Orion Expedition Cruises
Orion is a purpose built vessel designed to access the inaccessible, all in 5-star luxury. The ship combines the best and the latest in design with maritime and environmental technology, comfort and casual elegance. From the ice-strengthened hull to the chilled champagne and superb cuisine, this is expedition cruising at its finest.
Orion offers a range of included and optional Shoreside Expeditions designed to enhance the destination exploration for guests. From Camel Safaris in Broome to snorkelling over pristine coral formations, there are many unique opportunities for guests to visit areas of Australia that even most Australians don’t get to see. As part of Orion's commitment to offering guests an enriching experience, on board speakers have been selected for their knowledge and expertise on the regions they visit.
