Expedition Cruises

Adventures in the world's wildest regions

Introduction

An expedition cruise combines the luxuries of life on board a superbly appointed expedition-class vessel with exciting excursions by inflatable Zodiac dinghy and onshore explorations of local wildlife and landscape.

Scandinavian and Arctic cruises are a spectacular way to view the Norwegian fjords and watch for polar bears, while South American and Antarctic cruises sail through the fjords of Chile, or past towering glaciers and innumerable penguins and other birdlife. Whale watching is superb at either pole, depending on the season.

Cruising deep into the rainforest surrounding the Amazon is an exciting option with a growing number of cruise lines, often coupled with a multi-port tour of the Caribbean. Alternatively, a voyage to the Galápagos is a fantastic way to view abundant wildlife, with sailings out of Ecuador and Argentina. In Asia, Papua New Guinea and Borneo cruises embark in Australia and New Zealand and can be combined with extended stays amid the regions' unique nature and tribal communities, while in Africa, safari cruises can easily be coupled with a spot of beach relaxation in Mauritius or the Maldives.
