It's a brave new world.

Expedition cruising is flourishing as the trend for adventure, connection and exploration rises amongst travellers and drives the need for new and interesting destinations across the globe.

Expedition ships account for almost one third of the orderbook with over 40 expedition newbuilds planned for delivery between 2019-2022 from 17 owners including luxury cruise lines building to meet consumer demand.

Expedition Cruising


A Virtual Voyage Like No Other

Despite the pandemic, three new expedition cruise lines launched in 2020.  

In addition to the 70 ships already in expedition cruising, newbuilds account for almost one third of the orderbook

17 owners, including luxury cruise lines, are building at a whirlwind pace to meet consumer demand.

That kind of growth is exciting.

It requires all of us to come together and manage it sustainably. That's why we launched our first ever Seatrade Cruise Expediton event earlier this year dedicated to the sector, and expedition specific programming to continue those conversations at the global event. 

We heard from Expedition veterans from organisations like:

  • Silversea Cruises
  • Lindblad Expeditions
  • Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours
  • Hurtigruten 
  • and more!

We dove deeper into Expedition topics covering themes like:

  • Regional Updates
  • Newbuilds & Design
  • Leaders Onboard 
  • Environment & Sustainability 
  • Crewing and more!
