Niche Cruise Reviews

What you can expect to see on niche cruises: spectacular nature. Cruising to Ilulissat, Greenland.

Niche cruise lines offer some incredible vacation experiences, that are not only enriching but also potentially life-changing. Hurtigruten plies the Norwegian coast, and sails to Spitzbergen, Greenland and Antarctica. Lindblad Expeditions operates the expedition vessel National Geographic Endeavour in destinations that span the globe.

Voyages of Discovery is an interesting cruise line. The company operates the ship Discovery, which originally entered service in the early 1970s for Flagship Cruises and then went on to claim the spotlight as the Island Princess in the ’70s television series The Love Boat. Anglophiles and “discoverers” will likely enjoy Discovery’s on-board ambience, where they can belly up to the bar for a pint of Bass Ale or shimmy up to the table for such British Isles favorites as Shepherd’s Pie, porridge, tea and scones.

Un-Cruise Adventures offers expeditions to Alaska, Baja California and Hawaii. I’ve yet to sail aboard these vessels but am looking forward to see what they have to offer.
