Australian owned and operated, Coral Expeditions boasts an exceptional fleet that is small in number but high in standard. Their intimate ships accommodate between 72 and 120 guests and, true to the cruise line’s Australian heritage, are designed to offer a casual onboard experience. Specialising in cruising throughout Australia, the Asia-Pacific, South Pacific and Indian Ocean, Coral Expeditions ensures a cultural immersion on each of their departures by offering unique itineraries visiting off-the-beaten track ports, curated shore excursions that are designed to promote local interaction and an extensive staff of expedition leaders, guest lecturers, marine biologists and scuba instructors.

What makes Coral Expeditions different? Coral Expeditions have built their reputation and pride themselves by offering a unique expedition cruise experience:

  • Instead of onboard entertainment they offer an extensive daily program of lectures, briefings, themed documentaries and movies
  • They have one single dining room offering high-quality cuisine prepared fresh daily with Australian and local ingredients
  • There are no formal nights or assigned seating
  • Rooms do not come with their own mini-bar or TV. Instead, Coral Expeditions encourages guests to mingle over drinks on the sundeck or in the lounge.
  • Their ships have not been designed around a swimming pool, but rather include a swimming platform allowing you to take a dip directly in the ocean
  • They do not charge for shore excursions, nor do they require tips
