The simply spectacular corals, tropical islands and colourful flora and fauna of the Great Barrier Reef have to be seen to be believed, and there’s no better way to appreciate the outstanding natural beauty of this UNESCO-listed wonder than on a Fred. Olsen cruise.

Admire the striking colours of the coral cays piercing through the crystal-clear waters; look out for rays, dolphins, sea turtles, giant clams and over 1500 species of tropical fish swimming between the dense reefs; and keep an eye on the skies to spot more than 200 types of birds all from the comfort of your ship’s decks.
