Luxury Expedition Cruises
We Select the Best Luxury Small Ships
For every Luxury Expedition Cruise we lead, our experts zero in on the newest and most advanced small ships, selecting only those most ideally suited for the destinations we explore. Exclusively charted by design, each ship we select is then further elevated to meet our exacting standards for luxury, comfort and safety, allowing us to combine the very best of everything — from the best ship and staff to the best itinerary and experiences — for the ultimate adventure at sea.
On our exclusively chartered voyages, we go further to limit capacity to just 150–199 guests — far below the maximum allowed for each ship. We do this to create a true small-ship cruising experience that features comfortable access to beautiful public spaces, a private balcony with every stateroom and suite, and one of the best personnel-to-guest ratios at sea at 1 to 1.3.
