Family Travel

Shipboard life—perfect for a shared family adventure

New for 2018: the National Geographic Global Explorers program! 

Our exclusive family program, available aboard our Alaska and Galápagos expeditions, was developed in conjunction with National Geographic Education. This unique exploration-based program provides an unforgettable ‘smart-fun’ experience and guests under 18 will:

  • Have fun! They’ll take part in all kinds of cool activities—like learning about glaciers by making ice cream sundaes, or using glacial ice to paint water colors
  • Benefit from National Geographic certified field educators They'll optimize daily learning opportunities and fun for all ages
  • Connect with nature Kids have direct contact with wildlife and wonders, on land and in the sea
  • Learn to be a storyteller Kids and teens will be encouraged to use their creativity—with photos, videos, music, writing, drawing and more, to tell stories about all they’ll see and do
  • Develop their observation skills Daily “In the Field: Spot It!” activities will prompt kids to watch out for specific wildlife, and record observations in their Field Notebook.

Fun and flexibility for all ages

The National Geographic Global Explorers’ bulletin board is headquarters for daily activities and challenges, and kids can choose what they’d like to participate in each day. Schedules and activities both onboard and off ship are designed with families in mind: enjoy kid-friendly menus, movie night with pizza, a choice of hikes, and more.


Just sensational! Fabulous information, promised experiences and delivered even more, and best of all, always made it fun for us and always seemed like they were having fun, too!
