Zegrahm Expeditions Teaches Travelers How to “Choose A Cruise”

New Guide Outlines Selection Process and Emphasizes the Diversity of Small-Ship Cruises

Seattle, WA (April 3, 2018) – From huge ships to small ones, luxury to budget, low activity to adventurous expeditions, the choices among cruises can be overwhelming these days. Now Zegrahm Expeditions, the world leader in small-ship cruises and overland adventures, is showing travelers overwhelmed by options how to “Choose the Perfect Cruise.”

Zegrahm’s educational guide walks potential passengers through the process of picking a cruise step by step. It outlines key considerations such as the number of passengers, onboard experiences, shore excursions, the desired level of luxury, preferred destinations and more. 

The guide underscores the ways that small-ship cruises can offer better staff-to-passenger ratios, more unique activities, and more intimate experiences than mega cruise ships can provide. It also showcases nine of Zegrahm’s upcoming expedition cruise options, which include extraordinary journeys to five different continents.

Highlights of the company’s warm climate cruises include Australia’s Kimberley: A Voyage to the Outback. This 15-day expedition aboard the Coral Discoverer gives 65 guests a chance to explore remote northwestern Australia. Activities include a helicopter tour over Mitchell Falls, seeing ancient Aboriginal artwork, watching wildlife in Prince Regent Nature Reserve, and guided bush walks on the Tiwi Islands.

Travelers interested in cooler climates will love Hokkaido: Japan’s Wild Island. This 16-day expedition cruise aboard the Caledonian Skytakes 100 passengers to one of Japan’s least-developed islands, which is beloved for its natural beauty. Guests will enjoy birdwatching on Teuri Island, exploring bustling morning markets, learning about the indigenous culture of the Ainu people, and visiting the “Floating Island of Flowers” in Rishiri-Rebun-Sarobetsu National Park.

For adventurers with a keen interest in culture, there’s Zegrahm’s Discoveries of Coastal Europe cruise aboard the 120- passenger Ocean Adventurer. Hopping from Lisbon and Porto (Portugal) to France and the United Kingdom, this 14-day expedition offers something for everyone. There are two extraordinary UNESCO sites, vineyards and wine tastings in Bordeaux, WWII history, and the largest square and the largest subterranean church in Europe. 

“With more and more cruise options available to travelers, we’re excited to offer our guests an alternative to the often impersonal mega cruise ships,” said Zegrahm President Van Perry. “We believe that small-ship cruises offer a better individual experience—more immersive, more informative, and ultimately more enjoyable. We hope our Choose the Perfect Cruise guide will help travelers work through the process of picking the perfect expedition for them.”
