Before your journey across the Atlantic begins, we’ll visit the picturesque island of Dominica, with its mountainous, volcanic landscapes. 

Understanding our oceans 

As you sail from Bridgetown to Reykjavik, you’ll be able to take part in an engaging program 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 sink your teeth into, 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’. 

You’ll also have the chance to reset your mind, body and soul through yoga, meditation, and movement practices, guided by a wellness team of specialized instructors. If you find the arts more soothing, you can channel your inner artists in one of our arts & crafts classes.  

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.
