The fleet of modern expedition ships is designed to travel to even the most challenging of destinations while providing a comfortable and stylish setting to absorb the wonders of nature.

Science is key to understanding the world, and that’s why some of the team are scientists. If you want to learn more, our teams are available to help use the onboard scientific equipment and will guide  you on Citizen Science projects which help ongoing global research.

Committed to sustainable travel and protecting the places visited means guests help pioneer a greener way of cruising.
