Introduction to the exciting world of small ship expedition cruises.
True adventures. Pampered luxury. Priceless Experiences.


As an active "Boomer," I can only think of few things that can give one more pleasure than walking where the great have walked and traveling to places less traveled and less known. One of those things is expedition cruising!

Most of us will never have the opportunity to seek our grand adventure by walking on the moon as did Neil Armstrong or traveling into space as did John Glen, but that does not mean you can't be an explorer.

With the rapid rise in popularity and accessibiity of expedition cruising you, too, can now experience adventures and environments that challenged such explorers as Admiral Bird and Sir Edmund Hillary who charted a new course through Antarctica. Now you can explore the Galapagos Islands like never before, discovering the mysteries and wonders that explorer Charles Darwin chronicled. You can even choose from expeditions such as following in the footsteps of the Vikings across the northern oceans, to delving into the deep frigid fjords of Scandinavia or those in Chile's wild Patagonia region; the exotic Amazon River that twists and wends its way across Peru and Brazil through immense rain forests; to exploring the ancient culture and ruins of greece, the mysteries of the Inca, and so much more.

The list of expedition cruise destinations is vast. Each voyage offers adventurous itineraries that will enable you to enjoy up-close and personal experiences — from magnificently wild, long-hidden landscapes to ancient cultures to incredible wildlife, both above and below the waters. The experiences you absorb and shiver in wonder and awe of on an expeditionary cruise will be — in one word — priceless.
