APT Small Ship Expeditions, Polar Opposite Cruising

October 16, 2017 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Today, leading cruise and tour operator APT, launched their 2019 Small Ships Antarctica, Arctic & Northern Europe brochure detailing the perfect escapes for customers looking to explore the remote corners of the globe.

The new brochure comes paired with multiple Superdeals on all destinations, book clients by 31 July to take advantage of major savings.

A contrast to traditional cruising, small ship expeditions accommodate no more than 200 guests, have a high crew-to-passenger ratio, combined with a focus on niche sightseeing opportunities to provide a unique travel style.

In 2019 APT is offering itineraries in both the northern and southern Polar Regions, as well as small ship expeditions in Northern Europe, covering the Baltic Sea, Norway, Greenland and beyond, while offering land extensions in South America to complement Antarctica cruising.

The 15-day Classic Antarctica tour starts at $15,490pp twin share, setting sail from the most southern reaches of South America to cross the Drake Passage aboard the stunning Le Lyrial, an ice-class expedition ship that oozes European style and sophistication. A great addition to a range of South American land excursions, such as Machu Picchu, Patagonia, Rio de Janeiro and the Galapagos Islands.

For those whose clients are drawn more to the north, the 13-day Iceland and Faroe Islands small ship expedition cruise explores the land of fire and ice. Starting at $15,495pp, twin share semi-circumnavigate Iceland, the home of giant glacial icefields and mineral hot springs before continuing aboard MS Hebridean Sky to the faraway Faroe Islands to discover verdant islands that rise steep from the North Sea. Learn of a rich history of Celtic monks, Roman explorers and marauding Vikings before landfall on the isle of St Kilda.

The Australian family owned company has 90 years’ experience, ensuring when you book your valued customers with APT, you know you are booking the best.

“APT Small Ship Expeditions are designed to access ports that larger cruise ships cannot access throughout the Polar Regions and Northern Europe; without compromising on comfort to create truly unforgettable experiences.” explained APT Chief Executive Officer, Steve Reynolds.

With the release of the 2019 Small Ships Antarctica, Arctic & Northern Europe brochure agents can find all the small ship expedition cruising options in one convenient place.
