Your Cruise Ship

Welcome aboard the G Expedition, an intimate and comfortable setting for an extraordinary adventure cruise to the ends of the earth.

The 134 maximum passenger cruise ship is built to get you closer to some of our planet’s most amazing and remote places: The Arctic and Antarctic. Make your next cruise a trip you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

With its 5 cabin categories, the G Expedition suits all comfort levels. The beds are so comfortable, you’ll forget you’re on a moving cruise ship. All cabins are en suite, and have access to an outdoor view. Amenities aboard the G Expedition cruise include large public areas to enjoy during sea crossings and in between land excursions, the Penguin Library, a gear shop, a medical clinic with an English-speaking doctor, a fitness center, a sauna, and much more. Not to mention a friendly and professional hotel staff eager to make your stay the most comfortable possible. But a G Expedition cruise would not be complete without its large fleet of zodiacs, navigating you through the more remote Arctic and Antarctic paths, inaccessible by larger cruise ships. You’ll be able to get a closer look at all the endemic flora and fauna, and bring home some spectacular memories.

During a G Expedition Polar cruise, you will be led by a professional and highly-skilled team of on-board experts. Experts in everything from Geology to Marine Biology, these enthusiastic and knowledgeable crew members offer unique insight and hand-on attention you won’t find in a guidebook. With a 10:1 guest to expert ratio, you’ll feel a more intimate experience and a deeper understanding of the incredible polar regions. Head over to The Lounge daily for compelling debriefs of what you have seen during your land expedition. You will also receive interesting lectures illustrating what you might see the following day on your next expedition. The best part about a G Expedition polar cruise is that you can relax knowing you are in the hands of experts who really care to make your trip to the Arctic and Antarctic a magical one.

Each G Expedition polar cruise passenger will receive their own exclusive parka, included with their tour. Tour the Arctic and Antarctic in complete comfort with your high-performance parka, specifically designed for adventuring the coldest weather.
