ADVENTURE

Adventure cruising is becoming more intrepid than ever, with lines building more innovative, sleek and luxurious ships to take you further and further afield.


Adventure cruises are usually on smaller vessels that generally carry fewer passengers, so guests get a more personalised experience. These cruises will normally have experts onboard that will teach guests about their surrounds and will also offer shore excursions like hiking, kayaking, whale watching, scuba diving and even helicopter landings on glaciers.


Cabins tend to be slightly smaller and there are fewer facilities and activities onboard. But these cruises are about the destination rather than the ship.


Adventure cruising can be more expensive than other types of cruises, but it will take you to places that most people only dream of, like the Galapagos Islands, famous for their unique wildlife, with Celebrity Cruises.


APT’s small ships take guests to destinations like the Arctic, where they can see polar bears and the Northern Lights; the remote Kimberley Coast to see the spectacular King George Falls; and the ice-clad peaks of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Luxury lines like Ponant and Crystal Cruises will also take you to these kinds of destinations, but in more luxurious style. In 2016, Crystal Cruises sailed through the Northwest Passage on Crystal Serenity after it was transformed into a world-class expedition ship. It took guests through a route that was only once able to be chartered on small ships, but guests onboard had their own butlers, luxurious suites as well as specialty dining – think the finest Japanese food and Italian cuisine.


For something a bit different, Aranui transports its guest aboard Aranui 5, a half-cargo, half-passenger ship which will take you to the remote Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia. Guests will see pristine beaches, swim in some of the world’s bluest waters and even deliver cargo to the locals, who are excited to welcome travellers to their island home.
