Heritage Expeditions’ early bird discount, plans for industry first

Early bird discounts of 20% are available for bookings made by April 29 on the first nine voyages of Heritage Expeditions’ 2025-26 season
Heritage Expeditions is offering a 20% early bird discount on the first nine voyages of its 2025-26 season and is set to be the first expedition cruise company to visit Polilo Island in the Philippines.

The 20% discount is available for bookings made by April 29 on voyages exploring exotic destinations around the islands of Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia and along the Kimberley coast.

Japan and the Kimberley success

Commercial Director and Expedition Leader Aaron Russ said the company’s maiden voyages in Japan and the Kimberley in 2023 had been a tremendous success and it is eager to return in 2025.

‘People don’t necessarily think of Japan as an expedition cruise destination, but Japan has some 6,852 islands — most of them wild and remote.’ Russ said.

Cruise history

He said Heritage Expeditions will make cruise history as the first expedition company to visit the remote tropical outpost of Polilo in the Philippines on its ‘Asian Island Odyssey’ voyage from Taipei to Darwin in June 2025.

‘It has the perfect mix of unexplored paradisiacal island, incredible wildlife, both above and below the water, and a fascinating conservation history,’ he said.
