Let’s face it: when most people think of cruises, they picture palm trees and white sand beaches, and maybe relaxing poolside with a cool drink in hand. While that doesn’t sound half-bad, there’s also more to cruise holidays than meets the eye! Adventure cruises provide all of the luxury and relaxation of your standard tropical getaway, but tend to focus more on allowing guests to immerse themselves in local culture and the environment.

With many options from different cruise lines, myriad sight-seeing opportunities and a wealth of exciting activities from which to choose, every moment will become a cherished memory.

Adventure Awaits

Since everyone has their own definition of “adventure”, it’s difficult to sum up an “Adventure cruise”. Their main feature, however, is that they visit ports that are lesser-known, and tend to use small ships which can help immerse passengers in the action.  Lines known for their adventurous journeys to places like Tahiti include:  Silversea, Seabourn, Regent Seven Seas, Paul Gauguin, and Azamara Club; while those looking for epic holidays in northern Australia can check out Celebrity’s Celebrity Xpedition, or North Star.

Take a trip “off the beaten path” by experiencing an adventure cruise that takes you to lesser-known, smaller ports. Enjoy being immersed in local culture on a tour, or utilise the special services offered by some lines, such as taking an excursion in an inflatable, rigid-hulled boat, SCUBA diving, riding in a helicopter, or checking out other watersports! Unlike some large cruises wherein you may feel a little overwhelmed by the sheer number of people around, adventure cruise passengers tend to experience the ports on a more personal level and develop a stronger connection with the port cities than they might on a busier cruise.

Your cruise, your choice

Whether you fancy a warm or cool region, there is a package available for you!   See penguins and glaciers on a cruise to Antarctica, or go whale watching in the Arctic. Take in unique wildlife in the Galapagos islands; go birdwatching in the Chatham Islands; or take in the culinary delights of the Baltic Sea region. It’s impossible to list all of the exciting locations, but if you’re enticed, simply think of your dream holiday and choose a package that suits your lifestyle.

Not your average holiday, an adventure cruise will bring you to places that most people never even imagine visiting! Awe-inspiring mountain views, winding rivers, and extraordinary animals await you! The best part is that you can experience all of this while living aboard a luxurious ship with every convenience at your fingertips. With at-sea entertainment, gourmet dining and an open bar provided, all you need to do is bring a camera to capture the memories.
