Expedition Cruises


With the trend in modern cruising leaning towards voyages that take you off the beaten track, it can be said that expedition cruises are the new black! A whole new generation of smaller, more intimate expedition style ships are being built to meet this demand, and these ships don't just go off the beaten track, but to the very edges of the beaten map, where few others ever venture.

The kind of ship you can expect to find on your expedition adventure is diverse, ranging from specially-built icebreakers (which have basic amenities) to the ultra-luxurious, 6 star ships where you can find the highest levels of comfort and service. On board you will enjoy talks from geologists and naturalists, and be accompanied on excursions by qualified experts who will give you an extra insight into the destinations you explore.

Expedition cruise destinations vary, but are all joined together by a common theme of the unusual and the exotic and are ideal for the open-minded, curious traveller. Voyage down the mighty Amazon; discover the breath-taking coast of Greenland; or perhaps the majestic Terra Incognita that is Antarctica - chart a route less travelled and explore today with The Cruise Specialists.
