The APT Cruise Experience

Offering enticing adventure while in complete comfort, small ship cruising with APT is all about uncovering the world’s most fascinating destinations in style. Travelling to the extremities of the globe, APT offers two distinct opportunities for adventure.

Board one of APT’s very own boutique ‘Sky’ expedition ships to explore the fjords of Norway, the pristine Seychelles islands, and remote islands that lie between epic Iceland and the northern shores of Scotland. Or board a privately-chartered, luxury small ship in Croatia, Antarctica and the Kimberley Coast.

One thing that is certain regardless of the type of APT Small Ship cruise you choose to embark on, is that all feature comprehensive itineraries, packed with included sightseeing and intimate small group excursions.

APT  Cruises are best for 

The adventurer that wants to see the world from a different perspective, without compromising on luxury or comfort. Due to their boutique size, APT’s vessels enjoy freedom of the seas to venture beyond the regular tourist trail. Dock right in the centre of a city or town, or jump aboard a Zodiac and head for inaccessible locations with your expert expedition team.

When you travel with APT, everything you need and nothing you don’t is included and organised. So from the moment you depart to the moment you return, you’re able to relax knowing that all the little details are being taken care of. It’s the sort of luxury that sets you free.

Atmosphere & Experience onboard

On all of APT’s expedition ships and privately chartered luxury vessels, you’ll enjoy the benefit of spacious suites, well-appointed public areas and large outside decks perfect for taking in the ever-changing panoramas.

Every cruise offers the finest dining experience while aboard, thanks to the most skilled chefs on the water. A comprehensive range of beverages are also included while on board. With fewer guests aboard, enjoy uncrowded small group excursions and unparalleled access to the extraordinary destinations you explore.


Couples, singles and groups of friends that desire a more personalised, intimate cruising experience, as well as a willingness to learn more about the history, culture and wildlife of each place you visit.
