If you are looking for a cruise which is a bit out of the ordinary, then you should consider an Adventure or Expedition Cruise. These are generally on small ships which enable you to visit places which just aren’t accessible to the majority of cruise ships, but that doesn’t mean the the ships or the amenities onboard are basic. Here are a few examples of the potential cruises you could choose from.
- Celebrity Cruises have the Celebrity Xpedition which can give you a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the amazing wildlife in the Galapagos Islands, where visitor numbers are strictly controlled
- If you want to visit the Artic or Antarctica, or perhaps Central or South America, but on a luxury 6 star ship, then Silversea‘s Silver Explorer could be the one for you
- Star Clippers has a fleet of 3 fully masted working Clippers, where you can experience the thrill of travelling with the wind, to such places as Costa Rica, the Caribbean, Nicaragua or the Panama Canal
- Hurtigruten offers daily departures along the Norwegian coast, giving you the opportunity of seeing the local wildlife up close, with the added bonus of the Northern Lights in the winter or the Midnight Sun in the summer, and they also have the MS Fram which can take you to Greenland, Spitzbergen or Antarctica
