National Geographic Orion Mediterranean Expeditions
The Mediterranean dazzles with its sun-drenched shores, turquoise seas, and ancient relics that bring to life some of the world’s greatest civilizations. Aboard the nimble National Geographic Orion, encounter famed destinations as well as lesser-known gems, from Greece’s iconic isle of Santorini and the walled city of Dubrovnik, to outlying Croatian isles and vestiges of antiquity in Albania and Turkey. Explore fascinating UNESCO World Heritage sites, stroll among medieval towns, and delve into powerful empires from the past, all guided by passionate experts who will illuminate the secrets and stories of the Ionian and Adriatic Seas.
“You may have been on a Mediterranean cruise before, but you haven’t comprehensively explored its iconic landscapes, rich culture, and storied heritage until you’ve been with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic.”
