Choose an expedition
IN THE final week of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia’s annual month-long cruise promotion #ChooseCruise, the association is encouraging travellers to choose an expedition cruise for a true adventure on the high seas.
According to CLIA Australasia & Asia Managing Director Joel Katz, expedition cruising is one of the industry’s biggest growth sectors with nearly a quarter of the new ships on order classed as small or expedition ships.
“Expedition cruising is experiencing a surge in popularity that will continue for years to come as dozens of new ships take to the seas, offering more choice than ever before,” he said.
“Packed with enriching experiences from up-close-and-personal wildlife encounters in Antarctica to thrilling journeys deep into the Kimberley wilderness, expedition cruising is a great way to make an authentic connection with a destination.”
Katz also believes expedition cruises “are often the first port of call for travellers who don’t consider themselves typical cruisers, as well as the last port of call for frequent cruisers ready to try something different.”
