After so much research and worrying about how we would get from Lombok to Bali with two very young children, I feel it is only fair to post this review as the journey was a total success and absolutely seamless. we were advised to fly by friends who live there, some very knowledgeable trip advisor regulars, but we decided to take the boat. Lion Air had recently had an incident and we thought as it was not the wet season we would take the boat. we were also staying in North Lombok near the Gili Islands and travelling to Nusa Dua in Bali, both of which were almost point to point for the boat.
So, we had a 1 and 3 year old and even took our own life jackets for them. the boat was on time, brand new, had life jackets for everyone on board, plenty of comfortable seats with no overcrowding and took 2hrs 15 minutes. The ride was really quite smooth until the last half an hour where it was quite bumpy but we always felt safe and comfortable. At the other end the cars were ready and waiting to take us to our destinations and it was extremely well organised with no unnecessary hanging around. I would definitely recommend this if you are staying close to the boat ports at either end of the journey!
