If one has time, these ferry rides can be very exciting…definitely not for the faint hearted, I did it a few times, the last one from Surabaya to Ambon, 2 stops in between…bring a hammock to spend the days on deck to enjoy the sun…I had a 1st class cabin, but the door was missing…padlock and a lot of ropearound my bag plus a small amount to the steward…nothing stolen…and yes…there are rats on the ship, but they do nothing,except making noise at night…I really enjoyed it.
