Expedition Cruises

Expedition cruising is like no other type of cruising.  It is less about the ship and more about the destinations. 

It is a taste of exploration and adventure in places that are off the beaten track, perfect people looking for a more active cruising experience. Expedition ships are usually much smaller than the average cruise ships, normally carrying around 100 passengers.  Shallow drafted ships mean that they can access areas no big ships can and are able to anchor almost anywhere.  Guests are then taken ashore by zodiac (an inflatable shore landing craft) to remote places that would have otherwise been inaccessible.

The benefits of taking an expedition cruise instead of the usual cruise, is the focus on education more than entertainment.  On an expedition cruise, the expedition team are often supported by a team of naturalists, guest speakers and lecturers who give presentations on everything from politics and culture, to history, geology, biology and the geography of the destinations these ships visit.

This style of cruising is more suitable more active guests and those people wishing to focus more on learning and enrichment. It provides an exceptional opportunity to enjoy many once in a lifetime experiences with like-minded people.

Several cruise lines have dedicated expedition ships and these include Silverseas, Hurtigruten, Scenic and Hapag Lloyd.  Popular expedition destinations are Alaska, Antartica, the Arctic, the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands.
