An exceptional ship

The best an expedition cruise has to offer

Thanks to her recent renovations (2018 & 2023), Exploris One perfectly combines adventure and an exceptional level of comfort, along with a personalized service of excellence which will make your expeditions unique.

She features 60 cabins and 12 suites, among the most spacious available on board expedition ships . Explorers will also be able to enjoy a fitness and well-being area, panoramic decks and lounges, as well as outdoor jacuzzis for a moment of relaxation with a view between two explorations.
