Expedition cruises have become a “bucket-list” item for many adventurous and avid travelers. Though previously thought of as destinations only for the very physically fit, without the luxury of other cruises, high end luxury players are offering these adventures that include suites, butlers, and many amenities.
Expedition cruise ships are smaller than traditional ones in order to reach these remote locations and not damage the environment. They allow you to get “up close and personal” to local flora and fauna. Naturalists and science-oriented guest lecturers help make the experience come to life.
Though there is much in common with traditional cruises, expedition cruising requires a professional to help you navigate the differences and requirements. Kingsbridge Travel is an expert in expedition cruising. We partner with many companies to offer a range of experiences and are happy to discuss your particular requirements in order to find the right fit for you.
Here are some of the most popular expeditions:
- Costa Rica and Panama
- Galapagos Islands
Though some of the above are also offered by larger traditional ships, expedition cruising is a more personalized and adventurous type of traveling.
