What Is An Expedition Cruise?

What Is An Expedition Cruise?

An expedition cruise holiday is a type of sailing that combines the exploration of exotic destinations with the comfort and luxury of cruising.

It offers travellers an opportunity to experience remote areas, observe wildlife in their natural habitats, and explore some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes. Expedition cruise ships are typically much smaller than traditional ocean cruising vessels, allowing for more intimate experiences with fewer people onboard. They also often include activities such as zodiac excursions, kayaking, snorkelling or diving trips, hiking trails and other exploratory activities.

Expedition cruise holidays offer a unique way to travel around the world while still enjoying all the comforts you would expect from a traditional cruise line. Most expedition ships feature comfortable cabins with private bathrooms and balconies that provide stunning views of your destination; they also have spacious lounges where passengers can relax after long days spent exploring ashore. Many vessels even come equipped with libraries full of books about local culture and history as well as maps detailing routes through each area visited during your voyage.

Planning Is Key To Adventure

When planning an expedition cruise holiday it is important to research which ship best suits your needs – different lines offer different levels of amenities depending on what type of experience you are looking for.

Some cruise lines specialise in adventure-based itineraries such as polar expeditions or sailing through rugged archipelagos. Others may focus on educational voyages that incorporate lectures from experts in fields like marine biology or anthropology. And, then there are those that cater to luxury travellers who desire rather more sumptuous surroundings along with their explorations ashore, whilst still having access to all of the educational resources and expert professionals aboard.

The length and duration of an expedition cruise will vary depending on where you go – some may last just one week while others can span several months! When choosing your itinerary make sure to consider how much time you want spend at sea versus visiting ports along the way; this will help determine which ship is right for you since some lines specialise in longer voyages while others focus more on shorter trips packed full with shore excursions each day. Additionally be sure to check out any special packages offered by various cruise lines that aren’t offered by anyone else.

Unexpected Experiences

For instance, the ship Celebrity Flora offers a glamping experience out on deck whilst sailing the Galapagos Islands. Scenic’s Discovery Yachts feature two on-board helicopters and a custom-built submarine, enabling you to explore like never before.
Want to experience Antarctica like an explorer? Look no further than Hurtigruten Expeditions, who (via a silent auction) offer a unique, highly sought-after, and possibly unexpected experience… camping overnight on the snow and ice!

No matter what kind of traveller you are there is something exciting waiting for everyone aboard an expedition cruise holiday! From witnessing glaciers calving into icy waters off Antarctica’s coastlines to swimming among vibrant coral reefs in Indonesia’s Raja Ampat Islands – every journey promises unforgettable memories filled with new discoveries around every corner!
