Antarctica Cruises

Experience a cruise adventure like no other with a voyage to the Antarctic regions. Travel to a different world with the untouched islands and icebergs of this remote continent, witnessing truly majestic scenery that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. Sail past sparkling white and blue icebergs that tower above you, in a place of absolute serenity. You’ll see a wealth of amazing wildlife species in their natural environments including blue whales and penguin colonies. You may also visit Elephant Island, famed for both its elephant seals and as the refuge of explorer Ernest Shackleton.

Larger ships cannot traverse the waters of the Antarctic, so you know that any voyage to this region is one more of relaxation than of bustling crowds. Mid-sized ships can easily navigate the spectacular landscapes, whilst specialist cruise lines may even offer the chance to land on the shores of the Antarctic via tender, to let you visit research stations and meet scientists who dedicate their lives to the study of this magnificent region and its indigenous species. This is one place where you truly do not want to forget your camera, as the sights you’ll see here are something that you’ll want to share with your family for generations.
