Description

Let multi award-winning Coral Princess Cruises introduce you to Australia's most famous natural wonder - the Great Barrier Reef. With 30 years experience and an unrivalled reputation for cruising excellence, their exclusive itineraries introduce the very best of the Great Barrier Reef and tropical islands in total comfort and unmatched style.

... more

They aim to show you the hidden jewels of the Great Barrier Reef - the reef, ancient rainforest and secluded tropical islands most visitors never see. Exclusive reef moorings mean you won't be surrounded by hundreds of other reef visitors, and their small ships accommodate a maximum of 50 guests, ensuring an intimate and personalised experience.

The beauty of a Coral Princess Cruise is that you can be as adventurous - or as relaxed - as you please. Explore remote coral cays, deserted but for a myriad of colourful tropical fish, peaceful tropical islands and primordial rainforests well beyond the reach of most visitors, or simply relax on the sun deck, in the open-bridge or spa as they cruise serenely through some of the most awe-inspiring scenery Australia has to offer. The choice is yours!
