Travel specialists Abercrombie & Kent are expanding their cruise offerings next season, with luxury expeditions set to sail across all seven continents in exciting new and immersive ways.
Bob Simpson, A&K VP of Expedition Cruising says: “More than ever before, travellers are looking for immersive experiences – whether alongside a marine biologist in the Arctic, an Aboriginal culture expert in Western Australia, or a former NASA Astronaut in the most remote regions of the Pacific.
“Our expedition cruises are designed around engaging cultural exchanges, surprising wildlife encounters and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, led by the most accomplished scientists and native cultural experts from the communities we visit.”
The itineraries include brand new journeys across Europe, Africa and the South Pacific.
Some of the new itineraries include an eight-day voyage across Croatia, Montenegro and Greece, a 14-day Seychelles and Tanzania cruise and a 14-day day French Polynesia to Easter Island journey.
Other tried and tested itineraries remain such as the 15-day ‘In search of the polar bear’ voyage through the arctic, the epic 18-day Antarctica, South Georgia and Falklands trip and the tropical-flavoured Indonesia voyage through Komodo, Papua and the Great Barrier Reef.
Mr Simpson says the Mediterranean has been turning a lot of heads this year, which has led to a specially curated multi-cruise itinerary.
“We have seen such strong interest in the Mediterranean this year—our Greece cruise quickly filled up—that we’ve planned a series of cruises next fall that can seamlessly be combined into one 28-day Grand Mediterranean Voyage.
“Beginning with a cruise along nearly the entire navigable coast of Italy, guests add our new Adriatic voyage to Croatia and Montenegro and then end with Greece and lesser-known gems, including Patmos, Delos and Syros.”
A&K itineraries sail on charter ships from expedition specialist Ponant and are all-inclusive, with meals, unlimited drinks, shore excursions, Wi-Fi and more all wrapped into the cost.
