Captain Cook Cruises

Captain Cook Cruises

Captain Cook Cruises offers you a uniquely Australian experience. Being a family-owned, Australian ‘small ship’ cruise operator, Captain Cook Cruises promise an experience off the beaten track to places that most cruise ships fail to reach.

Tour the Murray River on a historic and nature-based cruise, where you’ll find ancient red gum forests, towering gorges and limestone cliffs. Discover Fiji’s golden beaches, clear blue seas and remote villages on Captain Cook’s mv Reef Endeavour. You can experience a traditional Fijian village, tour handicraft markets and visit a local church and school, while still having plenty of time to relax and snorkel over amazing coral reefs.

On a Captain Cook cruise to the Great Barrier Reef, you can spend the day swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving among the fish and coral in the pristine tropical waters. Join a marine biologist aboard a glass-bottom boat, visit remote coral cays or discover secluded tropical islands and ancient rainforests.


A Captain Cook cruise may not be ideal as a family cruise as they do not specifically cater for children with onboard activities and centres. However, there is a Group Child Minding facility available onboard some of the cruises for children aged five to 10 years, and a Nanny Service for children up to four years of age. Advanced bookings are essential.


Dining onboard a Captain Cook cruise varies depending on your destination and which ship you are on. But no matter where you are, you can indulge in lavish buffets, and fresh, local produce. And meal times are a casual affair, so around the informal dinner tables you can share your adventures with new friends.

We won our trip on the reef endeavour through Cruiseabout! We had been on a P & O cruise before but the smaller ship was every bit as good but for different reasons. There was none of the casinos, shows or hoards of people but instead a very relaxing, intimate cruise where you got to know everyone on board, including the crew!! The Kava nights were legendary! Being on a smaller boat meant we had easier access to some of the remote smaller islands and a highlight was definitely visiting the remote villages and schools in the northern islands. My top tip if you do the cultural cruise is take school supplies for the kids - they really appreciate them! Another couple took a bag of 2nd hand rugby boots - the boys were ecstatic!
We had not thought of cruising on a smaller ship and would definitely do so again - warm friendly service from a wonderful crew. Thanks Cruiseabout.
