Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards: Top Small Ship Cruise Lines Abercrombie & Kent earns a perfect score for itineraries and schedule. Abercrombie & Kent has been selected by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler as one of the Top Small Ship Cruise Lines in the world for the 14th consecutive year.
An adventure cruise immerses you in the exotic and the unspoiled. Each trip is a fresh, spontaneous, unscripted journey that is fundamentally different from a traditional cruise itinerary in all ways but one: comfort and service.
Each ship provides an on-board experience that is second to none. In addition, each is small enough to navigate the ports too small or remote for larger cruise ships, immersing you in the exotic and the unspoiled. With a small crew-to-passenger ratio, service is much more personalized and attentive, resulting in a perfect balance of exploration and comfort.
Our ship's staff always includes hand-selected naturalists, geologists, historians and adventurers who share their extensive insight and experience, whether through formal lectures or a casual chat over cocktails or on deck.
Climb aboard a Zodiac auxiliary craft – a safe, stable motorized rubber raft – to reach remote shores and coves where there are no piers or other docking arrangements. Zodiacs also function as exploratory vessels, specializing in up-close and personal encounters to give you the most authentic experience possible in your destination.
