Coral Expeditions have been offering guests exciting sailings, exploring Australia and the South Pacific for the last 34 years. Onboard Coral's small fleet of ships you can discover some of the most beautiful and undiscovered areas of Australia and the Asia Pacific region from the Komodo Islands and Papua New Guinea to The Great Barrier Reef.
Their purpose built small ships, offer the ideal base for exploring some of the world's most scenic, coastal waterways and the world's largest coral reef ecosystem. You can choose to cruise on board one of Coral Expeditions, intimate expedition ships; Coral Adventurer, Coral Discoverer, Coral Expeditions II and the brand new Coral Geographer. Each vessel promises a personalised style of cruising, with capacities of just 44 – 120 guests, meaning you can say goodbye to queues, long waits, and assigned seating.
As well as exciting excursions including the opportunity to scuba dive through the Great Barrier Reef, Coral Expeditions offers a comprehensive on board programme to fully immerse you in the destinations. There is a daily programme of lectures, briefings and themed movies that enhance the expedition.
All of the vessels in the Coral Expedition fleet marry modern shipbuilding technology and Australian style. Each spacious stateroom on board features large panoramic windows, so you can enjoy the unparalleled Australian scenery. The stylishly appointed staterooms also include a range comfortable amenities including a en-suite, wardrobe, desk and armchair.
Cuisine onboard Coral Expeditions is fuss-free, healthy and inspired by the regions you visit. In New Zealand, chefs might craft their own distinctive take on the local fish and chips. In Indonesia it could be a delicious nasi goreng with chicken satay and fried shallots.
There is a choice of hot or continental breakfasts, a buffet lunch with new surprises each day, and a sit-down three course dinner nightly. In between, chefs will welcome you back from your shore adventures with freshly baked treats or delicious canapes to accompany your sunset pre-dinner drinks. Special diets can be catered for with advance notice.
