Adventure Cruising

Do you want to explore lost mountain citadels, zip-line over South American jungles, paddle a canoe down an African river or experience the Polar Regions? Then adventure and expeditionary cruising is for you!
 
Adventure cruises are driven by the destination and expeditionary cruising experience, rather than by the allure of a particular vessel. Adventure cruises are usually on smaller ships that are able to navigate narrow and shallow waterways that are otherwise inaccessible to other ships. This opens up new and exciting destinations, off the beaten track, providing passengers with opportunities to explore some of the worlds’ most amazing ecological and cultural wonders. These smaller vessels also carry fewer passengers, enabling adventure cruise operators to deliver a more personal and fulfilling experience for passengers. But, some cruise lines do offer adventure cruises on mega-liners, so your opportunities for a combination of adventure and luxury are endless.
