Aurora Expeditions celebrates the launch of new global voyages with generous early bird offer

The Greg Mortimer in AntarcticaAurora Expeditions has launched its 2021/22 program aboard both the Greg Mortimer, and the Sylvia Earle, the world’s first passenger ships to feature the Ulstein X-BOW®.

The new program includes a diverse and exciting variety of new itineraries and destinations, including Antarctica and the South Sandwich Islands, Ireland and Costa Rica.

Aurora Expedition’s Global Head of Marketing, Victoria Primrose notes “We’re thrilled to launch our new program that will be run across our two world class, purpose-built expedition ships. The variety of our unique small group expeditions that allow passengers to experience otherwise extremely difficult to reach destinations, has resulted in phenomenal demand.”

“With the delivery of our second purpose-built expedition ship launching in October 2021, we have the ability to widen our offering. Whilst polar voyages remain core to the program, we have introduced new itineraries and destinations such as Ireland and Costa Rica which will offer our customers breathtaking experiences in some of the most biodiverse and impressive places on the planet.”

“We’ll also continue to offer a broad range of adventure activities on all of our voyages, from sea kayaking to rock climbing and polar diving1, so our guests can customise their trips and get the most out of their time on board”.

Launching with the new 2021/22 program is an exclusive early bird deal offering a saving of up to 30 per cent on new voyages booked and deposited by 31 March 2020, or until sold out, whichever comes first*.
