Purpose built for cruising the Kimberley coast, the Coral Princess is a 35 metre catamaran, accommodating just 48 guests and represents great value for money. This small ship offers an intimate cruising experience with the onboard facilities you’d expect from a larger vessel.
In early 2012 Coral Princess underwent a $1 million dollar refurbishment, receiving new state of the art engines, extensive teak decking and a completely remodelled dining room and lounge area. All accommodation aboard the ship was also upgraded with deluxe carpets and stylish artworks.
Being an Expedition Cruise, the Coral Princess carries an Expedition leader and 2 x Field Guides, 50 seat excursion vessel and inflatable Zodiacs for extensive exploration of rivers and tributaries.
