A Selection of Ships

LUXURY

Antarctica Luxury Cruise

These luxurious ships combine more traditional-style cruising with an Antarctic adventure.  They offer large, very comfortable cabins with en-suite facilities and many have private balconies. The experienced expedition team enable you to explore the Antarctic Peninsula with Zodiac dinghies and come home to an exquisite ship with superior comfort and excellent cuisine options.

EXPEDITION

Akademik Sergey Vavilov Expedition Ice rating 1A Antarctica

Expedition ships have a greater emphasis on maximising time off the vessel or out on deck.  The expedition team works closely with the ship’s captain and crew to get you out exploring on the Zodiac dinghies and on shore as much as possible. Most voyages also offer kayaking and sometimes camping.  Cabins are simple and comfortable, the food excellent.  The ships are stable, fast and manoeuvrable.

FLY CRUISE

Fly-Cruise plane BAE 146 200 Punta Arena - King George Antartica

These voyages utilise a flight from Punta Arenas in Chile to King George Island (the largest of the South Shetland Islands, close to the Antarctic Peninsula) or to Mount Pleasant airport on the Falkland Islands where you board the vessel allows guests to avoid lengthy sea crossings. These flights also allow for more time in destination and a visit to Antarctica, the Falklands and South Georgia in a shorter period of time.
