Adventure Cruising

Adventure & Expeditionary Cruise Deals

Do you want to explore lost mountain citadels, zip-line over South American jungles, paddle a canoe down an African river or experience the Polar Regions? Then adventure and expeditionary cruising is for you!
Adventure cruises are driven by the destination and expeditionary cruising experience, rather than by the allure of a particular vessel. Adventure cruises are usually on smaller ships that are able to navigate narrow and shallow waterways that are otherwise inaccessible to other ships. These smaller vessels also carry fewer passengers, enabling adventure cruise operators to deliver a more personal and fulfilling experience for passengers. But, some cruise lines do offer adventure cruises on mega-liners, so your opportunities for a combination of adventure and luxury are endless.
Cruiseabout specialists are able to design adventure cruise deals just for you – for any popular or out-of-the-way adventure destinations. Just call one of our Cruise Specialists on 1300 769 228 or enquire online for more details.
