Expedition cruise lines in attendance will be Seabourn, Silversea Cruises, Viking Cruises and American Queen Voyages.
Cruise Specialists is holding an expedition cruising webinar on March 8, 2022. The virtual session will bring together the leading cruise lines offering expedition sailings. Attendees will be able to listen to their offerings and ship and shore experiences. Cruise Specialists advisor, Gillian Clark, will provide a passenger perspective from her recent expedition cruises to the Galapagos and Antarctica.
Expedition cruising is a special niche of cruising that focuses on sailing to exotic destinations, on mostly smaller ships, and exploring the nature and culture of the destination. Popular destinations for expedition cruising include Antarctica, the Galapagos, Alaska, Scandinavia, and the Arctic. Typical expedition ships’ staff also include naturalists and historians who are destination experts and on hand to help guests take a deep dive into the ports of call.
“An expedition cruise is a great blend of adventure and luxury,” said Annie Scrivanich, Senior Vice President of Cruise Specialists. “These small ships offer comfortable cabins, gourmet food, and all the other amenities that you would expect in a cruise ship. As the ships are smaller, they can visit areas that are off the beaten path, offering guests a more customized adventure. Cruise Specialists’ knowledge of this cruising sector means our clients are expertly guided to the right voyage, and we welcome new expedition cruisers to this special event.”
