Welcome aboard our 2020-2023 Luxury Polar & Cultural Expedition Cruises.

Get to the heart of action: up close and personal with wildlife, accompanied by expert guides and naturalists.

Whether plying the Southern Ocean, traversing the Arctic in search of the polar bear, or exploring the outer reaches of Australia’s last frontier, A&K Luxury Expedition Cruises reveal the far-flung corners of our planet as no one else can. Join us on unparalleled and luxurious voyages to the Antarctic, Arctic, Japan, the Baltics, Greece, and Australia's remote Kimberley.

Backed by an award-winning, expedition cruising legacy nearly 30 years, we stake our reputation on every voyage — insisting on only the finest Expedition Team, vessels, excursions, planning and service. We limit our exclusively chartered vessels to no more than 199 guests, affording a private balcony with every stateroom and a peerless personnel-to-guest ratio of 1 to 1.3. And every voyage is truly all-inclusive, encompassing all excursions, meals, house drinks and onboard gratuities.

You need to book early to secure the best suites and staterooms. Contact one of our expert Journey Designers or talk to your travel agent for up-to-date availability and to learn more. We’ll register your interest in an expedition cruise with a nominal goodwill and ensure you secure the best cabin choices on our 2022-2023 departures.
