Description of Antarctica, South Georgia & Falklands luxury cruise

There are 260 passengers on board this luxury cruise, and every room has a large window for iceberg-viewing – though on this amazing cruise you’ll spend much of your time on deck, out and about, and walking on Antarctica itself.

In 15 days you can not only touch the Antarctic Peninsula, but two other amazing stops, both crucial for birdlife. First up is the Falkland Islands, remote islands where the residents include a handful of British people, and a whole heap of penguins.

Then there’s South Georgia, which once played a vital role in early 20th century Antarctic exploration. The grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton, found on the island, marks the final resting place of the explorer, who led a series of extraordinarily brave polar expeditions. King penguins and enormous elephant seals live on its shores, giving you just a taste of what’s to come on Antarctica.

None of this will really prepare you for the Antarctic peninsula itself. It’s a beautiful, otherworldly place of pristine icy, glassy water and whales rolling slowly through the waves. Using zodiaks – small motor boats – you’ll be able to go ashore, and spend hours just exploring the waters, watching the amazing shapes of icebergs and the colonies of friendly penguins, before a stop at Deception Island on your way home.

Your cruise is supported by expert staff. As you head underway, staff give series of fascinating lectures on the land that awaits and how we must protect it in the coming years. ‘Life-changing experience’ doesn’t really begin to cover it.
