10 nights cruising on the way to Broome.
Geo: -12.4718, 130.846

A short distance to the Fort Hill Wharf to board at 8am for a 9am departure. There was a NZ Navy ship Endeavour at the wharf and all those entering the wharf had to go through security and have their IDs photographed.

Our cabin is utilitarian rather than luxurious, and the bathroom is a moulded plastic nook. There is however, well planned and ample storage for clothing and personal effects.

There is a cruise leader and two guest lecturers on board. Most of our excursions will be via the "Explorer", a tender boat that can accommodate all the passengers and is stowed on a hydraulic platform at the ship's stern. There is also an inflatable "Zodiac" boat for uses not yet clear.

Built in 1988 and refurbished recently. Crew of 14 for a maximum of 46 passengers. Apparently in the recent refit they installed a fast wi-fi system. Not complimentary but the price seems reasonable, depending on the speed.
