Book your 2024 Kimberley Cruise Now!

If you’re after a smaller ship cruise experience in the Kimberley, it’s definitely worth checking out the stylish 36-passenger M/v Reef Prince. One of our most popular Kimberley cruise itineraries, Reef Prince always receives the highest of praise from travellers, and this year her reviews have gone up another level again.

With just a handful of cabins still available for 2023 – and 2024 now selling fast – we thought we would share a few of the reviews we’ve received from our Reef Prince travellers through the first half of this Kimberley cruise season, they’re sure to whet your appetite!

Just a quick note to thank you for your professionalism in getting us on the cruise of a lifetime. There are no words to describe how happy David & I are. We had the best time. Reef Prince was just magical. From the captain to staff there was nothing we could fault. The food was to die for. We were so looked after from day 1. Paul tour guide was just fantastic. What an asset to that boat. Thank you again. Will be certainly recommending this to everybody.

Wow, what a sensational adventure, way surpassed my expectations and they were high to start with. The staff were amazing, Paul the cruise director was a wealth of knowledge and passionately shared all his knowledge and expertise. All the other staff so friendly, helpful, understanding and knew what you wanted before you even asked. The itinerary and day excursions were interesting, exciting, fun, adventurous and planned to perfection, truly they were incredible. The food, OMG the food, well GiGi the French chef was extraordinary, every dinner was like eating in a top fine dining restaurant, the lunches so fresh and delicious. Truly every meal was scrumptious. The boat was always clean and well maintained, my cabin was great, and the boat has many areas to go and chill out without being around all the other passengers. The lounge area has great views from sitting down so it was perfect. I have to say thank you for helping us choose the bestest cruise in the Kimberley.

Our entire trip was magical, including the amazing Kimberley cruise. We were so fortunate to have perfect weather and, yes, the waterfalls were spectacular as was all the scenery! Paul was an excellent guide (he spoke very highly of you!) and it absolutely met, if not exceeded, all our expectations. We loved everywhere we went.

An intimate and Stylish Experience

Reef Prince operates ten-night itineraries between Broome and Darwin and vice versa, covering off all the major highlights of the Kimberley Coast including King George Falls, King Cascades, Montgomery Reef and Horizontal Falls. Being a smaller ship, there’s also plenty of time for fishing and swimming throughout the expedition. In 2024, an extra night will be added to the programme, allowing for further exploration of the Berkeley River region of the northern Kimberley coast.

When you’re exploring the Kimberley aboard Reef Prince you’ll enjoy the relaxed and uniquely Australian atmosphere. Service from the crew is unobtrusive yet professional, and meals in the light and airy dining room constantly receive exceptional feedback. Reef Prince’s menus make use of the best local produce, supplemented by freshly caught seafood – if you manage to ‘land a barra’ or another local species during a fishing expedition there’s no doubt your efforts will be lauded over dinner!

Reef Prince State Class

Regularly refurbished, Reef Prince’s onboard amenities are of a very high standard, and there’s 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 2024 season you will need to be very quick.

Throughout the expedition, most days you’ll enjoy a range of morning and afternoon excursions, from exploration of the rivers and inlets in the comfortable aluminium tenders, 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.
