Life aboard Coral Expeditions I
Coral Expeditions I is a twin-hulled catamaran that rotates annually around the Kimberley Coast, Arnhem Land, Cape York and Great Barrier Reef. Annually, from March to October, 10-night cruises explore the Kimberley coast of NW Australia each way between Darwin and Broome. Some features are: the 80m King George Falls, ancient rock art, WWII relics, sandstone caves, Regent River and Falls, Montgomery Reef, Buccaneer Archipelago, Lacepede Islands, and the amazing Horizontal Falls. In late October depart Darwin for an 11-night voyage to Cairns via Cape York, Gulf of Carpentaria, Arnhem Land, and many fascinating islands. From November through March Coral Expeditions I returns to the Great Barrier Reef sailing out of Cairns. From November to March each year Coral Expeditions I offers 3, 4 and 7 night cruises around the Great Barrier Reef out of Cairns. In late March she leaves Cairns for Darwin over 11 nights, via Torres Strait, Arnhem Land, and Tiwi Islands, a real discovery adventure.

Coral Expeditions offers luxury expedition-style adventure cruising in Australia’s World Heritage Marine and National Parks. Commissioned in 1988 and refitted in 2016, the 730 GT Coral Expeditions I is 35m long and carries 46 passengers. 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.”

Accommodation
Select from four types of accommodation – all very spacious and elegantly appointed. Six Deluxe Stateroom (17m2) have double or twin beds and picture windows. Five Staterooms and eight Upper Deck Staterooms (all 14m2) have large viewing windows and the choice of twin or double beds. Six Lower Deck cabins (10 m2) have twin beds and twin portholes. A number of staterooms have extra divans or Pullman berths, and others have connecting doors.

All accommodation is spacious and air-conditioned with private ensuites and fine toiletries. All rooms are serviced daily. “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
All meals during the cruise are included. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are usually served in the Dining Room located on the Main Deck and are buffet-style while dinner is table d’hôte. A fully stocked cocktail bar combines with two modern air-conditioned lounges for pre-dinner drinks or late-night conversation about the day’s activities. Complimentary coffee and tea is available 24 hours.

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.

Entertainment
This is an explorer vessel – so the entertainment is mainly in the activities on shore. Activities include guided coral viewing (from a glass bottom boat), snorkelling and scuba diving supervised by qualified instructors, and exploration of tropical rain forest islands. Travel on the aluminium excursion vessel for extensive exploration of the coastal rivers and gorges, past waterfalls, salt-water crocodiles and bird life.

Reading: A comprehensive reference library features videos and books on the reef, islands and outback. Conversation: Building friendships with fellow passengers is very much part of the experience. Lectures: Expedition Leaders and Guest Lecturers inform about the regions and cultures of the regions visited. After-dinner slide shows may finish the evening. Relax on the sun deck and in the spa pool.
