A&K expands luxury expedition cruise range for 2023-24

Abercrombie & Kent has expanded its range of luxury expedition cruises for 2023-24 with the addition of four new itineraries in Europe, Africa and the South Pacific.

The new eight-day Adriatic Voyage: Croatia, Montenegro & Greece itinerary starts in Venice on September 20, 2023, and visits Split and Dubrovnik, then Kotor in Montenegro, and Greece, to visit Corfu and Athens (pictured).

Also new in Europe is the European Coastal Cruise: Portugal, Spain & France holiday – a nine-day itinerary featuring Porto’s wine country, Santiago de Compostela, Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum, Mont Saint Michel and London.

Bob Simpson, A&K’s expedition cruising vice-president, said: “We have seen such strong interest in the Mediterranean this year – our Greece cruise quickly filled up – that we’ve planned a series of cruises next fall that can seamlessly be combined into one 28-day Grand Mediterranean Voyage.

“Beginning with a cruise along nearly the entire navigable coast of Italy, guests add our new Adriatic voyage to Croatia and Montenegro and then end with Greece and lesser-known gems, including Patmos, Delos and Syros.”

The other additions are Cruising the Seychelles & Coastal Tanzania – a 14-day cruise from Zanzibar to Mahe – and French Polynesia to Easter Island Expedition, which sails from Papeete to Easter Island over two weeks.

A&K is chartering small expedition ship for each itinerary and will limit capacity to approximately 80%.

Simpson added: “Our expedition cruises are designed around engaging cultural exchanges, surprising wildlife encounters and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, led by the most accomplished scientists and native cultural experts from the communities we visit.”
