Fellow passengers

Your cruisemates are personable, educated, and well-traveled. Their long-held desire to visit Antarctica creates a common bond.

Open dining-room seating

You are not assigned a specific restaurant, table, or eating time. You dine where, when, and with whom you desire.

All inclusive fare

The fare covers many cruise items that are normally extras. These include tips, food and beverages. All Zodiac excursions in Antarctica are also complimentary.

Smoother sailing

A luxury Antarctica cruise ship travels more smoothly in rough waters than do lower-grade expedition ones because it is bigger and has retractable side stabilizers. And unlike converted ice breakers, they do not have rounded hulls. These qualities matter because sometimes the Drake Passage (open sea between South America and Antarctica) can get rough.

High safety standards

My cruisemates told me how impressed they were with the staff's disciplined devotion to their safety onboard, on land, and in Zodiacs. Moreover, luxury cruise ships have ice-strengthened hulls - and bow thrusters to boost maneuverability in icy bays and channels.
