liveaboards are available to hire as private charters or to embark on the proposed cruises. Cheng Ho is one of the most comfortable vessels for diving and snorkelling safaris. Next, to these water activities, we organize island hopping tours to visit local markets, bird watching and trekking to admire volcanos and waterfalls. As we are based in Labuan Bajo in Flores, we regularly visit the Komodo National Park, famous for the impressive Komodo dragons.


We welcome 24 guests in 14 attractive cabins with private bathroom, basin, hot &cold shower and air conditioning in each room. We have 6 cabins with a double bed. These are situated on the lower and upper deck. 4 cabins on the lower deck have twin beds and 4 cabins on the middle deck have a single bed. Our cabins are lovely retreats with windows or portholes and artfully crafted wooden panelling and floors. A daily housekeeping service will provide you with fresh towels and toiletries.
