Coral Expeditions has welcomed its fourth and largest expedition ship, Coral Adventurer, to the fleet as she sets sail for Darwin on her sold-out maiden voyage.
Her launch and christening saw guests given a walk-through of the ship while enjoying a menu of Australian food and wine and a sunset cruise along the Singapore coast.
Renowned Indigenous leader and performer, Dr David Hudson, presented a traditional gift to welcome her to the Australian fleet and entertained with Indigenous music.
The 120-passenger ship features “elegant and vibrant living spaces” designed by Brisbane-based design firm Arkhefield embodying the company’s Australian roots and the exotic locations the ship will visit.
There will also be a wide selection of specially commissioned indigenous artworks in the ship’s common areas.
A guest observation lounge located in the bridge – a Coral Expeditions trademark – will allow guests to immerse themselves in the navigation activity and interact with crew along the way.
A small fleet of inflatable zodiacs allow for more intrepid exploration and personal experiences.
The ship is en-route to Dawrin for her “In the Trail of Tasman” voyage, an 18- day expedition cruise through the Indonesian Archipelago.
Following its inaugural sailing, Coral Adventurer will arrive in Australian waters for the first time with an official ceremonial welcome in Darwin on Sunday 12th May.
That evening, she will commence a 10-night venture through West Papua on its second itinerary, “Wildlife and Warriors”, before returning to Darwin to resume the Kimberley season.
The itineraries combine expedition cruising in remote coastal waters with warm Australian hospitality as travellers get even closer to places that haven’t been explored before.
