Antarctic Classic MS Expedition
Embark on a genuine adventure to the world's most remote wilderness on an Antarctic cruise! Our 11-day Antarctic Classic journey focuses on some of the planet's most impressive wildlife and dramatic landscapes of the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula.
This Antarctica cruise departs from the southern tip of South America across the legendary Drake Passage, and the wildlife spotting begins on deck with whales and scores of sea birds as common companions. The breathtaking scenery of the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula awaits. On excursions throughout the Antarctic cruise, you will navigate through the majestic passages and around icebergs and inlets to experience the plentiful wildlife of the area, such as seals, whales and immense penguin colonies. Opportunities to get up close and personal with the local wild inhabitants are frequent with shore landings and zodiac cruising. During our Antarctic expedition, our team of lecturers and guides will share their knowledge of the region's fascinating natural history. This cruise is the ultimate Antarctica vacation.
