APT Announces Two New Kimberley Cruise Departures for 2015

August 29, 2014 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Award winning luxury cruise operator APT has announced it is adding another two departures to its Kimberley Coast Cruising program for 2015. The new dates are both for the 11-day Kimberley Cruise itineraries, one of which is from Darwin to Broome, departing 5 August 2015; and the other Broome to Darwin, departing 23 August 2015.

The new sailings are both aboard APT’s own luxury small expedition ship, the MS Caledonian Sky – a 55-suite vessel which offers capacity for just 110 guests. Onboard facilities include a Lido deck for al fresco dining, a sun deck, library, small gym and hairdressing salon, each suite enjoys ocean views, climate control, a mini fridge, sitting area, flat screen television and a telephone.

According to Rob Tandy, General Manager for APT’s Kimberley portfolio, the new dates reflect renewed interest in the Kimberley region as a cruise destination amongst domestic travellers:

“When we launched our new Kimberley Coast Cruising program three months ago, we had already increased inventory by 400 percent on the previous year to cater for increased demand. But according to our travel trade partners, there is still appetite for more product, so we have introduced an additional two dates to ensure they can cater to the needs of their clients.”

APT’s 2015 Kimberley Coast Cruising program features 14 itineraries ranging from 11 to 27 days in length,13 of which are matched up with one of six different APT small group Kimberley Wilderness Adventures land tours operating with a maximum of 20 guests.

As well as offering cruises aboard the MS Caledonian Sky, APT also offers exclusive charters aboard the Oceanic Discoverer. Offering all the comforts of a larger cruiser, it has the more intimate feel of a smaller style ship. Hosting just 72 guests, the ship features a Promenade Deck, an Xplorer vessel for shore excursions, and a range of elegant staterooms that each feature ocean views, an ensuite and air conditioning.

Proud recipient of the prestigious NTIA Best Domestic Tour Operator award for the past three consecutive years, APT works hard to ensure it grows its Kimberley Coast Cruising product in a way that is respectful to the environment and local land owners.
