Hi David. I've been about as close as the view you see on the cruise cam LOL. We were there on Pacific Sun in 2010 but I unfortunately had a migraine so stayed aboard. I know it was a long tender ride to the jetty. A lot of people went on a tour to Gilly islands from there - apparently awesome beaches & snorkelling. Very unspoilt - not as commercialised as Bali.

Pleased to hear that you have had great cruising weather, with smooth calm seas.

What did you do in Lombok, as our cruise calls there this month?

Thanks for the update Bob.
Glad to hear you are having great weather and smooth seas. It makes all the difference.
Have a great day in Fremantle tomorrow.
If you have been before and are looking for something different, the Maritime Museum is fantastic.

we booked a taxi online with 10 other CC's for a total cost of $17 per person but you can get a taxi just off the wharf for $80 but people haggled and got a cheaper price.....the town is very poor and the place is dirty and smelly, our driver said he would take us to a market but forget to tell us it was a produce market and the fruit & veges were smelly and half rotten so if your driver wants to take you to the market just make sure what one he's taking you to....some of the places take AUD but its a good idea to have the local currency

Thank you so much for providing this link to Jeff's blog (which I've followed previously).

I have been trying to get a feel for Lombok, as we're visiting this month.

Is it just the the same , or different from Bali ?

Bob (rmkw) asked me to respond to this query. We have been to Lombok twice and both occasions we hired a car/driver from the enclosed yard at the end of the jetty. There is a tent on the right where the negotiating is done. The standard price is AUD$80 for the whole day. On our first visit we negotiated it down to $60 and on our recent visit we paid $70 (and we gave the driver a tip of $10). On both occasions our driver spoke quite good English, and the cars were clean. The drivers had laminated cards with "Sea Princess" on but I think they might have been government issued rather than cruise-ship issued because I saw the stall-holders in the yard also had the same ID cards.

People who went outside the 'yard' and took a taxi sometimes found it cost more. One couple were quoted $40 to go by taxi to Mataram (the big town), but they then found the price didn't include sightseeing and return to the jetty. I strongly recommend taking a car/driver from inside the yard. Mataram is only 25-30km away but it takes 45 minutes because traffic is slow moving.

Lombok is unspoiled by tourism and doesn't have the hotels/tourists/traffic jams of Bali. The people are Muslim so the culture is different.

What to see - temples, water palace, craft villages - fabric weaving and wood carving. There are numerous horse-drawn carts used for general transport. They use 'Lombok horses' that are tiny - not as small as Shetland ponies, but still very small. If you decide to take a ride on one of these, be very specific about the price and be careful where they take you. One couple felt intimidated when the driver and his friend he picked up demanded more money. Frankly, I would look and take photos but not take a ride!!

What to buy - hand-woven fabrics at the craft village. Pearls - both freshwater and sea-water. Freshwater are better quality than those available in the Pacific Islands and good prices. Sea-water pearls (Pinctada Maxima pearls like Broome pearls) are about 20% of the price they are in Broome.

If anyone has any further queries I will attempt to answer them.

Thank you so much for your helpful comments and offer to answer queries -

Was it steamy hot? What kind of clothes did you wear, eg covered arms, below the knees, etc.? Did you take your shoes off when you visited temples? Did you buy anything, eg what was the quality like when you got it home? How far did you travel from the ship? I noticed you said it took 45 mins for 25-30 klm. Did you see any beautiful beaches?

Of all our ports on our cruise, my daughter is really excited about visiting Lombok, as she has visited the other countries.

It was recommended by Princess that everyone wear long pants, but I noticed that several people apparently hadn't heard that advice. We wore long pants and short-sleeve shirts. We didn't have to take our shoes off because the temples we went to were historic rather than currently-used mosques.

The weather was hot and steamy, but not as hot as in Darwin a few days earlier. There was a bad storm that hit in the afternoon just after we got into the tender. Tender operations were suspended for 45 minutes. Many people were drenched to the skin. We heard from others that cars were driving through water that came up to the middle of their hub caps. The wind was very strong - houses were damaged and the big tent over the market stalls was blown down.

I am happy with the quality of what we bought (hand-woven fabric and pearls), but I do know the quality of pearls. On all these items we were able to get the price down significantly - more so on the pearls than on the fabric where we teamed up with other passengers wanting to buy and said "How much for four pieces?" type of bargaining.

The distance to Mataram is 25 km or so and our four journeys (two return trips) each took 45 minutes one way. Horse-drawn carts in the traffic really slow things down!

There is a beach but we didn't go there. The photos look good. It is called Senggigi. It is north of Mataram so would probably take 90 minutes driving time. People who went on the ship's 'shuttle' to the beach ($50 each) didn't sound impressed. In Mataram and in driving to and from we didn't see any beggars where we went and had absolutely no problem with hawkers crowing around each yelling lounger than the others to get you to buy (as there are in Bali). Other passengers said at the beach there were a lot of hawkers and also beggars. Maybe it is because they know bus-loads of tourists are going to be dropped off and they will be prime targets.
