Book your 2023 Kimberley Cruise Now!
If you’ve been looking to secure a Kimberley cruise in 2022 you’ve probably been amazed at how little space is left already. With a lot of cruisers deferred from 2020 and this year back to 2022 due to border closures, it has meant that cabins on some of the most popular Kimberley small ships are as rare as hen’s teeth!
With that in mind, we’re starting to see some Kimberley cruise operators release their 2023 schedules and prices now, considerably earlier than they would in normal circumstances. Already it’s possible to book the likes of Coral Expeditions, Diversity, Kimberley Pearl and Kimberley Quest for 2023, and in the last day or two we’ve just released dates and prices for one of our most popular, and best-value, small ships MV Reef Prince.
An intimate and Stylish Experience
Accommodating just 36 travellers, the stylish and intimate Reef Prince is guaranteed to offer an unforgettable Kimberley cruising experience. Reef Prince’s itinerary operates over ten nights between Broome and Darwin and vice versa, with all the highlights included, such as King George Falls, Montgomery Reef, King Cascades and Horizontal Falls. You’ll also discover a several secret swimming, fishing and Aboriginal art sites that Reef Prince’s expedition crew like to keep close to their chests!
The atmosphere on board Reef Prince is decidedly relaxed an Australian. Service is unobtrusive yet professional, and meals in the light and airy dining room constantly receive the very highest of praise. Menus make use of the best local produce, supplemented by freshly caught seafood – if you manage to ‘land a barra’ during a fishing expedition there’s no doubt your efforts will be lauded over dinner!
Recently refurbished, Reef Prince offers a high standard of amenity, along with five grades of accommodation to choose from. There’s no doubt that the spacious State Class and Class 1 cabins are in heavy demand, so if you want to snap up one of these during the peak season you will need to be very quick.
Most days on board you’ll enjoy a range of morning and afternoon excursions, from exploration of the rivers and inlets in the tinnies, through to stunning natural swimming holes, examination of the world’s oldest indigenous rock art and heart-racing adventures at Horizontal Falls and Montgomery Reef.
