Expedition cruising is the perfect way to see the world less travelled. If you prefer to be a little more off grid with your holidays and would like a chance to explore the more remote parts of the world, then smaller expedition vessels are the perfect mode of transport.
Expedition cruising doesn't mean slumming it, in fact its quite the opposite! With boutique luxury expedition cruise line Ponant you holiday on a fleet of purpose built Luxury expedition ships, purpose built for visiting the remoter parts of the planet.
Luxury cruise lines Silversea and Crystal also have their own Luxury Expedition fleet of ships for adventures in the polar regions or destinations less explored.
Hurtigruten are progressively launching brand new specialist Expedition vessels, to compliment their Norwegian coastal fleet. You will find these loaded with scientific equipment and they come complete with onboard experts and guest lecturers to really immerse you in to the destination you are visiting.
Most Expedition ships come complete with their own fleet of zodiacs to offer their own intimate off ship excursions. Super luxury Expedition yacht Scenic Eclipse also comes with two helicopters and a submarine to ensure all tastes are covered.
Unique destinations such as Galapagos offer purpose built vessels designed specifically for the local ecology with new launches from Silversea (Silver Origin) and Celebrity (Celebrity Flora) which are sure to tick all the boxes for a unique luxury expedition experience.
