Cabins

Description

MV Coral Discoverer provides an intimate, yacht-like cruising experience to remote and fascinating places in the Southern Hemisphere.

Coral Discovery have been fully refurbished in 2016 raising the standards to new levels. Shallow draught  and advanced navigation with propulsion systems allow this ship to navigate through narrower passages and shallower waters which other boats can't reach. The ship can accommodate a maximum of 72 guest in 36 comfortable cabins. All cabins have air-conditioning, storage space, an iPod docking station, either a window or port hole and, the ones located on the bridge deck, have private balcony.

On-board wine cellar and stunning sun deck

The boat offers different social areas including a spacious and modern dining room, three fully-stocked cocktail bars, a sundeck with loungers to enjoy the weather and sea views, and a wine cellar featuring boutique Australian wines.

The talented chefs cook up plentiful and varied selections of local and international cuisine three times a day;  fresh continental or a hot breakfast, buffet lunch with a selection of hot and cold dishes and the dinner evening meals vary between a barbecue, brasserie or a three-course table a la carte dinner menu. Lunch and dinner are accompanied by a curated beverage list, featuring boutique Australian and New Zealand wines and beers.

Vegetarian, vegans, gluten and dairy-free items are included in all menus. The chefs will happily cater to other special dietary requirements with advance notice.

A true expedition vessel

A trademark Xplorer tender is used for shore excursions and for more intrepid exploration there are two zodiacs available. A  lecture lounge with multimedia equipment is where expedition briefings and presentations take place; and you'll also find a small library on board. Enjoy a daily program of lectures, briefings and themed documentaries and movies.
