Ports

Biak

The city Biak is above all of historical significance: during the Second World War, thousands of Japanese hid out in the Binsari Cave. Explore this historically rich place with its traditional Biak houses and war relics during the excursion impressions of Biak.

Cenderawasih Bay

Raja Ampat
Latitude: 0°14′S

Waigeo aka "Raja Ampat", or “Four Kings,” archipelago encompasses more than 9.8 million acres of land and sea off the north-western tip of Indonesia’s West Papua Province.

Wayag Island

The Wayag group are small, uninhabited and incredibly picturesque islands located in West Papua.

Gam

Wagmab Island

Country - Papua New Guinea

Mesemta

Banda Neira

Banda Neira is the only settlement of significant size on any of the Banda Islands, located in the Maluku province of Indonesia. The town is located on the central island of the Bandas group, Banda Neira, the only one of the islands with enough flat space to allow a small town.Banda Neira was once the global center of the trade in nutmeg and mace, as the Bandas Islands were the only source of these valuable spices until the mid-19th century. The modern town was established by members of the Dutch East India Company as the capital of the Governorate of the Banda Islands.

Spice Islands

Darwin

Darwin is a modern city (largely because its previous incarnation was blown down by a cyclone) with sparkling buildings and broad streets. Its fortunes are built on the sugar and fruits from the plantations and forests, which enfold the city. Study Aboriginal art and pearl fishing in the city’s museums.

Ship info

Coral Adventurer

Coral Expeditions, Australia’s pioneering cruise line, has announced today with Norwegian shipbuilder Vard to build its fourth expedition cruise ship due to be delivered in mid-2019, with a further vessel intended to follow.
In the planning for over two years, this new ship is designed for ocean cruising to remote tropical areas and draws on the latest technical advances as well as Coral Expeditions’ 34 years of experience building and operating expedition ships.
Modern and rugged, the new ship will carry a maximum of only 120 guests in 60 cabins, preserving Coral Expeditions’ traditionally relaxed and intimate onboard atmosphere.
She will be Australian flagged and conform to the highest standards of build quality, operational redundancy, environmental compliance, and safety.
Vard is a Norwegian-headquartered company with nine shipyards globally and a long history of building complex and sophisticated ships to operate in the toughest conditions.
Custom-designed around its clientele and expedition-focused itineraries, the new ship will feature several of Coral Expeditions’ much-loved features:

  • Twin ‘Xplorer’ tenders mounted on hydraulic platforms that allow guests to embark and disembark for shore excursions without steps, queues or waiting
  • A natural light-filled lecture lounge equipped with modern technology for daily presentations and briefings by expedition experts
  • Facilities onboard to host scientific research missions and local exhibitors
  • Spacious communal areas, including a relaxed dining area which seats all guests
  • All outside-facing cabins with en-suite bathrooms; over half have private balconies
  • Open bridge policy and guest observation lounge overlooking the bridge
  • Multiple indoor and outdoor bars to see the world go by over a glass of Australian wine

The new ship will feature a modern Australian-designed interior with the colours and textures of tropical Queensland. Accommodations will be restful havens for guests returning from shore excursions and range from outside staterooms of 17 sq m (183 sq ft) to suites of 43 sq m (463 sq ft) with outside-facing bathrooms. Active stabilisers will ensure guest comfort in varied conditions.
The ship will join the Coral Expeditions fleet exploring the Kimberley region, Cape York and Arnhem Land (The Top of Australia), Papua New Guinea, the Spice Islands, Indonesia and the South Pacific. She will be in commercial operation from April 2019. More information will be released progressively.
The new ship will target guests who enjoy an intimate and destination-focused cruise experience that stands apart from mega-ship cruising.
