Top Zegrahm Expeditions Ships
As with most expedition cruises, life onboard Zegrahm's sailings is informal and packed with learning -- from onboard lectures and documentary film screenings to scenic sightseeing while sailing to active land-based excursions such as birding, nature walks, snorkeling and diving. Depending on where you're sailing, cultural activities -- like wine tastings and dance performances -- might also be included.
Zegrahm cruises are all-inclusive, meaning everything from your daily activities, lectures and tours to meals, transportation (not air) and gratuities are included in the price. Additionally, beer and wine are offered at lunch and dinner.
Travelers attracted to Zegrahm Expeditions come primarily from North America, are mostly retired and solidly in the baby boomer age group (60-plus), and are well educated with extensive travel experience.
