Discover the world of Expedition Cruising

Expedition Cruises

Expedition Cruises are adventures for intrepid explorers, for people who want more from their cruise holiday than the "standard" of luxury and relaxation, for people who want to enjoy the indulgence of a cruise whilst exploring some of the most exciting and remote destinations on earth.

From the lush rainforests of South America to the frozen Polar Regions and every destination in between, your Expedition Cruise will take you to some of the most remote and inspiring destinations on earth. Meet locals and learn about customs and ways of life that are almost lost the wider world; see some of the most endangered and beautiful species on earth in their natural habitat; stand on shores and see sights only a small handful of travellers and explorers have seen before.
