Expedition Cruise Destinations
Every journey is new and unique, every day unlike any that has come before. Itineraries are unstructured by design. Following only a tentative schedule allows for moment-by-moment flexibility. Stay longer at expedition destination sites of particular interest, or make slight detours whenever weather, nature or mere curiosity dictate. Your Expedition Leader will work closely with the Captain to ensure opportunities for adventure and exploration are the best possible, based on prevailing weather, wildlife activity and sea/ice conditions.
