Adventures Cruises from Luxury Cruise Holiday
Explore remote areas with an Adventures Cruise
Cruises now offer more adventure with cruising under sail and itineraries in the remoter parts of the world. Most cruises are on smaller ships able to sail where the larger ships cannot go, many have sports platforms from which to swim, kayak or launch inflatables to get closer to the action.
Soft Adventure Cruising
Larger and more luxurious cruise ships now visit the Arctic and Antarctica to view the incredible landscapes in comfort. Smaller up-close ships also offer a more detailed exploration of less harsh regions like Alaska and Mexico and the opportunity to snorkel and dive the reefs and islands of the Indian Ocean and Pacific.
If all that's not tough enough, try an expedition cruise around the Arctic, Antarctica or the Galapagos Islands. Typically, an expedition cruise will visit more remote and inhospitable areas and feature excursions ashore aboard Zodiacs. Experts in geology, botany and wildlife accompany passengers ashore and lead guided walks
Tall Ship Sailing
If you want to cruise under sail onboard a many masted tall ship, you have the choice of authentic sailing ships, modern replicas or the latest modern cruise-sail ships. The vessels are small by cruise line standards so the facilities onboard are limited but you will have the unique combination of sailing tradition with cruise ship comforts.
