Several Antarctic ships encourage early booking by offering a reduced price (early bird offers) or additional value. These offers vary and are often changed (reduced) as the ships fill up. Booking early ensures you get a great price as well as the cabin you prefer and allows you the time to take advantage of any flight specials.
Occasionally there are late booking offers as well – though booking late has its disadvantages; often the flights will be more expensive – depending on the offer – the ‘saving’ can be less than the additional amount paid for your flights. Our suggestion is to make use of the early booking offers and allow us to book your flights as soon as they become available to ensure you get the holiday you want.

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 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.
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.
