If you're looking for an authentic, immersive expedition to some of the world's most remote regions, Aurora Expeditions is on hand to help you to experience rather than simply see each incredible destination. With a focus on nature and wildlife, a voyage with this fantastic cruise line will give you a front row seat to unforgettable sights such as king penguin parades, polar bears and sweeping landscapes. Onboard the ships, guests will find spacious public spaces, luxurious cabins and exceptional cuisine to keep them fuelled for the duration of their adventures. Coupled with world-class service and passionate experts dedicated to giving insightful glimpses into each destination, a cruise with Aurora Expeditions is a truly memorable experience.

Onboard Health and Safety

So that guests can carry on seeing the world on exciting expeditions, Aurora Expeditions have enhanced their pre-cruise and onboard health and safety protocols.

Prior To Embarkation

To be allowed to cruise, all guests must provide a Fit To Travel certificate from their doctor and fill in two pre-cruise questionnaires. As well as providing negative Covid test results 7 days before cruising and on the day of departure, guests will also have their temperature taken.


As well as deep cleaning of the ship between each voyage and cleaning of luggage before being loaded, cabins and public spaces will be regularly disinfected, as will frequently touched surfaces including furniture, door handles and rails. To ensure protocols are followed, crew will receive full training in the latest protocols. Clean air is also important, and to avoid recirculation, each room has air pumped directly from outside the ship.

When it comes to guests, social distancing will be maintained where needed and masks required in public spaces. Instead of buffets, all meals will be plated individually and served by the crew.


With free medical consultations, a doctor and paramedic, medication and emergency care equipment onboard, guests will be well cared for should they become ill. In the case that guests or crew display symptoms, several cabins are dedicated to isolation.


From the icy climes of the Arctic and Antarctica to the tropical heat of Costa Rica, an Aurora Expeditions cruise will take you away from the crowds and lead you to lesser known corners of the world, completely inaccessible for mainstream cruise lines. Patagonia, Canada, Panam and Nepal are also popular destinations. However, you don't always need to head too far from home to enjoy an expedition cruise. With voyages to some of the most rugged, remote parts of Ireland and Scotland, you can discover some of the UK's hidden gems.

Why travel with Aurora Expeditions

The genuine and absolute focus on the wilderness has led to the cruise line considering ways in which they can give back to and protect the environment. Committed to enhancing the efficiency of the ships, they are constantly investing in and adopting new ways in which they can reduce emissions and minimise their environmental impact as much as possible. Additionally, Aurora Expeditions provide grants to causes such as conservation projects, research, and environmental restoration.

As with all aspects of Aurora Expeditions, onboard activities are focused on destination immersion and wildlife. There are panoramic observation decks, a number of viewpoints, and even hydraulic viewing platforms which can fold away or protrude from the ship, allowing an unobstructed view of the surroundings. Thanks to the cruise lines' flexible itineraries, the ship will stop and allow guests to make use of these whenever interesting wildlife passes by.

In addition, guests will have the chance to enjoy a range of fantastic lectures, covering subjects like history and culture, biology and climate change. Sit back and relax in a spacious and comfortable lounge, while taking in an enriching talk from an expert.

Those who wish to adhere to their fitness regime can make use of the onboard gym in the Wellness Centre, or if you're looking to relax and soothe weary muscles after a day of exploring, spend time in a sauna or Jacuzzi. For the ultimate relaxation, spa treatments such as massages are also on offer.

Once evening comes, you'll be able to enjoy fine dining followed by drinks in the bars and lounges, served by friendly bartenders. With the backdrop of floor-to-ceiling ocean views, you'll be able to share anecdotes from the day's excursions with fellow adventurers.

To make the most out of your expedition cruise, it's essential that you are well-fuelled throughout. This is why each hearty meal is freshly made by the team of expert chefs, committed to providing excellent cuisine wherever in the world you are. What's more, meals are a social time so as you take your seat in the open dining restaurant you'll be able to share stories with fellow cruisers. In addition, tea coffee and snacks are available 24 hours a day, meaning there's no need to worry about going hungry.

For something a little more special, at the beginning and end of your cruise you'll be invited to the informal Captain's Welcome and Farewell drinks. Not only can you enjoy complimentary drinks and cocktail appetisers, but you'll also get to dine on an exceptional 3 course meal.
