When looking for information on Komodo island trips, you will find many but not all of them provide details of the type of ship you will use. In some experiences, we have to ask the type and ship name of the package they offer.

It is very important to know the type of boat you will use when traveling. Its function is to indicate the facilities and the number of passengers, the type of cabin, and the size of the boat. Of course, you want your Komodo island boat tour to be as comfortable as possible.

Knowing your boat type is crucial. Remember that you will be on the ship all the way. That is, you will sleep and be active on the ship. You can’t change boats like moving to another hotel if you’re not happy. There is no reception service if there are complaints or need something important.

Private cabin

On certain ships, you will find private cabins with or without attached bathrooms. So, you have to ask in detail what type of cabin you will get. Usually, the ship operator will offer you a sharing or private cabin.

Share cabin

This type of room is perfect if you go with a group. If you want to make friends or share a room with strangers, sharing a cabin will greatly save the cost of your Komodo island tour. If you are the adventurous type with a small backpack it will be very easy to share rooms with other people.

No Cabin

We do not recommend this type of ship without a cabin if your Komodo island tour is 3-4 days. It would be very uncomfortable! This type of ship without a cabin is highly recommended for a one day trip. Cabinless boats are definitely a low-maintenance traveler’s choice. No security or privacy options. You must really take care of your personal belongings.

Destination visited

Not much difference between 4d3n or 3d2n Komodo island boat tour. Pay attention to the itinerary when the travel operator offers a Komodo island trip package. Destinations that must be included in your trip.
