CORAL Princess Cruises’ 72-pax Oceanic Discoverer has had a “minor” incident, hitting a reef near Papua New Guinea.

Early reports indicate that no significant damage or injuries were sustained.
According to a company spokesperson, the cruise continued as normal to its scheduled
conclusion the following day.

“The ship is in Cairns at the moment and is having her survey, part of which has been to inspect the hull as a precaution,” the spokesperson said.

The ship’s next voyage, a 15-night Melanesia expedition, is expected to depart Cairns on 28 Nov as scheduled.
