Throughout the expedition Reneke will be inviting guests to take part in a series of astronomy lectures and Q&As, as well as providing expert commentary throughout the morning of the total solar eclipse and regular star gazing sessions. Coral Princess’s flagship Oceanic Discoverer will be anchored close to the Indonesian

eclipse path, as part of a longer itinerary featuring Papua New Guinea and West Papua’s Raja Ampat and
Spice Islands. Guests will be able to
experience the entire three hour transition of the moon, including some three
and a half minutes of totality, where ‘day turns to night’ as the moon
completely obscures the sun.

New Guinea Circle program commences in
Alotau ( Papua New Guinea) on
23 February 2016 and incorporates the Eastern PNG coast, Raja Ampat and the
Spice Islands before concluding in Darwin, whilst
a shorter 14-night option from Wewak to departing on 04 April 2016 is also

Circle starts at $20,290 per person whilst the
14-night expedition is priced from $13,160 per person. Prices include all meals,
lectures and services of the all-Australian expedition staff and excursions
