All cabins onboard are outside cabins and over half of them have private balconies.
Sail the Drake Passage and arrive at the white wilderness of Antarctica where you’ll spend five wonderful summer days experiencing both the wildlife and wilderness of Antarctica, and the Falkland Islands with its charming capital and sandy beaches Exactly where we go and when, is down to the sea ice and weather conditions on the day, but we’ll always bring you to the best spots available at the time.
Just as the icescapes change with the seasons, so do the wildlife. During November, you’ll see thousands of penguins courting and building nests. Whales are rarely seen until December and January which is also when penguin eggs hatch. By February and March, penguin chicks start growing up, and these are the peak months for whale-watching. Whenever you visit, you can join the Expedition Team in fascinating lectures, landings and ice-cruises.
