Star Clippers will take its tall masted ships to Indonesia for the first time in 2017, with a series of cruises from Bali and Singapore.

The line will offer 19 departures between May 6 and Oct. 14 on seven- to 14-night cruises.

One highlight of the six new itineraries in Indonesian waters, Star Clipper said, is the opportunity to view Komodo dragons, the world’s largest living species of lizard.

The small size of Star Clipper ships allows for unusual calls such as the one in Satonda, a volcanic island and marine park surrounded by coral reefs, Star Clipper said.
