Experiences / Expedition Cruises

Go beyond sightseeing. Experience authentic adventure.

Expedition cruising is the perfect blend of access, adventure, and, in many cases, all-inclusive luxury. Unlike standard ocean cruises or river voyages, the allure of expedition cruising is exploration and enrichment, and typically involves smaller ships, remote destinations, bucket-list experiences, and flexible itineraries.

The focus is about the destination, nature and wildlife, and to experience this not just from the water but up close on land. If you are an adventure traveler looking for an authentic, immersive vacation, an expedition cruise will exceed your expectations and change the way you experience the world.
