Understanding our oceans

As you sail from Nova Scotia to Panama, 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 that were handpicked for their expertise, and explore the ocean’s hidden ecosystem through microscopes in the ship’s Science Center. You can also participate in Citizen Science projects, which contribute to current scientific research around the world.

Finding inner peace

This cruise isn’t just about learning, although you are sure to do that on this expedition cruise. Rest and relaxation are just as important. Take time to stop, watch the waves, reflect, and enjoy precious ‘me time’.

Help reset your body, mind, and soul with daily onboard yoga and meditation classes run by wellness professionals. These sessions will leave you feeling refreshed, recharged, and ready for your next adventure.

At the end of the journey, we hope you’ll leave the ship with your spirits lifted and a mind bursting with—and inspired by—new knowledge.
