Expeditionary Cruising

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


At Abercrombie & Kent, we have always believed that travel should take you somewhere unexpected. Naturally, as travellers ourselves, we understand and accommodate the desire to see the iconic sights and sites on any journey. But we also like to go further, to reveal the rarely seen, accompanied along the way by expert insights and surprising encounters, to create a richer, more authentic experience and a deeper understanding of place. This urge for discovery, for the genuine and the extraordinary, defines every A&K luxury expedition voyage we lead. More than a cruise, every exclusively chartered voyage we lead is a luxurious and adventurous expedition, backed by unparalleled experience at sea and on land.

Abercrombie & Kent would like to welcome you aboard our new 2019/2020 luxury Polar & Cultural expeditions. Whether you wish to see Antarctica or the Arctic, the Mediterranean, Aegean, Japan, the Kimberley and beyond, you can trust A&K to deliver the expedition of a lifetime. A&K’s expedition cruises have an incredibly loyal following. Demand often outstrips supply, with voyages filling quickly, and most departures selling out each year. You will need to book early to secure the best suites and staterooms. Talk to your travel agent or contact us for up-to-date availability. And if the departure or the accommodation class you want on a given voyage in our 2019-20 season is already sold out, we’ll register your interest and ensure you secure the best cabin choices on our 2020-21 departures.

Contact us to register your interest and secure the best cabin choices on 2019/2020 departures.*

It is not too late to book your expedition of a lifetime for 2018, there is still availability on Classic Antarctica where you can embark on an award-winning luxury cruise to the centerpiece of the Southern Hemisphere. Discover towering icebergs, impressive glaciers and wildlife in abundance the A&K way. 

2020/2021 Foresight

We confirm departure dates for the following year early in the year before, e.g. early in 2019 for 2020-21 voyages, but you don’t need to wait for that, you can contact us anytime to register your interest in an expedition cruise with a nominal goodwill deposit and we’ll let you know when exact departure dates have been confirmed.
