Itinerary

Wed-Sat, July 11-14:  Pre Cruise Eat, Pray Love Package in Bali – Expand to See Full Itinerary Treat yourself to a relaxing, 50 minute spa service, an exhilarating shore excursion, 2 tank dive or more fruity drinks at the bar compliments of STI when you add our package at the same time as the cruise.  Members receive a $100 onboard credit when they ad or package at the same time that they book the cruise. 
Sat, Jul 14:  Benoa – Bali, Indonesia is the main cruise port on the island of Bali. There are numerous places that are accessible from here including the party-centric Kuta, Nusa Dua the popular beach resort with it’s luxury hotels and restaurants as well as coffee plantations and rice terraces. Trips to temples, palaces markets and a bat cave are some of the many things also on offer.
Sun, Jul 15:  Gili Kondo – Lombok, Indonesia is an uninhabited island which is part of thirty-three small islands in Eastern Lombok. The word Gili simply means “small island” in the Sasak language. Enjoy snorkelling directly from the beach, the waters are very calm and there are plenty of multi-coloured fish. Afterwards you can relax on the white sand and soak up some rays, or take a long beachcombing stroll.
Mon, Jul 16:  At Sea to enjoy scenery and get to know your fellow travelers.
Tue, Jul 17:  Komodo National Park – Komodo, Indonesia The park was founded in 1980 with the aim of preserving the unique Komodo dragon and its habitat. Komodo Island is the bleak and desolate domain of this highly aggressive reptile that looks like a relic from the age when dinosaurs walked the earth. The species is notoriously fierce and the “dragon” moniker is well deserved. The Komodo dragon which belongs to a once widespread order of monitor lizards now survives only on a handful of islands. This giant lizard can grow up to 3 metres in length and weigh as much as 150 kg. Like other monitor lizards they have tapered heads, visible ear-openings, a long slender neck, round pupils and eyelids and above all very powerful jaws. Komodo, Indonesia: Pink beach, or Pantai Merah, is one of only seven such beaches on the whole planet. The amazing colour comes from microscopic animals called Foraminifera which leave a red pigment on the coral reefs and the name Pantai Merah literally means red beach. Pink beach is bounded by turquoise blue sea and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area, including small islands, hills and mountains. It is said to be the best spot for snorkelling in Komodo National Park.
Wed, Jul 18:  Satonda Island – Indonesia is a tiny uninhabited island formed millions of years ago by an eruption which rocked the sea bed at 1,000 m and projected volcanic rock upwards to a height of 289 meters above sea level. The local people believe that the island is sacred and you can see offerings in the form of bits of coral hanging in the trees; these have been put there by pilgrims who visit the island in the hope of having their wishes granted. Satonda is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs with a large variety of tropical fish; to protect this unique underwater paradise the island was declared to be a Marine Nature Park in 1999.
Thu, Jul 19:  Gili Meno & Gili Trawangan – Lombok, Indonesia, universally known as “Gili T”, is the most cosmopolitan and popular island. During the day you can explore the island on food, snorkel, sunbathe, join a dive trip, rent a bike or take a horse carriage ride. These activities are offered by local companies directly at the disembarkation pontoon.
Fri, Jul 20:  Gili Nanggu – Lombok, Indonesia is on the southwest coast of Lombok and is still relatively undeveloped, offering a pristine natural region for travelers to explore. The only noise that breaks the serene silence is the singing and twittering of the birds. The beaches are powder white sand and the water crystal clear and teaming with thousands of tropical fish making it an ideal destination for snorkeling If you’re lucky you may even spot some sea turtles.
Sat, Jul 21:  Benoa – Bali, Indonesia

Day-to-Day Itinerary 

Day 1: Wednesday, July 11

Arrive in Denpasar International airport and after immigration, you will be met by our guide for transfer to our luxurious home for 3 nights, Check-in at the Nusa Dua and rest of the day/evening is at leisure.  If you plan to do spa treatments, now is the time to make your appointments.  Bali has the best massages in the world!

Evening: Meet your fellow adventurers at an informal get together at our hotel this evening.  Many flights arrive late so tonight we’ll likely be ready for some rest before so that we enjoy our time in Bali.

Day 2: Thursday, July 12
Ubud Tampaksiring Volcano

Enjoy a delicious breakfast at our hotel before we depart on our full day tour with lunch.

