Deck Plan Coral Expeditions II

Accommodating a maximum of only 44 guests, a hand-crafted itinerary has been developed just for you, providing exclusive access to surrounding islands that are otherwise inaccessible. 

The 22 suites are styled with a traditional maritime motif, featuring air-conditioning, ample storage and a spacious private ensuite. All suites are serviced daily and offer large picture windows to capture ocean views.

Coral Expeditions II travels with two inflatable vessels (used for scuba diving excursions) along with a glass-bottom boat (used for coral viewing). The ship’s unique hydraulic platform allows you to safely board your excursion vessels with ease. Simply step aboard from the ship’s main deck before gently lowering into the water, with no need to get your feet wet.

Using only the freshest local produce, onboard chefs create an exquisite array of modern-Australian cuisine. What’s more, all meals are included on board your ship. 

I loved the wild empty country and the complete absence of city stays
