Cruise company, One Ocean Expeditions will be venturing to more of the world’s remote destinations next year and in 2020.

Best known for its small-ship expedition cruises in the polar regions, One Ocean Expeditions (OOE) has announced that it will be sailing into more of the world’s remote destinations in 2019 and 2020.

The announcement comes with the expansion of the company’s fleet, as it celebrates its 10th anniversary year, with the launch of RCGS Resolute, a purpose-built expedition vessel suited for exploring remote and historically rich regions.

Expeditions on the schedule

The first voyage of the new programme, and the inaugural non-polar expedition on board RCGS Resolute, will venture into the maze of inlets and islands of the dramatic Chilean Fjords. 

The 13-night Chilean adventure from Ushuaia, Argentina to Valparaiso, Chile, will travel along an extraordinary coastline said to be one of the Earth’s last great wilderness regions, and the vast Patagonian ice sheet, the third largest ice mass on the planet. 

OOE will also venture into warm Central American waters next year, with an increased focus on active discovery. With two new American itineraries, the company is offering a combination of wildlife viewing with local guides, relaxation and numerous activities, all included in the voyage fare.

One of the American itineraries will be a cruise to Costa Rica, which alone has over 840 identified species of birds and more than a quarter of the country is protected national park land. 

The nine-night itinerary features exotic rainforests, white sand beaches, tangled mangroves and coral reefs, as local guides showcase some of the world’s most diverse wildlife, from howler monkeys to scarlet macaws and endemic species not found anywhere else. 

Other cruise destinations on the list include Panama, Mexico, the Islands of the North Atlantic, Scotland, the Faroe Islands and Iceland.

The cruises will be running throughout 2019 and will be sailing again in 2020 for those planning further ahead.

Group information

OOE offers space onboard its vessels for groups of any size.

The company also works with charterers for groups looking to book either half the vessel or the whole vessel on a charter basis.
