Antarctica Expedition Cruises
Antarctica has long enthralled travelers taken by the splendor of this landmass at the southernmost tip of the globe. This extraordinary continent — and the doorway to the wildlife havens of South Georgia and the Falkland Islands — rewards those willing to trek its icy expanse with bucket-list experiences and wondrous adventures. Be greeted by penguin colonies as you debark a Zodiac boat along the shore and follow in the footsteps of famed explorers as you hike along rugged trails. Take an optional kayak excursion and lose yourself in the marvel of gliding peacefully among massive glaciers and floating ice. Maybe you’ll even catch a glimpse of a whale fin as it breaches the surface.
A Vantage polar expedition cruise takes you to these breathtaking regions in the far-flung corners of the earth, while still savoring the elegant atmosphere and world-class amenities of the 5-star Ocean Explorer. You’ll be joined onboard by 17-member Expedition Team — consisting of geologists, anthropologists, kayak masters, and more — who will expertly guide you in your exploration of these unique destinations. With daily nature walks, Zodiac landings, guided excursions, and informative onboard lectures, this is a truly immersive, one-of-a-kind experience for the truly adventurous traveler.
