Good to Know
In which respect is it different from a classic study cruise?
On every “Expedition Knowledge”, you are not only accompanied by one tour guide, but by three to four prestigious experts with profound knowledge and vast experience. The wealth of knowledge of the experts, their lectures, the discussions and conversations in a personal atmosphere on board and ashore are what make our “Expedition Knowledge” so very special. You enjoy the luxury of the four- and five-star category on board and are not required to pack your suitcases or face tiresome transfers thanks to your “floating hotel”. Leaving you more time for unadulterated experiencing and understanding.
