Expedition Cruising Update & Outlook | Quirky Cruise
Expedition cruising is poised for incredible growth.
Twenty-seven new builds and four repurposed ships are scheduled to debut from 2021-23 for 18 operators.
They’ll sail for new brands, established lines branching into the sector, and expedition stalwarts. The Swan Hellenic brand is being revived, and Atlas Ocean Voyages was created as the North American offshoot of Portugal’s Mystic Cruises. Established lines that are plunging into expedition cruising with dedicated new builds include Crystal, Seabourn, Victory Cruise Lines and Viking.
