Experience our planet in one epic journey
There’s nothing routine about our pole-to-pole expedition cruises. They can be as beautifully unpredictable as a breaching whale – and every bit as awe-inspiring. Feel with all your senses the variety and beauty of our world as you voyage across the hemispheres. We have pioneered exploration with learning since our first expedition cruise in 1896. Now, sail with us and explore alongside scientists and modern-day explorers who will help you to discover the humbling diversity of our precious planet as it unfurls before you, one line of latitude at a time. You’ll never see the world in the same way again.
