Life aboard Coral Adventurer
Coral Adventurer arrived 24 April 2019 to homeport in Darwin. Through the 2019-2020 season she cruises throughout the Kimberley, Arnhem Land and the Indonesian archipelago. Until October 2019 10-night cruises discover the Kimberley coast between Darwin and Broome. From October to December cruise from Darwin to Cairns, the coast of PNG, and in early 2020 return from Darwin to Singapore. From late December 2019 through March 2020 Adventurer cruises Indonesian waters: the Spice Island, Raja Ampat, Komodo Island, and – importantly – Krakatau, a sight rarely seen, and renowned for its 1883 eruption that reverberated around the world and heard in Alice Springs. By April 2020 the vessel is back in the Kimberly region. NOTE: There’s a unique 60-day round-Australia from Darwin departing Nov. 7, 2020, visiting 35 places of maritime, cultural and natural significance that have shaped Australia. The journey features overnight stopovers in Fremantle, Adelaide, Hobart, Sydney and Cairns. Included in the cruise fare is a flight by private jet from Cairns to Uluru for Christmas dinner!

The two shaded Xpedition ship-to-shore vessels lowered from the ship’s aft will take every guest on daily excursions. Coral Adventure is designed for comfort, with active stabilisers, mostly balcony cabins, and interiors designed with the colours and textures of tropical Queensland. Coral Adventurer features promenade decks, generous communal areas that accommodate all guests, a passenger elevator, and an open kitchen where you can observe our chefs whip up small batch cuisine from locally sourced ingredients. With a friendly and professional Australian crew, the onboard atmosphere will be informal and intimate. Sit in the bridge lounge, chat with the captain, accompany the chefs on market tours, and view the open kitchen as meals are prepared from local ingredients. A Coral Expeditions cruise is like no other.

Accommodation
There are 60 cabins over four decks. Starting from the lowest deck, 12 Coral Deck Staterooms (17 sq.m.) are furnished with a junior King size bed (or two singles), wardrobe, desk and arm chair. A compact ensuite has a toilet, shower and ample storage with a sea view via twin portholes. On the next deck up are 16 Promenade Deck Staterooms (17 sq.m.), with the same furnishings, and sea view via a large picture window. The 28 Explorer Deck staterooms (21.4 sq.m.) are similarly furnished, and with a private balcony with seating for two. The two Bridge Deck staterooms (21.4 sq.m.) are again similarly furnished. French windows open to a balcony with seating for two. The bridge deck offers superb views. Also on the Bridge Deck are the two Cairns and Darwin suites (55.8 sq.m.).

The ship’s interior design, created by the reputed interior design firm Arkhefield of Brisbane, reflects tropical North Queensland. Arkhefield have combined Norwegian furniture and marine fixtures with wood, stone and fabric elements that reflect the colours and textures of Australia. “We rate the accommodation as amongst the best we have experienced,” is typical of past guests’ reviews. All staff are from Australia and New Zealand, and assure you of personalised yet unobtrusive service.

Food and Dining
The dining room seats all guests at one sitting, and the cuisine reflects local products – indeed those you may have seen purchased by the chefs at ports of call, and small-batch prepared in the open-view kitchen. Breakfast and lunch are buffet-style, and evening dinner is table d’hôte (a fixed number of already prepared dishes). Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are included for lunch and dinner. For dinner there is a ‘communal wine table’ with a curated wine selection. Guests can look forward sometime on their cruise to a beach BBQ against some memorable backdrop scenery. All meals and beverages, including beer and wine at meals, are included in the cruise fare. Tea and coffee is available around the clock. There are multiple bars and lounges for relaxation and conversation.

Past guests speak highly of the standard of cuisine and attention to dietary requests. Standard hours are breakfast from 7:00-8:30am, lunch at 12:30pm and dinner at 7:30pm; however meal times may vary according to the day's activities. Recent past guests (Australian and International) report that their experiences exceeded what the company brochures offered, and they enjoyed the congeniality of the crew. “A five star hotel experience albeit in bare feet with food and service above and beyond expectations.”

Entertainment
This is an explorer vessel – so the entertainment is focussed on the activities on shore. These include snorkelling and SCUBA diving supervised by qualified instructors, exploration of tropical rain forest islands, coastal viewing from the two shaded Xpedition boats, and meeting villagers in their communes. Shore excursions are aboard the specially designed tenders. Have the Captain serve you a BBQ meal on a beach.

A comprehensive reference library features videos and books on the reef, islands and outback. Building friendships with fellow passengers is very much part of the experience. Expedition Leaders and Guest Lecturers will introduce you to some of the 1500 species of tropical fish and hundreds of varies of coral you may meet in the warm waters of the Reef. After-dinner slide shows may finish the evening. Relax on the sun deck or one of the lounges.
