What is an Expedition Cruise?

Since 1896, we’ve honed the art of exploring by sea, and our lineage stretches back to a golden age of pioneering exploration. Today, as then, we invite you to join us.

Expect the Unexpected

Embarking on an expedition, you’ll be travelling to some of the most remote and pristine places on the planet. These are areas where nature reigns supreme and where wildlife live free. Itineraries on our expedition cruises are not completely set in stone. This gives us the flexibility of responding to challenging elements and to grasp new opportunities for exploration as they arise. The option to divert from our course is an essential and exciting aspect of expedition cruises.

Experts in Exploration

Handpicked experts from a range of fields will deliver lectures, guide onshore visits, and take guests kayaking and expedition boat cruising while fostering their sense of wonder in the places we visit. 

The Destinations

Go beyond the usual highlights and iconic cities, going further to remote communities and hidden vistas few get to see. Encounter rare and exotic wildlife all around you, from elks to eagles, penguins to polar bears, and walruses to whales. An expedition cruise with us ventures to places many have only ever dreamed about: Antarctica, Alaska, Norway, Lake Titicaca, the Northwest Passage, Machu Picchu, the Caribbean, the Gálapagos Islands, Svalbard, the British Isles… the list goes on.

Green Pioneers

Exploring our blue planet for more than a century has taught us the importance of being green. From our state-of-the-art hybrid electric ships, our ban on single-use plastics, and our focus on environmental protection, our desire to drive change for good sits at the heart of our ethos.

Science Focus

With our onboard scientists and science center we are proud to boast the most extensive science programme in the industry. We bring nature right into the heart of our ships where guests can learn more about our destinations and contribute to important global research.
