We had an amazing 7 day trip on Al Isra. The boat is so beautiful and full of character. We were all completely blown away. It was so kind of you to arrange such an amazing route for us too. We loved all the places we went to. Perhaps most importantly though, everyone working on the boat was so great.... More

I've been on 5+ cruises with the Al Isra and not only is the boat beautiful but the crew were extremely helpful and very safe. One of my favourite things among many about this boat were the hanging nets in the front of the boat. Relaxing in these nets over the water with the perfect breeze is quite a unique... More

I have been on multiple cruises with Bluewater Cruises, and they have all been beyond 5 stars in my opinion. Yes, waves do get rough, but that is the ocean and beyond anyone's control! This has never stopped my friends and myself from having a great time on the 3+ trips I have had with this company! The ship's crew... More

I've been on board Al Isra a few times, to the islands of the indonesian Archipelago such as Lombok & Nusa Lembongan. Everty trip i went with this crew was incredible. Being out on open waters on a wooden pirate ship style boat, was just absolutely amazing. The set up is cozy, with cabins, and and lounge-style upper deck. Having... More

I spent 10 days aboard Al Isra, traveling with a group of artists throughout Eastern Indonesia - it was hands down one of the most glorious adventures of my life. The ship is an older, wooden style ship, cozy, beautiful upper deck and nice cabins. The crew was helpful and accommodating. We visited island after island on our dingy from... More

What is advertised on the website is a shocking exaggeration. The Alisra boat is uncomfortable and basic at best. Our captain decided to not go to the advertised bat cave, we did not have the barbeques on pristine white beaches, the dive sites were fairly ordinary and polluted with litter, and there was none of the sails shown on the...

The description of this trip is grossly exaggerated on the Bluewater Cruises website. The boat Alisra is old and uncomfortable. The cabins are stuffy and claustrophobic. The captain decided (for reasons not anything to do with safety) we would not visit the scheduled bat cave and the pink beach, or have the two barbeques on lovely white beaches, or dive... More

One of the best trips I've ever made. Crew is just great, so friendly that you feel like at home. Food like in top restaurants - you would not imagine that can it be done on the boat using one hob. Dives ... just amazing - best dives I've ever had. If you are planning to spend couple of days... More

We (Honeymooer) made a six day trip from Gili Tranwangan to Labuan Bajo Flores including diving. We were cruising with the oldest but best ship (Al-Isra). On the ship are 1 double-cab and 6 single bunks, but normally you sleep on deck, which is absolutely lovely. There is enough space on the deck to lie in the sun, play some... More
