Expedition Cruises


View our Expedition Cruising collection


Journeys to the Arctic and Antarctica are the epitome of an expedition cruise and offer you a truly memorable experience in remote and incredible corners of the world. Gaze in awe at majestic fjords and glaciers of the Arctic, every surface of cliff is populated with countless birds, and experience the jaw dropping sight of calving glaciers and giant iceberg-filled bays amongst the mountainous terrain of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Leave uncertainty behind and relax; everything's included
