The National Geographic Explorer is an educational cruise because it is fully staffed with professional academics and practitioners in the fields of geology, history and other sciences. On top of that, the National Geographic Explorer has an open-bridge policy, which encourages free interaction between cruise staff and passengers. Passengers are encouraged to ask questions and have conversations with the staff at all times. Also, the smaller size of this cruise allows it to access locations that larger boats cannot go, such as the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. Also, guided tours are available both on land and at sea.
