Cruising is not just for your grandparents! Many young professionals and Millennials have been drawn to cruising due to the creation of these new expedition cruises.

Expedition cruises are cruises that are centered around your once in lifetime type experience such as kayaking through the Amazon and being face to face with an adorable baby monkey.

Expedition cruises are definitely the move and even shows like the Bachelorette has promoted them. Although the prices are not for the faint of heart the experience makes up for it! Here are some of our favorite expedition voyages!

Ritz Yacht Collection

The Ritz Yacht is smaller more intimate experience that combines adventuring and top-quality service. A personal concierge is assigned to each suite to ensure passengers are getting all their needs attended to and are more than comfortable while onboard. The name "Evirma" comes from the Greek language meaning "discovery" that pairs perfectly with the yachting lifestyle. “The great thing about yachting is you’re in complete control — whether you’re at anchor or at a dock,” says Doug Prothero, CEO and founder of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. “We have the ability to make something up as we go along — and that is the yachting lifestyle" (Travel+Leisure).
