Description of Luxury Antarctica cruise

This Antarctica cruise is, on average, eleven days long and starts with a couple of days’ crossing of Drake Passage, our expedition ships well able to take on the ups and downs of this notoriously rough channel. When you come through it, however, you will see that the rewards are huge, and considered by many to be the modern explorer’s final frontier.

As well as the magnificent sea birds, including albatrosses and whales that you will hopefully see on Drake’s Passage, you will witness some of the most amazing midnight sunsets. Then once we get to the Antarctic Peninsula you have a world of icebergs, glaciers, towering ice cliffs and ice floes that never fail to amaze. Same goes for the wildlife that inhabits these mammoth land and seascapes, including minke, humpback and orca whales, penguins and seals. We have Zodiac boats on board our expedition ship for various excursions closer to land or indeed on land, where you will be accompanied by our expert expedition team. Anchorage points depend on conditions on the day, but It doesn’t really matter where, be it the South Shetland Islands or Paradise Bay, it is all extraordinary.

Our vessels

We use a selection of purpose built expedition ships, with strengthened hulls and Lloyd’s Register ice class notation for ease of passage through these frozen waters. Most sleep around a hundred passengers but cabin facilities vary, so do talk to us more about the ship that is scheduled for the date you hope to travel.
