Coral announces three new cruises

Australia’s pioneer of expedition cruising, Coral Expeditions, has released three new itineraries as part of the maiden voyage series of the Coral Geographer during February, March and April 2021.

Coral Expeditions brings its trademark destination-intensive, small ship cruising experience to some of the most remote islands across the Indian Ocean.

On the Indian Ocean expeditions, historians, anthropologists and destination experts provide informal interpretation to a maximum of 120 guests, with carefully curated all-inclusive excursions and activities designed to immerse you in the fascinating histories and unique flora and fauna of the region.

Small islands at the edge of Africa is a 17-night expedition taking in the coastlines of Mauritius, Reunion, Madagascar, Mozambique and Tanzania, and will depart Mauritius on 17 February 2020.

Navigating the Indian Ocean is a 19-night voyage from Zanzibar to Fremantle, sailing east in a southern arc from the ancient spice island of Zanzibar off the African coast.

Island outposts of Australia’s West Coast is a 27-night expedition from Fremantle to Darwin that will take guests to the farthest reaches of the Australian territories, including the Abrolhos Islands, Shark Bay, Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Christmas Island and Ashmore Reef.

“We are releasing these new voyages following strong market reception to the recently launched Singapore to Seychelles 25-night Maiden Voyage of Coral Geographer,” said Coral Expeditions commercial director Jeff Gillies, who recently spoke with YourLifeChoices about how Coral’s small-ship cruise experience is the best way to see Australia.

Coral Geographer features brilliant innovations aimed at guest comfort, such as six suites with panoramic glass-enclosed baths, 54 all sea-view staterooms finished in stone and wood, expansive deck areas and indoor and outdoor bars, further enhancing the company’s reputation for small ships with big ship comforts.
