Founded in early 2004, Orion Expedition Cruises has developed voyages that encourage guests to immerse themselves in the region they are sailing.
Orion is a purpose-built vessel designed to access the inaccessible, all in luxury. The ship combines the best and the latest in design, 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. All staterooms feature ocean views and offer Internet access, a flat-screen TV, DVD/CD player, a choice of twin or queen-size beds, a sitting area and marble bathrooms. Other amenities include a health spa with gymnasium, sauna, sundeck Jacuzzi and marina platform at the stern.
Orion Expedition Cruises offers a range of Shoreside Expeditions designed to enhance the experience in each destination, from safaris by camel to snorkeling over pristine coral formations. Guests also can attend presentations given by onboard speakers who have been selected for their knowledge and expertise on the regions visited.
