Coral Princess Cruises releases "Spring Special" on Kimberley expeditions


Coral Princess releases Spring Specials of up to 25% on selected Kimberley expeditions.


Australia and the South Pacific's pioneer of small-ship expedition cruising Coral Princess Cruises is offering Spring Specials on August, September and October 2012 cruises. The 15 to 25% discounts are valid on their Kimberley Coast expeditions aboard the state-of-art, 72 passenger small-ship Oceanic Discoverer and the newly refurbished 48 passenger Coral Princess. The 15% discount, offering savings of up to $3,057 per couple, may also be combined with Coral Princess's past traveller discount, an additional 10% saving.

The Kimberley wilderness of Western Australia is three times larger than England with a population of just 30,000. There is no better way to discover the remarkable Kimberley than aboard a purpose built small-ship, and Coral Princess's 10-night voyages between Darwin and Broome explores some of the planet's oldest and most awe-inspiring landscapes. The Kimberley's rivers carve their way through ancient, eroded mountains that were once the height of the Himalaya, dropping in champagne waterfalls such as the 80-metre King George Falls. Excursions ashore visit rock art galleries where Bradshaw (Gwion) paintings - the world's oldest known art - record a human history stretching back 50,000 years.

Exploring the Kimberley Coast in August, September and October affords guests the unique opportunity to experience the region's annual whale migration. The cruise also explores the 800-odd islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago, including an exhilarating Zodiac ride through the Horizontal Waterfalls, where the largest tides in the southern hemisphere force their way between rocky cliffs in a formidable display of the forces of nature.

Spring Special prices for the 10-night Kimberley cruise start at $6,517.50 per person for past passengers ($7,386.50 for first time travellers) aboard Oceanic Discoverer for departures on 07 September and 17 September 2012 departures. The discounted prices aboard Coral Princess start at $5,242.50 per person for past passengers ($5,941.50 for first time travellers) on 31 August, 10 September, 21 September and 01 October 2012 departures. The reduced prices include all meals, lectures and services of expedition staff and excursions.

As part of the Spring Special, single travellers will be able to avoid the dreaded "single supplement" when they travel on applicable dates, a saving of up to $5,095.

The discounts apply to all new bookings on selected departures and are available until 31 July 2012 or until sold out.
