Ocean Cruises in Antarctica
Antarctica cruises are increasingly popular as people become emboldened and choose to explore the furthest reaches of the planet, albeit from the comfort and stylish confines of a luxury cruise liner.
Sailings typically start in Chile or Argentina, with departures from Buenos Aires and Ushuaia. There are some that operate from Australia and New Zealand though and even a route from Cape Town in South Africa.
Highlights of an Antarctica cruise include the South Shetland Islands and Falkland Islands whilst on route, and the Antarctic Peninsula, Commonwealth Bay, Cuverville Island, Half Moon Bay, Paradise Harbour and Port Leckroy. Look out for penguins and other marine wildlife during the voyage.
These are just a handful of the options available though. You can also tailor-make your Antarctica cruise by adding a city stay before or after your sailing; Talk to destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
