Why choose an expedition cruise?

We all know what a cruise is, but what is an expedition cruise, and how does it differ from a traditional cruise?

What is an expedition cruise?

An expedition cruise is like a traditional cruise, but the emphasis is placed more on the experience ashore, excursions and ports of call, many of which are much more off-the-beaten-track than mainstream cruises. It is a journey undertaken by a group of people with a particular purpose, especially that of exploration, enabling a life-changing experience in a remote, natural environment.

Who is it for?

In my opinion, anyone who is curious about the world and loves to explore new destinations loves photography and wildlife. All those of you who love safari holidays, this is a natural extension!

Why Choose an Expedition Cruise?

Small ships, small groups and engagement with experts. Every ship has naturalists and other specialists, such as historians, marine biologists, and glaciologists onboard to guide you both on and off the ship. It is a very sustainable way to travel – some ships are 100% carbon neutral. You go way beyond the beaten track. You reconnect with nature.

You can go on zodiacs, sea kayaks, snorkel, hike, rock-climb, show shoe, ski and so much more! Expedition cruises are not about Broadway plays, lots of restaurants, and 101 different activities on the ship. The ship is a means to an end – it can still be luxurious, but the focus is on the destination!

If you are into making memories, I can promise you this will be one of the best memories you will ever make! You will never forget being up close and personal with so much wonderful wildlife.
