Coral Expeditions Cruises 2019-2021 Coral Expeditions (previously Coral Princess Cruises) is Australia’s longest-established adventure cruise operator, since 1983. Cairn-based, its three vessels carry from 44 to 120 passengers. A fourth ship, Coral Geographer, will arrive in December 2020. Coral Expeditions II operates year-round departures from Cairns and Townsville, visiting idyllic islands and locations on the Great Barrier Reef, some exclusively. Coral Discoverer explores Australia’s NW, PNG, Melanesia, New Zealand, Tasmania and super discovery adventures in Indonesian waters. When Coral Geographer arrives, she will add expeditions around the Indian Ocean. Coral Expeditions was awarded ‘Best Australia and New Zealand Small Ship Cruise Line (2018)’ by Cruise Critic, the world’s leading cruise review site, and based on consumer ratings.