8:00 a.m. Today we’ll start the day early so we’re able to fit al the wonderful site into our day. First, an exploration of Ubud Palace, home of the Ubud Royal family, with beautiful Balinese traditional houses. Originally founded by Ida Tjokorda Putu Kandel, who ruled from 1800 – 1823, it is set in the centre of Ubud. After the palace we’ll cross the road to visit the renowned Ubud market. This market forms the economic centre of Ubud and has been featured in numerous films, while remaining critically important to the local community.

Then visit the Holy spring Temple, which the locals call Tampak Siring, regarded as a purification Temple. The temple and its two bathing pools have been used by the Balinese for over a thousand years in order to promote good health and prosperity, as the spring water is said to have the power to cure all sorts of ailments from physical conditions to black magic spells. To this day, the Balinese people carry out regular purification ceremonies here.

Proceed to the village of Kintamani, the best spot – weather permitting – for views of Mount Batur, an active volcano sitting alongside Lake Batur. Scanning the horizon from left to right, we will observe that Kintamani sits on the caldera rim of a majestic volcano, and Mount Batur, directly in front of us, is merely a ‘small’ mountain that has been created by thousands of years of volcanic activity. Enjoy a buffet lunch served at a local restaurant overlooking the volcano while we wonder about the mighty forces of Mother Nature that created this natural scene. Then on the way to our hotel, we’ll pass Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave) at Bedulu, and be amazed by this ancient holy sight – a former hermitage for Buddhist monks, who used to meditate in small rooms deep inside the cave.

4:30 p.m. (approximately) Back at our hotel we’ll have time to kick back and relax, get a massage or grab a drink or 2 with new friends. Our STI Concierge will have ideas for dinner in the Nusa Dua Beach area.

Day 3: Friday, July 13
Balinese Culinary Experience and A Day with Balinese

Enjoy a delicious breakfast at our hotel before we depart on our full day tour with lunch.

8:00 a.m. Our day begins with an early morning visit to the local market, where ingredients for today class are purchased, including spices, meat, seafood, vegetables and other thing that we need. See the locals going about their everyday routines in the market, which is all over by 8am. Experience Balinese warm greetings in the traditional way of life before entering a Balinese compound where we will be offered tea, coffee, and typical Balinese traditional cakes as refreshment. The process to make coconut oil will be shown after we have a look around the compound.

We’ll also have a chance to watch the local’s activities such as:

Ironing smith and how Balinese people produce their traditional tools, a Balinese hat maker and how Balinese people produce wine “tuak”, Finally, we’ll witness mat weaving made of pandanus tectorius leaves, flowers and fruits arrangement a part of the Balinese way of life that has been inherited from generation to generation for centuries.

We are welcomed to practice our climbing skill by climbing a coconut tree to get the coconut fruits for our refreshing beverage after our hands on with traditional tools to plant rice!  An amazing experience that we’ll not soon forget. After the variety activities, it’s time for our coking class.  We head to our cooking school and invited to enjoy a fresh coconut before heading into the open air kitchen for the class.

This afternoon, we’ll discover the unique flavors of Balinese cuisine. Our Cooking Class offers a fascinating introduction to the exotic ingredients and unique culture of Balinese food. Gain a valuable insight into the techniques of preparation and cooking which are used on a daily basis in homes all over the island.

The currency in Bali is the Rupiah. As of publication, a U.S. dollar is worth just over 10,000 rupiahs.

Rupiahs are available at banks and currency exchange centers in the United States (higher rates of exchange) and upon arrival in Bali. We recommend that  you bring cash (USD, Euros, Canadian) with you, exchange a small amount at the airport to pay for your taxi and to get you started. You’ll then be able to source a reliable money changer close to your accommodation.

An assortment of low denomination bills and coins are a “must” when exploring Bali, as cash is used for most transactions and businesses and cab drivers often expect the customer to provide exact change.

In addition to cash, bring along a no fee credit card for the best experience.

ATMs also are available to withdraw rupiahs from a bank account, though the amount of rupiahs issued varies by machine and an international withdraw fee and transaction fees are charged on most ATM transactions, notes the Frommer’s travel website.

Credit cards are accepted at most high-end hotels, restaurants, stores and nightclubs, with Visa and MasterCard being the most commonly accepted cards.  For more info on currency in Bali click here. 

Currency aboard the Star Clipper is the Euro. For up to date exchange rates, visit www.xe.com. Your credit card will be accepted to settle your bill onboard the Star Flyer, as well as in major shops and restaurants ashore. All onboard purchases are billed with a guest check and added to your personal shipboard account. At the end of the cruise, you will receive a total bill, that may be paid with cash or charged to a credit card. If you are sharing with another guest, no worries. You will each receive a separate statement.

