A Guide to Expedition Cruising
Discover the joys of Expedition Cruising with Cathy Bartrop on board Noble Caledonia's MS Caledonian Sky, cruising the coastline and islands of Papua New Guinea. Unlike big ship cruising, here the emphasis is on the time spent ashore rather than time on the ship. That said, the MS Caledonian Sky offers an extremely comfortable base from which to explore really remote parts of the world.
A key feature of Expedition Cruising is the use of the ship’s zodiacs to go ashore. Being a shallow drafted ship, the MS Caledonian Sky can anchor close to shore in areas inaccessible to larger ships but the final part of your journey inevitably involves a short ride across the waves to either a beach or, less often, a pier landing. Many of the islands visited on this particular cruise rarely see cruise ships and passengers can expect an enthusiastic welcome from the locals.
