Expedition cruise and luxury ships explore the lush coastlines of Vietnam and China's vibrant Hong Kong and tour Africa's Cape Verde to the Canary Islands. The destination is up to you - an expedition cruise provides you with the means to turn ordinary travel into a world adventure. Below is a complete list of expedition cruises and tours to worldwide destinations.
