Embark on an expedition cruise and enjoy a very different experience from that of a conventional cruise ship. The focus is not about the ship itself but very much about about the destination, it’s nature and wildlife - and to experience this not just from the water but also on land. These expedition ships are ice-strengthened and can take you to the most remote polar regions and get you ashore. Expert guides and lecture staff accompany every voyage.
