Expedition Cruise Deals

Reinvent cruising to the next level with expedition cruising!

Unlike any other form of travel, expedition cruising gives cruisers an opportunity to experience sites and cultures rarely seen by humanity. Get a taste of exploration with an off-the-beaten-path expedition cruise holiday that will afford you all the adventure you need from a comfortable, climate-controlled, purpose-built ship. Then, when you’re ready, take your adventure to the next level with Zodiac trips from the ship, providing further agility to get you even closer to natural wonders, coastal wilderness, secluded bays, wildlife and much more! Expect Zodiac landings on deserted beaches, up-close views of calving glaciers, forest hikes led by veteran naturalists, and spectacular views of breaching whales and sleek sea lions.

Why Expedition Cruises?

  • The world’s leading cruise industry body, Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), have earmarked the popularity of expedition cruises with cruisers of all ages making it a priority to tick these trips of a lifetime off their bucket list.
  • Most expedition ships let you explore the world in a smaller vessel purpose built to navigate closer to shore and through tight waterways as well as access remote locations that cannot be reached by large cruise liners, offering truly unique holiday experiences.
  • Once a niche market, expedition and adventure cruises are becoming progressively more popular as travellers discover that small ship cruising is the best way to get to see some of the world’s most unspoilt and remote destinations.
  • Get your camera ready as expedition cruising is more about the destination than the ship.
  • Soak in the knowledge shared by specialists who can identify the local wildlife or offer a cultural perspective on the place you’re exploring.

Where else can you experience an adventure that offers the same ease and convenience of unpacking once as some of the world's most amazing destinations magically appear the next morning!
