Expedition Cruising

Although many people see cruising as a way to skip from port to port without worrying about driving and air travel logistics, for some, it's a way to reach remote destinations that you couldn't actually access by car or even by plane. It's hard to say whether expedition cruising to the far-flung corners of the world has become more popular as more places have become accessible, or whether cruise lines are traveling to these places more in order to accommodate customer demand. But either way, we're starting to see ships in the Poles and Papua New Guinea, in Melanesia, Micronesia, Borneo and beyond.
