Adventure & Expedition Cruising

Spectacular scenery and discovery await

Kirsty Eccles CLIA Cruise Master

There is nothing quite like expedition cruising.

“The difference between an expedition and a cruise is significant. A cruise is you want predictability, you want safeguards, you want comfort. On an expedition you can have all of these things, but you’re also accepting mystery, uncertainty and some risk. You’re saying ‘bring on the adventure.’ ” – Kim Heacox, National Geographic Expeditions

An expedition will take you into the heart of some of the most spectacular wilderness on this planet, where you will explore lands virtually untouched by the human race. Walk the path of explorers, get up close to penguins, kayak icy waters, spot a polar bear or killer whale – whatever your goal we guarantee that you will leave your cruise with a thirst for more.

You don’t have to be an extreme athlete to explore some of the more remote locations. Most of the cruise companies offer programs and excursions that enable you to take things at your own pace. From the North Pole to the Antarctic region, the cruising options are many and adventure is guaranteed!
