As the industry-leading community with incredible worldwide reach and influence, Seatrade Cruise puts you at the forefront of change. And right now nothing is reshaping our industry quite like expedition cruising.

Expedition ships account for almost one third of the orderbook. 17 owners, including luxury cruise lines, are building at a whirlwind pace to meet consumer demand.

“With such healthy anticipated growth in such a specialised and sensitive area of the cruise industry, it is critical to the future of expedition cruising that this growth be managed sustainably and responsibly.”

Liz Gammon, Independent Cruise Consultant, Seatrade Cruise Expedition Ambassador

Seatrade Cruise Expedition is our new brand which will allow event attendees to meet expedition cruise line executives responsible for itinerary planning, port and shore ex operations, expedition product development, shipbuilding, and supply.

This new venture will enable exhibitors, cruise line executives, buyers and other suppliers to get together to explore new opportunities in expedition.
