Immersive journeys in all corners of the globe
Antarctica, Patagonia, the Galapagos, the isles of Northern Europe: if you’ve ever dreamed of visiting one of these remote and spectacular destinations, then an expedition cruise may be for you.
Expedition ships sail to all seven continents, from the lush rainforests of the equatorial Pacific to the snow-covered North and South Poles.
What makes expedition cruises different? Their deep focus on the history, culture and natural habitats of the places they visit. While still comfortable and luxurious, expedition ships are smaller and more intimate than other ocean-going vessels, so they can sail into smaller ports and reach locations that bigger ships can’t. You’re likely to meet fellow passengers who are as passionate and adventurous as you are, too!
It’s all about the destination. In lieu of onboard entertainment, the emphasis is education and adventure. Onboard enrichment programs are common, and specialized experts will often join your group to share fascinating insights about the places you are visiting. As a passenger, you’ll spend more time ashore, exploring on foot and hopping into smaller expedition vessels to see wildlife and coastline up close.
