What is an expedition cruise?

An expedition cruise is similar to traditional cruising but with more emphasis on the destinations, shore excursions and experiences ashore.

There are many reasons to book an expedition cruise. An expedition voyage will allow you to discover some of the world’s most remote destinations, like the Arctic and Antarctica, and get up close and personal to unforgettable natural environments. Expedition cruises also enable you to experience untouched territories that bring with them fascinating flora, fauna and wildlife. Plus, with a team of expedition experts to guide you, you’re certain to learn a thing or two along the way!

Where can you sail on an expedition cruise?

Expedition cruises take you to some of the most incredible destinations in the world - not just picturesque snow-capped vistas but to South America, Australia, Alaska and the like. Norway is an incredibly popular expedition voyage destination, if only for the northern lights. To call them the northern lights is almost demeaning. The aurora borealis is Mother Nature’s most magical light show - more spectacular and breathtaking than anything you’ll ever encounter at a concert or theatrical performance. Blazing their beauty across an endless canvas of empty sky, the lights glow luminous red and green in an ever-changing tapestry of textures that will alter your perspective on our world. Whether you choose to view them from shore or ship, you’ll marvel at the almost science fiction-like vortex of colours shifting and dancing across your eyes in a peacock display of shades that you’ll never want to end.

Which cruise lines offer expedition cruises?

Hurtigruten is the expedition expert. The unique cruise line has been offering passengers a new take on the cruising experience since 1893, with each voyage featuring an incredible variety of unique sights, experiences and excursions. A passion for service is where Seabourn truly excels. Their fleet of impressive ships offers travellers the opportunity to cruise to many regions across the world, visiting destinations not accessible by larger ships.
