Expedition Cruises

For a list of all
expedition ships, click here.
Expedition cruises are destination-based journeys that take you into some of the world's most exciting and remote locales. Popular voyages include Darwin's Galapagos Islands, where you'll meet golden-brown iguanas and magnificent frigate birds, and Papua New Guinea, where you'll learn about local cultures and exchange gifts with tribes. See penguins in Antarctica and polar bears in the Arctic or witness the rugged beauty of Australia's Kimberley region.

Expedition cruises include onboard meals and accommodations on ships ranging from the luxurious with a full array of comforts to basic vessels with limited facilities and amenities. Onboard naturalists accompany many voyages, and these experts lead shore excursions and offer lectures about the places visited.

An expedition cruise is a world away from ordinary cruising. From exotic wildlife and enchanting natural wonders to primitive cultures and ancient societies, expedition cruising shows you a side of the world you've never seen before and will never forget.
