More About This episode

She's a new ship voyaging to new destinations on waters that today's mega-cruise ships simply cannot navigate. Set sail aboard Le Soleal on a 14-day voyage through one of the largest archipelagos on the planet: Indonesia, home to diverse wildlife, rumbling volcanoes, and endless coastlines. Passengers pay thousands of dollars for one-of-a-kind encounters here. But reaching such spectacular locations means overcoming substantial obstacles, on sea and land, challenges that will push Le Soleal, and her crew, to their limits.
