Exciting update from Island Escape Cruises (IEC) is this preview image of their new all-suite ship that is planned for delivery in August 2015.

To be named Horizon, she is 46m in length and will accommodate a maximum of just 24 guests.

IEC plan to employ the new vessel on itineraries in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and New Caledonia as well as existing Vanuatu and New Zealand cruising grounds.

She will carry three large landing craft for shore excursions, plus snorkel and fishing equipment, twin and single kayaks, paddle boards, a dive compressor and onboard helicopter for most cruises.

According to IEC's website, itineraries for Horizon will be released for sale at the end of November 2014
