Coral un­veils itin­er­ar­ies

Cruise Weekly - - NEWS -

CAIRNS-BASED cruise line Coral Ex­pe­di­tions has an­nounced a maiden 2019 itin­er­ary for its new ship, the Coral Ad­ven­turer.

To cel­e­brate the nim­ble new ad­di­tion, the com­pany will de­but a raft of new voy­ages in­spired by Dutch ex­plorer Abel Tas­man, with the trips de­signed to show­case the ship’s abil­ity to reach re­mote des­ti­na­tions in style.

“This is very much about go­ing to places that other ships can’t go to and the Coral Ad­ven­turer is specif­i­cally de­signed to go to these places,” said Coral Ex­pe­di­tions’ group gen­eral man­ager Mark Fi­field.

“This new ship does have some new fea­tures too in­clud­ing a new re­search room where we can in­vite sci­en­tists to ed­u­cate our guests and share the ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Coral Ex­pe­di­tions re­vealed the im­pend­ing ar­rival of The Coral Ad­ven­turer will mean a ramp­ing up of trade mar­ket­ing.

“We are look­ing at what we can do in terms of roadshows, we haven’t done a col­lec­tive Coral Ex­pe­di­tions road­show in a long time,” said sales dis­tri­bu­tion man­ager El­iz­a­beth Webb.

“We are also en­gag­ing with the NZ trade as well as the United King­dom, North Amer­ica and Europe be­cause we know we have the prod­uct so we just need to de­liver the mes­sage out there.”

Coral ex­plores a range of World Her­itage-listed sites in­clud­ing The Great Bar­rier Reef, Cape York, Arn­hem Land and many more.
