Expeditionary Cruising

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

Welcome aboard our 2019/2020 Luxury Polar & Cultural Expedition Cruises.

Whether plying the Southern Ocean, retracing the Northwest Passage, 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 and Greece, as well as aboard exciting new cruises to Italy and Australia’s Kimberley.

Backed by an award-winning, expedition cruising legacy spanning more than 25 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.

2020/2021 Foresight

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 need to book early to secure the best suites and staterooms. Talk to your travel agent or contact us for up-to-date availability. We’ll register your interest in an expedition cruise with a nominal goodwill and ensure you secure the best cabin choices on our 2020/2021 departures. The programs, including detailed itineraries and pricing, will be released by mid-2019.
