Orion Expedition Cruises has one specialist expedition cruise vessel, carrying one-hundred passengers. Orion has visited some of the most pristine and sensitive wilderness areas and travels around the coasts of places such as Indonesia and Malaysia. The ship offers guests the opportunity for many new, and often unique, experiences in destinations that are relatively unexplored. Itineraries are perfect for travellers who consider themselves adventurous and are stimulated by discovering new destinations. At the same time, Orion Expedition Cruises appreciates the impact that marine tourism can have on delicate destinations (with little or no infrastructure), and is committed to managing this responsibly and sustainably, with the greatest respect for the environment.
Orion operates itineraries in the Kimberley region of Australia, the Australian Islands, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand and the Sub Antarctic, Melanesia, the Spice and Forgotten Islands, Antarctica and South East Asia and offers a range of expeditions that include the Russian Far East – also known as the ‘Land of Ice and Fire’, a circumnavigation of Borneo – home to the orangutan, Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia – where you can visit the temple complex of Angkor Wat, as well as the tranquil Inland Sea of Japan.
