Celebrating Three Decades with the Most Intrepid Explorers at Sea
A&K’s 2021–22 season of Luxury Expedition Cruises marks the 30th anniversary of our very first expedition to Antarctica in 1991. I knew then that it could only be done in the hands of our most extraordinary guides. Like we always do, we sought out the very best in every field, from the best research scientists to Royal Marine commandos.
As we celebrate 30 years of luxury expedition cruising and more than 400 adventures at sea, we also celebrate this one-of-a-kind team. I invite you to experience their magic during this exciting new season and to set sail with me on a celebratory Northeast Passage expedition.
Founder & Co-Chairman, Abercrombie & Kent

Every A&K cruise is exclusively chartered to allow for maximum space and comfort. We select an ideal ship for every destination, include a private balcony with every accommodation and limit guest capacity to a number well below the maximum, all to deliver a luxury experience and one of the best personnel-to-guest ratios at sea.
Our expeditions are all-inclusive every step of the way. That means a remarkable lecture program, curated shore excursions on cultural voyages, and overnight stays in cities like Kyoto and Florence. Our guests also enjoy everything from an elegant culinary program and open bar to complimentary Wi-Fi, included gratuities and more.
