Aurora Expeditions Cruise Areas

Aurora’s fleet of small ships are chosen for their suitability to each destination, ice-strengthened in the Polar regions and shallow drafts for the tropics – allowing access to the most remote regions. The Polar Pioneer and the Akademik Shokalskiy spend their year cruising the world's polar regions and other wild and remote places; the Coral Princess cruises the tropical waters of Australia’s top end; and the Oceanic Discoverer plies the tropical waters of Papua New Guinea and Melanesia.
