We wanted to see the Kimberley and we decided that this was the way to do it without having to pack and unpack every day or so - do so with a degree of luxury. The trip started in Darwin and finished in Broome. When excursions are added such as Bungle Bungles, Mitchell Falls, Horizontal Falls, etc it makes the whole experience come alive and educational.
The whole expedition crew were very knowledgeable - especially the Expedition Leader (Mick Fogg) and this added to our overall enjoyment. The ships crew were always attentive and made the "cruise" part of the trip an absolute pleasure.
The 2 dining rooms were excellent and well serviced by stewards.
The cabin was half a Prestige Suite, but it was the same size, with balcony, separate en-suite, etc . it was ok - but it was the lounge half of the suite and therefore not as comfortable as the bedroom half of the suite. The cabin was always well serviced.
