Multi-award winning Coral Princess Cruises pioneered the concept of luxury small-ship cruising on the Great Barrier Reef and along Western Australia’s spectacular Kimberley Coast.

Coral Princess Cruises operates a fleet of three ecotourism-accredited, state-of-the-art small ships, Coral Princess, Coral Princess II and the 63-metre flagship Oceanic Discoverer. Each ship is designed to provide all the comfort and facilities of larger cruise ships, yet is small enough to enable access to reef and island sites inaccessible to other vessels.

The cruise line continues to deliver innovative itineraries to destinations including Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and New Zealand.
