The ship, which has concluded its dry dock in Singapore, has received a multi-million-dollar facelift, incorporating the addition of six Bridge Deck Balcony Staterooms, the first on any Coral Expeditions vessel. The remaining 30 staterooms have received full upgrades to bathroom fixtures, soft furnishings and artwork. The intimate expedition character of the ship that guests have come to love, has been maintained.
Mark Fifield, Coral Expeditions Group General Manager said, "Our inaugural Asia season is the perfect opportunity to welcome guests to a new chapter for our company. The Coral Discoverer was built to very high standards in Australia and this refit has ensured she remains the most comfortable small expedition ship afloat today."
The 20sqm balcony rooms now feature double or twin beds, ensuite, a couch, writing desk, and ample wardrobe storage. The rooms provide coveted indoor-outdoor living spaces with the private balcony opening out from French doors. Most staterooms can be configured to either junior king or twin bedding and all feature compact private ensuite, outside view, iPod dock, ample storage and Australian toiletries. All Coral Expeditions voyages are inclusive of all meals on board with beer and house wines during lunch and dinner service, off-shore excursions, ground transport and use of on board facilities.
Coral Expeditions’ Asia season features five itineraries exploring unseen small towns and islands of South East Asia including Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia normally not accessible by road or to large cruise ships.
