Aurora Expeditions reveals 2022 itineraries and internal renders for Sylvia Earle

Expedition cruise company Aurora Expeditions has launched its global and arctic program for 2022 aboard both the Greg Mortimer and new ship the Sylvia Earle.

The program features 12 new itineraries and destinations that will take our passengers to some breathtaking and incredible remote corners of the planet, including the Russian Far East, Raja Ampat/West Papua, Alaska, the Northwest Passage and Baja California.

Launching alongside the new itineraries will be an exclusive early bird deal of up to 25 per cent off (terms and conditions apply, of course).

As part of Aurora’s 2022 global and arctic program, both the Sylvia Earle and the Greg Mortimer will visit some of the Mission Blue Hope Spots as championed by Dr Sylvia Earle herself.

These include the Gulf of California, the Coral Triangle and Misool Marine Reserve in Raja Ampat and the North West Passage.

Through visiting these places, Aurora Expeditions aims to raise further awareness on the importance of conserving these biodiverse marine areas.

Aurora Expeditions CEO Monique Ponfoort said: “At a time where international travel is at a temporary standstill, but we are all dreaming about future travel adventures, we are really excited to launch our new 2022 arctic and global program to give our loyal expeditioners some phenomenal new, remote and beautiful destinations to consider.

“With the upcoming delivery of our second purpose-built expedition ship the Sylvia Earle, it continues to be an exciting period of growth for the business.

“We hope these new itineraries evoke some wanderlust for those of us who are patiently ready and waiting to get out and explore the world again.”

And, after showing off what the Sylvia Earle’s exterior will look like, Aurora has shared internal renders for the new ship, which is on track for delivery in October 2021.
