A Journey to Remember

Explore the World’s Most Remote Destinations with Seabourn Expedition Cruises


There are certain journeys you only dream of: exploring the Amazon River by Zodiac; kayaking through Icelandic fjords; walking among penguin colonies in Antarctica. You admire the earth’s most remote ecosystems from thousands of miles away, assuming that to see them up-close is the privilege of a select few.

But with Seabourn Expedition Cruises, that privilege can be yours.

In 2013, Seabourn sent its ship, Seabourn Quest, to explore Antarctica, led by a team of world-class scientists, academics, and general naturalists. Since that inaugural sailing, the luxury cruise line has set its sights on ever more remote destinations, bringing travelers face-to-face with reindeer grazing upon Arctic meadows, ancient Viking ruins in Icelandic villages, and the technicolor splendors of the Great Barrier Reef.

The adventures continue with Seabourn Venture, a new ship engineered to explore sought-after natural wonders off the beaten path. Launching in June 2021, with a sister ship planned for May 2022, Seabourn Venture is built with world-class hardware and technology. Each sailing will host a 26-person team of environmental scholars and researchers who will share expert insights on the biodiversity, history, and culture of every notable destination and natural wonder along the route. They will also lead formal presentations as part of the Seabourn Conversations program, casual discussions, and group outings—opportunities to meet like-minded travelers who share a passion for lifelong learning. Guests will have the chance to immerse themselves in the surrounding scenery with a plethora of onboard equipment, including Zodiacs, sea kayaks, custom-built submarines, snorkels, snorkeling and scuba gear. Even when not directly immersed in the outdoors, they will never be far removed from it, with 132 ocean-front suites (each with a private veranda).

Because of its diversity of culture and geography, first-time expedition travelers should consider cruising the Arctic, as any number of adventures are possible. Weave through cavernous fjords in Zodiacs, trek along verdant meadows by foot, and admire towering icebergs and bird cliffs by kayak. Visit a modern Inuit community in Nunavut, behold a centuries-old fortress in northern Britain, and taste klippfisk (a dried cod delicacy) in the fishing villages of Norway. Experience a journey that only Seabourn Venture can offer, with kayaking, Zodiac, and hiking excursions led by a team of expedition experts. Learn more about our Expedition sailings here.
