Cruise Overview

Deepen your knowledge of the oceans on this ten-day, science-focused cruise at sea, and enrich your wellbeing at the same time.

Deepen your knowledge of the oceans on a ten-day, science-focused expedition cruise at sea, and discover how this journey can also enrich your wellbeing.

Understanding our oceans

As you sail from New England to Panama, you’ll be able to take part in an engaging programme of hands-on lectures, workshops and classes that cover topics like marine biology and the history of sea navigation from the Vikings till now.

Learn from enthusiastic Expedition Team members, handpicked for their expertise, and use microscopes in the ship’s Science Center to explore the ocean’s hidden ecosystem. There will also be Citizen Science projects to participate in, connected to important live research worldwide.

Finding inner peace

It’s not all facts and figures though. Rest and relaxation are important too. Take many a moment to just stop, watch the waves, reflect, and enjoy some precious ‘me time’.

To help you reset mind, body, and soul, there will be daily yoga and meditation classes on board, run by wellness professionals. These sessions promise to have you feeling refreshed, recharged, and ready for your next adventure.

By the end of your journey, you might find you’ll leave the ship a different person to when you first boarded; spirits lifted and a mind bursting with new knowledge.


We'll help you plan where to go, when to visit and how long to stay
