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-LUXURY

Greg Mortimer

As the name suggests these ships are a hybrid of an Expedition Ship and a Luxury Ship. Focusing on maximising opportunities for exploring as on an expedition vessel but with the added comfort of having larger, more comfortable cabins and common areas. Generally cabins are larger or perhaps the ship is newer than an Expedition ship. The cuisine is of a very high standard.

EXPEDITION

Ocean Adventurer

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.
