You'll also have the opportunity to learn about the intricate balance of nature on the continent, and how human activities are impacting the environment as well.

What does a typical Antarctica cruise entail?

When visiting on a cruise to Antarctica, you will have the chance to participate in various expedition activities that cater to your interests, led by an expert team that is incredibly versed in local nature and safety procedures. Each experience is unique and offers something different for every guest, which makes it truly a special experience and one that many travelers dream of crossing off their list. Typically, you'll spend a significant amount of time on the ship, viewing the vast natural splendor while at sea, due to the geography and weather of the continent. While aboard the ship, you can expect to take part in lectures and talks about Antarctica's wildlife and natural wonders, as well as extensive preparation for the time you'll spend outside.

You'll also get the chance to visit Antarctica on land, where you will travel from your ship to the icy shores via zodiac boat, weather and sea ice permitting. These land visits are usually the highlight of Antarctica cruises and give guests a chance to get up close with some of Antarctica's incredible wildlife. Seals, penguins, albatrosses, and other seabirds are all common sights during these shore visits, allowing you the opportunity to take in Antarctica's unique beauty while listening to their enchanting calls. The seasonal nature of an Antarctic cruise allows guests to visit at the warmest time of year, which is also when the most wildlife will be out and visible too.
