in its class. She combines the best and latest in ship design with maritime and
environmental technology. The expedition equipment includes Zodiacs and
fast tender to deliver the Orion expedition experience.

exploration and adventure, aboard small expedition ships able to inch closer
to those less visited, out-of-the-way ports or scenic wonders.

deliver inspiring daily lectures and briefings of historical, cultural and ecological
insights into the regions you are about to explore.