Prepare by verifying with your credit card company whether or not they have an international conversion fee. Some allow charges with no fee, others charge up to 3% per transaction.

We generally recommend $300-$500 to members based on their lifestyles. Most charges such as cocktails, excursions and and tips for the crew are able to be placed on your shipboard account and charged to your credit card. Allow for shopping in port and any off ship dining.

Massages are the best in Bali and very inexpensive so don’t miss out on one of the highlights here.  Cash is the only way to pay unless you are at a high end hotel and massage rates to match.

 

Yes, passports are required and be sure to confirm that your passport is current and will be valid at least six months after your departure. If you do not have one or need a new one, contact the State Department Passport Office in your area immediately or click here to visit their website.

Excursion prices are subject to change at any time but generally cost $50 and up. STI will provide a sneak peak before you depart. All options are purchased onboard, not in advance, and billed directly to your shipboard account.

Yes. Coffee, tea and juices are available at all meals on a complimentary basis.

Singles Travel International has also included a Welcome Aboard Ice Breaker Party with Complimentary Open Bar as well as a Complimentary Glass of Wine with Dinner Every Night! Our party may not be held on the first evening.

Add our Eat, Pray Love package when booking your cruise and earn $100 onboard credit which may be used toward your bar bill.

Smoking is permitted in designated areas at the Tropical Bar and on Sun Deck. Candles, matches and lighters may never be used in your cabin.

Of course not. You will be pleased to find out that nearly 90% of our guests on every cruise sign up and have never met anyone before joining the group. In 24 years, we have perfected the singles cruise experience. It is paramount that our guests meet each other right away and have opportunities to mingle every day.

From the moment you board the ship, our STI Concierge is waiting to meet you at our Hospitality Desk or Welcome Event. Our first evening begins with a private, welcome aboard cocktail party followed by daily activities both onboard the ship as well as in each port. We dine together each evening in an open seating arrangement so that you have a chance to meet as many people as possible.

Our “All Ages” vacations cater to 45+ and our average age range is 46 to 66. We generally have a ratio of 60/40, women to men. Ages listed on our page are not restricted. They are simply used as a guideline and STI does not guarantee ages and ratios. As a travel club, matchmaking is not our focus. We offer an opportunity for single travelers to see the world in the company of other singles and do not guarantee the ages or ratios.

Along with the most sun throughout the year, July also sees the least amount of rainfall after the month of August. This month is the peak of the “dry season” in Bali and the Nusa Tenggara islands (Lombok, Komodo and the Gilis). July is a great time to enjoy the beaches and go swimming, as the average sea temperature this month is 27°C (81°F).

The average temperature for the month of July is 27°C (80°F), the average low is 22°C (80°F), and the average high is 31°C (88°F).

Seasickness is seldom a problem on large sailing vessels. The wind in the sails prevents much of the rolling motion that may cause sea sickness. If you are prone to motion sickness or have experienced seasickness in the past, consult your doctor for a patch, an appropriate medication or natural remedies. Make sure to take your medication prior to sailing or feeling ill, or it may not be effective.

STI notes that ginger is an age old remedy and we recommend binging some ginger candies or dried ginger if you have access to it.

Pack lightly! We recommend 1 small to medium bag, soft sided or duffel type bag due to limited space in your cabin, especially when sharing with another member.

 

Currently, most airlines will allow you to check one bag, weighing 50 pounds, for a fee. In addition you may carry-on one bag plus a personal item such as a purse or briefcase. Please check with your air carrier for up-to-the minute regulations and fees for checked baggage.

Bali lies 3.2 km (2 mi) east of Java, and is approximately 8 degrees south of the equator. Think warm weather attire, hats, sun glasses and sun screen.

This week is super relaxed. Dress code on our cruise is casual so you won’t need fancy gowns, tuxedos or a pair of shoes for every evening!

Don’t forget a light jacket or sweatshirt for night breezes when star gazing. If you plan on hiking don’t forget a pair of sneakers or hiking boots, otherwise, bare feet and sandals are all you’ll need. The sun is stronger due to our proximity to the Equator, so make sure you use a stronger sunscreen than you’d use at home. If you must doll up and need to have your hairdryer and curling iron, electricity onboard is standard US 110 volts. Also bring, your contract of passage/Confirmation from STI, passport and picture ID.

