Coral Discoverer Cruises

Launched in 2005, Coral Discoverer is a boutique expedition ship of 1779 GT, staffed by Australian and New Zealand crew. An extensive refit was made in November 2016. She is equipped with the latest stabilisers, safety and navigational equipment for international exploration. She carries small coastal vessels – the aluminium Xplorer and two Zodiacs.

Whether your interest is natural history, wildlife, geology, early exploration, culture, snorkeling, coral viewing, SCUBA diving or just relaxing, her parent company Coral Princess Cruises says: “You will be ensured of a unique adventure on both an emotional and intellectual level.” The onboard Expedition Leader, Marine Biologist, Dive Master & experienced Guest Lecturers will introduce you to the beauty of the world around us. The ship is stabilised for open seas.

    Dining on the Coral Discoverer

    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. Read more
