Adventure & Photo Cruises

All across the globe, exploration ships—outfitted with a high capacity for fuel and food, and made with shallower hulls to ply new, previously uncharted waters. We match guests interests and preferences with the top names in small ship cruising as well as intimate, boutique ships and lodges that may not make the radar of most travelers.

These aren't your ordinary trips - the focus is heavily on adventure, beauty, culture and getting out and about in remote locations.


Why National Geographic? 

At National Geographic, there is simply no one who does it better!  The entire staff is in love the idea of exploring the world and knowing its wonders or having a fleet of ships to do it with and it shows. So, the alliance was a natural fit—and creates a wonderful proposition for today’s travelers.

Now, thanks to our alliance, you can take a National Geographic cruise on a fleet of ships to the planet’s most extraordinary places in the world and learn from world-renowned scientists, naturalists, photographers and researchers, while exploring stunning natural environments alongside skilled specialists using state-of-the-art exploration tools.
