For those who like to make the most of every day. Small ship expedition cruising is all about venturing further, seeing more, and doing more, while also enjoying great food, wine and a little pampering along the way. We stay close to the coastline, where larger ships cannot venture, and use Zodiac vessels to reach isolated spots.
