With a maximum of just 50 guests, enjoy the freedom and flexibility to explore remote coral cays and fringing reefs beyond the reach of other visitors. Cruising by small-ship ensures that you wont just see the Great Barrier Reef, but truly experience it.
The Coral Princess II was brought into service in early 1996, due to the popularity of the original Coral Princess. Also 35 meters in length and accommodates 46 guests, she has continued to provide the same personal and intimate experience that these ships have become famous for.
Orion is arguably the most sophisticated vessel in its class. This beautiful 338 foot ship can hold up to 100 passengers in luxury and comfort, and was designed to explore the world - from the Arctic poles to the Amazon - and everywhere in between. Designed and constructed in Germany, Orion was built for safety and represents the best practice for environmental management and protection in all the regions we explore.
Orion II is a private yacht-like expedition cruise ship built by Cantieri Navale Ferrari of Italy. After a number of years as a private yacht, Orion II was relaunched in 2009 following an extensive technical refit. Orion II now offers the finest standards in small-ship cruise travel. She also has an ice-strengthened hull for voyages in the Arctic and Antarctic and is fitted with stabilizers.
Our new multi-million dollar ship has recently been built at NQEA Australia in Cairns. The ship accommodates 72 guests in 36 cabins and has a cruising speed of 14 knots. The shallow draft of the 63m ship allows it to access the isolated places that Coral Princess is famed for visiting.
