Set sail for adventure with Cruise Express
THERE has been a distinct change in the way we see and travel the world. No longer content to simply take photos of icons and famous attractions, the bold, modern traveller is seeking opportunities to go beyond the everyday and fully immerse themselves in new environments and cultures.
It has resulted in a huge growth in demand for specialist expedition cruises that offer adventure and an opportunity to discover remote, previously unexplored destinations, without compromising on quality or comfort.
Specialist expedition ships take passengers further into wilderness landscapes such as the Arctic and Antarctic, with daily Zodiac excursions ashore providing unique opportunities to get up close and personal with local communities and wildlife.
At the same time, Australian travellers are now increasingly inquisitive and determined to return from a holiday with experiences as well as a greater understanding of the world around them. Specialist expedition providers such as the luxurious Ponant line also have botanists, marine biologists, geologists and professional photographers onboard to help passengers capture the true essence of the environment they are visiting.
Fortunately, expedition cruise adventures are not limited to icy destinations! They are now a great way to discover the dramatic rivers and ancient landscapes of the Kimberley or Papua New Guinea. Onboard a luxury expedition ship, you can explore the 'Serengeti of India' to see Bengal tigers and elephants on a Brahmaputra River expedition or take some time to kayak and snorkel in the Galapagos Islands whilst cruising in gracious and intimate surrounds.