Packing Tips: Take only what you need; don’t over pack. Save room for souvenirs and purchases. Pack flat and full to avoid wrinkling. Bring wardrobe basics; mix and match around one or two colors. Don’t pack anything valuable, fragile or perishable, including prescription medications and travel documents. Label your luggage with an outside tag, and place an identification card inside each suitcase.

My Packing List: We highly recommend that you bring the following items.

– An open minded attitude and a ready smile!
– Soft sided duffle bag for easy storage and easy access (may be stored under your bed).
– Light jacket or long sleeve shirt for evenings on deck star gazing.
– Tevas or deck shoes for onboard (or barefoot).
– A pair of sneakers or hiking boots
– Sunglasses, sun block, sun hat or visor. Sun is much stronger on the water than on land, even when temps are cooler.
– A pair of binoculars.
– Air freshener.
– Bug spray and Benadryl cream.
– Toiletries: all your daily essentials and a toiletry bag with hook for hanging.
– Drinking Swag (based on your personal needs): Temps are hot and humid and all drinks sweat, keep em cool or hot with a Travel Coffee Cup with lid, Travel water bottle, Beer Coozie, Turvis (insulted) glass, small collapsible cooler.
– Beach towel if desired, not necessary. Pareo wrap for ladies (we’ll get them in Bali).
– Be the life of the party! Being glow in the dark party favors.
– Prescription medications: sufficient supply for the entire trip plus legible written prescription in case of loss. Keep medications in their original, labeled container. Always pack your medications in your carry-on bag!
– Eyeglasses, contacts, contact lens solution. You may want to bring along a written prescription for your eyewear in case of loss.
– Over the counter medications: cold remedy, aspirin/pain reliever, antacid/stomach upset remedy, Band-Aids, Neosporin or other anti-bacterial medication.
– Power strip for all your gadgets – most cabins have only one outlet.
-Electrical Adaptor & Converter for Europe
– Travel alarm clock with illuminated face, especially for guests in an inside cabin.
– Small, Swiss Army type utility knife. Remember to pack this in your checked luggage!
– Travel journal/notepad and reading material.
– Home address book (iphone/smart phone) for sending postcards. A useful tip to avoid bringing your entire address book is to pre-write names and addresses of people to whom you want to send postcards on sheets of self-adhesive labels. It saves time and space in your luggage.
– Small, basic sewing kit with a few extra buttons. Remember to pack scissors in your checked bag!
– Photography Equipment: Bring a sufficient supply of film and extra batteries. If you are bringing a digital camera, you should bring extra memory chips.

All countries you will visit have laws against the purchase and export of certain items, including antiquities, national cultural property and certain animal products, especially endangered species (ivory, rhino horn, tortoise shell, coral, feathers, etc.). Additionally, the United States has laws prohibiting the import of certain items, which include many of the same things. You face having your purchase confiscated and/or heavy fines for exporting or importing prohibited items.

On return to the U.S., your baggage is subject to search by U.S. Customs. Currently, you are permitted to bring back $800 of goods duty free. Persons aged 21 or over may also bring in one liter of liquor and one carton of cigarettes. If you plan to purchase a lot of souvenirs or expensive items, it is important to retain all purchase receipts. However, please note that U.S. Customs may not accept a receipt as true cost if it seems unusually low for the estimated value of the item. You may access the regulations and restrictions governing US Customs on their official website. Click here to learn more.

What Our Members Are Saying

After checking out the Singles Travel International website for more than two years, I decided to take the risk and sign up for my dream vacation…New Zealand/Australia. It was the best move I’ve made in retirement..and by far the best trip I’ve ever taken! Everything was perfect….not one glitch. The trip was very organized and well planned. The concierges Else and Heidi handled all details and questions promptly and efficiently with pleasant attitudes,. They made sure everyone was included in all activities that interested them and gave wonderful suggestions and advice when needed. I think what I enjoyed the most were the other travelers. I met people that were passionate about travel and simply said…sooooo much fun! STI has made it very easy to keep in touch with these new travel buddies about future adventures. I have three more STI trips on the bucket list. Thank you Tammy, Robin, Heidi, Else and the entire STI team for the travel opportunities you have opened for me!!

As an experienced cruiser, my expectation was fair. It turned out to be a whole lot more.  On the cruise our group coordinators made it so easy for the singles group to relax, mingle, interact and simply have fun. Our group consisted of many high-caliber working professionals who knew how to have fun. It was so easy to eat, drink, dance, laugh, and play with them. In the end, I came out with so many new friends and wonderful memories that will last a life-time. I highly recommend doing a Singles Cruise with the STI Team.
