Luxuriate in 5-star accommodations
To celebrate the true essence of small ship cruising, each vessel features just 77 cabins in total — 80% boasting private verandas — plus a landmark 15 solo cabins (many with private verandas, too!). For those who love traveling in groups or who’d like more space, you can choose from four different suite accommodations, including the indulgent Owner’s Suite with amenities such as complimentary laundry service and priority spa reservations. You’ll also enjoy complimentary Business Class and Premium Economy upgrades with every suite for a truly deluxe experience. Modern and fashionably nautical, these elegant enclaves were designed to be your oasis after a rewarding day of discovery.
A groundbreaking green initiative
Navigating the world’s waterways toward a bright future, our new small ships embrace the flow of greener, more eco-friendly ingenuities. Alongside ULSTEIN X-BOW® technology promoting less fuel consumption and a GPS dynamic positioning anchor to leave the seafloor untouched, we’ve eliminated single-use plastics and ensured that your accommodation experiences support healthy ecosystems and sustainability while offering you all the amenities of a modern, luxury vessel.
Expert leaders to guide your discoveries
From your Cruise Director to our local guides, we personally handpick each travel professional to ensure their passion, knowledge, and commitment will help you fall in love with a destination, too! Our complimentary Concierge can help you tailor your journey, while our special Guest and Resident Lecturers will join you on your journey and oversee your historical and cultural enrichment specific to your destinations.
Reach more elusive and enchanting ports
You’ll be close to the action on these intimate journeys, each curated to bring you to the less-explored and far-flung harbors that are off-limits to larger ships. Not only will your cruise highlight costal wonders, but several itineraries journey inland for overnight stays in Phnom Penh, Sri Lanka, and Luxor in Egypt. You’ll revel in activities such as home-hosted meals with locals while you learn about their day-to-day lives, or sipping wines you can only find from small, family-owned wineries.
Discover your inner explorer on expeditions
On select expedition itineraries, a 5- or 17-member Expedition Team will be on staff to guide your adventures through Antarctica, Greenland, and South America. You can also enjoy your own pioneered adventures with access to kayaks, snorkeling gear, and paddleboards.
