Luxury Cruises in Antarctica

Our Antarctic ships are unrivalled when it comes to safe but intrepid Antarctic expeditions. Far more robust, and smaller than standard cruises, our ships can navigate through the frozen waters that other vessels avoid. On board you’ll find them warm and comfortable, with fantastic views of the never-ending sun-sets, the most knowledgeable of naturalist guides, and a range of equipment to get up close to the wildlife. A luxury Antarctic cruise also offers the opportunity to camp out on the ice – but this is only for the most hard-core of explorers!
