New Zealand & sub-Antarctic Wildlife Adventure – Departs December 20, 2011
The Antipodes and Sub Antarctic islands are rated by UNESCO with World Heritage status. Here wildlife abounds, a breeding ground for many rare and endangered species. Macquarie Island is home to 850,000 royal penguins and 150,000 pairs of king penguins as well as gentoo and rock hopper penguins and elephant seals the size of a small car. These expeditions are perfect for adventurers, birders and photographers alike.

Gulf of Siam Explorer – Departs October 10 & December 22, 2011
Thailand, Temples & Mekong – Departs December 15, 2011
Vietnam Explorer – Departs November 18, 27 and December 6, 2011

Our voyages to South-East Asia visit the coastline and islands of Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. From the organized chaos of cruising the Saigon River with its junks to venturing across the Mekong Delta and upstream to explore the historic Mekong River, the purpose-built expedition ship Orion II has the advantage of being able to penetrate the secluded backwaters of beautiful bays and access rivers where larger cruise ships simply cannot venture.
