Expedition

Cruising has definitely become more adventurous, with many of the top cruise lines offering expedition cruises to some of the most remote corners of the world. From Antarctica to the Arctic, Alaska to the Galapagos, an expedition cruise can take you to destinations usually not accessible to even the most intrepid of travellers. 

The off-the-beaten-track locations on these cruises are often not accessible to the larger cruise lines but the smaller ships, built especially for expedition cruises, can get right to the heart of the action and dock at the more remote ports of call. 

Discovery is the star on an expedition cruise with life on and off ship geared towards maximising your appreciation and understanding of the places visited. Shore excursions are real adventures with landings often made via inflatable zodiac boats on to beaches. Once on land you’ll generally explore on foot, accompanied by expert guides who will bring the destinations you visit to life. 

Back on-board your expert guides, often biologists, geologists and even anthropologists whose knowledge fits the itinerary, will give lectures to help you get the most out of the experience. 

Until recently, taking an expedition cruise often meant sacrificing some of the traditional comforts of a cruise, but this is no longer the case. Fine dining, sophisticated service and elegant interiors can be found on the expedition fleets of some of the world’s leading cruise lines.
