Coral Princess Cruises

Coral Princess Cruises

Coral Princess Cruises - Australia's Leading Expedition Cruise company offering Great Barrier Reef cruises, Kimberley cruises, New Zealand cruises, and Australian Outback cruises.

Coral Princess Cruises pioneered the concept of small ship expedition cruising, we are Australia's longest established adventure cruise operator and started operating Great Barrier Reef cruises in 1984 and introduced our Kimberley Cruise program in 1996. A Coral Princess Cruise is an experience that you will never forget, now with three expedition ships: Coral Princess and Oceanic Discoverer, formerly Oceanic Princess.

Experience Great Barrier Reef cruises, Kimberley expedition cruises and New Zealand expedition cruises in style - cruise from the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Marine and National Parks to the Outback of Australia and beyond.

Their dream has long been to share with others the great beauty, diverse cultures, dramatic landscapes and the remote coastlines of Australia and New Zealand. With the launch of their brand new purpose built luxury expedition vessel Oceanic Discoverer they have achieved their goals.

Oceanic Discoverer

Their new multi-million dollar ship has recently been built at NQEA Australia in Cairns. The ship carries 72 passengers in 36 cabins and has a cruising speed of 14 knots. The shallow draft of the 63m ship allows it to access the isolated places that Coral Princess is famed for visiting.

Coral Princess

Commissioned in July 1988, their custom-made Coral Princess is 35 metres in length and carries just 50 passengers and has created the basis for what we are today. Coral Princess is based on the Barrier Reef for 6 months of the year, and then undertakes their cruise itineraries in The Kimberley region.

Coral Princess II

Their expedition cruise program became so popular, they brought Coral Princess II into service in early 1996. Also 35 metres in length and carrying 46 passengers, she has continued to provide the same personal and intimate experience that they have become famous for.
