Will I have access to the internet and phone service?
Once the Reef Prince leaves port there is generally no service. There may be a limited time with reception as we pass the iron ore mining areas of Cockatoo and Koolan Islands.
There is a satellite phone in the wheelhouse for emergency contact between the ship and land.
Onboard is a system for limited internet and satellite communications. For a one off fee of $60, guests can purchase an internet pack which allows you 100mb of data per day. This is satellite based and can be assessed for the entire trip. It’s not much and you won’t be able to live stream sport or your favourite mini-series, but you will be able to send and receive texts, browse social media and make phone calls through apps such as messenger and whats-app.

What do we do at night?
After a scrumptious dinner and dessert, your cruise director will ensure you are entertained. We often hold a trivia/quiz night, alfresco dining evenings that guests want never to end and themed or fancy dress parties. It’s not uncommon for guests to have a birthday or anniversary onboard – so any excuse for a party!
There may be options to fish in the early evening, set up the outside lights for crocodile, fish and shark spotting, and then there’s the billions of stars amongst the Milky Way to sit under and enjoy a quiet evening drink amongst new friends.
Anyway for most of the time your cruise director is going to run you ragged with activities from dawn till dusk – every day – and it’s not uncommon for guests to have an early night in bed due to the 6am start that day and the same time the next day.
What are the meals like?
Our chef will tempt your tastebuds with a plethora of culinary delights. If you have dietary concerns, let us know so we can adjust your culinary experience accordingly. Our meals are based on healthy local produce and fresh seafood wherever possible.
A continental breakfast is served daily usually at 6am.
Every second day a cooked breakfast is served usually at 7am. This consists of treats such as eggs (done so many ways), bacon, mushrooms, beans, pancakes, croissants and mini pastries.
Lunch is normally served at midday and consists of normally 2 or 3 options of hot food, 3 different types of salads and maybe even a soup. Fish is popular at lunch time when you get out and catch some for the chef to cook…
Both breakfasts and lunch are a bain-marie style service.
Dinner is different. We encourage you to have a shower, change into something nice and be seated as dinner is table-service. Enjoy an amazing culinary experience for both main and dessert.
All the meals onboard are based on healthy local produce and fresh seafood wherever possible.
