Although there have been many promos, but in my personal opinion, this package is less attractive. Or if you look at the capacity of a cruise ship that can accommodate 1000 passengers, this package is a total failure. It is proven that only 162 tourists who follow this tour package to the island of Karimunjuawa.
But even so, many tourists claim to be happy and satisfied with the Let’s Go Karimunjawa tour package. As written by this compass beikut.
“JEPARA, KOMPAS.com – Various ways are done by tourists to enjoy the Eid holiday weekend this year. One of them is by participating in the marine tourism program “Let’s Go Karimun Jawa” organized by PT Pelni from July 18-20 2015.
“I’m interested in joining (Karimun Jawa) because I want to try snorkeling. I want to try water sports. Yes, take advantage of the Lebaran holiday,” said one tourist from Yogyakarta who took part in the “Let’s Go Karimun Jawa” program, Ratna Indah Winarti (51) to KompasTravel in Tanjung Mas Port, Central Java, Saturday (18/7/2015).
