New Look Cabins for More Successful Future!

April 12, 2006

Dear preferred traveler,

Warmest greetings from Sea Trek Bali!

After almost 4 months of hard work carrying out a major refit of her entire interior, on April 12 our schooner Katharina set sail on her first cruise of 2006.

The Katharina in her new look boasts 7 cabins designed and laid out in a truly 5 star fashion. Lower decks you may find 2 cabins with upper & lower beds and 4 cabins with one double lower and one upper single bed. All private bathrooms are laid out in marble, granite and mosaic, while the cabins have newly installed amenities as a private safety box, intercom for room service and soft lighting

The two smaller upper deck cabins have been conjoined into one large (family) cabin with a king size (lower) bed, a single (upper) bed and a children’s bedstead/bench (daytime). Space allows for an extra bed if desired. This cabin is aimed to provide a more spacious cabin for a group of friends or family members or for honeymooners. Stretched out on your king size bed you may greatly enjoy the view both on starboard and portside of the islands leisurely passing by.

Welcome joining aboard a cruise of a life time!

Warmest regards,

SEA TREK Sailing Adventures

Banda Islands & Spices

Nutmeg & Mace in Banda Islands

Nutmegs, which are easily found drying in the sun in Banda Islands, and mace enter into a bewildering number of preparation in flavoring and medicines. In Europe and the United States, the spices find their way primarily into food and condiments, while in Asia they are used mainly in the production of indigenous medical preparation.
