Luxury Antarctica Expeditions
These expedition vessels merge impressive facilities with chic fixtures so you can discover this incomparable landscape in comfort. Many also have huge windows so you can admire the Antarctica’s beautiful landscapes without leaving your cabin.
Vessels that sail into the Antarctic tend to be small - your average ship will carry between 50 – 200 people – which makes your expedition even more memorable. You’ll be able to explore the Antarctic in smaller groups and earn from the vessel’s onboard specialist. Many vessels will also allow passengers onto the bridge to watch the ship navigate through the ice or try and spot wildlife.
