The idea of doing a cruise we always relate it to summer, heat, sun and beach. We imagine a vacation full of relaxation, leisure and culture on board a ship. But this preconceived idea that we have must change because although the good weather does not accompany us, we can also make a full cruise winter.

They consist of a cruise ship trip but specially prepared for explore certain parts of the planet. Do not expect a relaxing trip, since it will not be.
