Already, many of our most-popular Kimberley cruising small ships are nearing capacity for the 2023 season, meaning that operators are now starting to release their 2024 schedules to cater to the high demand. One of our favourite Kimberley small ships is the stylish 36-passenger Reef Prince, and with 2024 cruises now available you can secure your spot. Reef Prince’s ‘State Class’ and ‘Class 1’ cabins are always highly sought-after, so it pays to get in early to secure one of these cabins before they sell out.
When looking at Reef Prince’s 2024 schedule, perhaps the first thing you will notice is that the cruise duration for the Broome to Darwin and vice versa itinerary has been extended from 11 to 12 days, with the extra day to be spent exploring the magnificent Berkeley River in the northern Kimberley. While the extra day accounts for much of 2024’s price increase, who would complain about an extra day in the Kimberley aboard a fabulous vessel such as the Reef Prince?
An intimate and Stylish Experience
With no more than 36 travellers on each expedition, the small-ship Reef Prince offers an unforgettable Kimberley cruising experience. Reef Prince’s new 2024 itinerary operates over eleven 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!
