Expedition cruises are on a smaller ship with a reinforced hull to break through ice to explore more remote areas of the world such as Antarctica. The ships can range from basic accommodations to suites with butler service. Zodiacs are inflatable boats to take guests to shore to see icebergs, view animals such as penguins, visit with local cultures and to hike to wildlife sanctuaries. Onboard guests will hear lectures from naturalists and scientists.
These cruises also visit environmentally sensitive areas such as the Galápagos Islands. Ship regulations ensure that staff and guests respect the environments they visit and that the ships themselves do as little damage as possible to the oceans in which they sail.
