Coral Expeditions

Coral Princess Cruises’s modern fleet of three small ships really allows you to get the most out of a cruise around Australia and the South Pacific. The largest of these ships, the Oceanic Discoverer, accommodates just 72 passengers. This lends the vessels an intimate atmosphere and allows the ships to navigate the shallower waters surrounding the Great Barrier Reef and the South Pacific Islands. The staff on board all Coral Princess Cruises ships is comprised of friendly Australians and New Zealanders who are passionate about sharing their love for this area of the world with you.

Cruise to amazing destinations with Coral Princess Cruises

Have you ever wanted to explore the South Pacific? If so, this is the right cruise company for you. With Coral Princess Cruises you can explore a vast array of vibrant destinations such as Papua New Guinea, the Soloman Islands and New Caledonia. You can follow in the footsteps of Captain James Cook on his voyage of discovery, taking in the delights of Cape York and the Arnhem Land. On any cruise with Coral Princess Cruises you will be able to see many natural wonders such as fjords, glaciers, thermal pools, geysers and tropical jungles. Or how about exploring one of the world’s last surviving wilderness areas, the Kimberly Australian Outback? And of course there will be time for snorkelling! The Great Barrier Reef is surely the most impressive underwater delights on the planet. Diving around this World Heritage-listed region will be one of the highlights of your trip.

Amazing shore excursions

Coral Princess Cruises just want you to relax and have a good time but if you do fancy getting out and about, then they have a great range of shore excursions for you to partake in. They aim to fit in two every day, and they also provide two inclusive excursions with every cruise. These can range from meeting the locals and getting to know about their way of life to admiring paintings in a local gallery, snorkelling or even taking a helicopter flight over Kimberley’s four-tiered Mitchell falls. The great thing about Coral Princess Cruises’ ships is their size – the ability to access remote locations due to the vessels’ shallow draughts means that you will be able to sunbathe in peace on deserted beaches.
