Bali is by far one of the most magical getaway islands in the world; it really doesn't seem of this Earth! Bali has been deemed The Island of the Gods and rightfully so considering its friendly people, spectacular beaches, beautiful jungle, mountain scenery, rythmic dances, and luxury accommodations.
One of the best highlights in Bali are the dances... Of all the dances, there are three that are best known:
The Barong Dance is performed to ward off evil and sickness from the village.
The Legong Dance was traditionally performed by virgins who reenacted the tale of a princess who was kidnapped by a rejected admirer. While performing the tale, the girls were wrapped in several yards of beautiful fabrics.
The Kecak Dance aka "The Monkey Dance" is a dramatic and visually stunning performance, especially when done as it was intended, which was after dark.
If you've been to Bali, love to cruise, and wish for an itinerary featuring Bali, there are a few cruises that disembark in Benoa, which is the port of call in Bali! Cruise lines such as Azamara, Oceania, Seabourn, and Silversea are just a few, but most luxurious cruise lines that visit Bali.
