Exploring the polar regions of the world requires an expedition ship with a thick, ice-strengthened hull. No matter which you choose, you will enjoy comfortable accommodations and a touch of the elegant aboard these luxury small crusie ships. Make sure to pack plenty of warm clothes, because while it's nice and cozy inside these boats, the frigid air of the Antarctic waters will give you a chill if you're not bundled up. Aboard the ships, you can count on world class cuisine, various social areas, and well apppointed staterooms, often with ocean views or balconies, where you can see the whales breaching majestically out of the icy waters. Our Antarctic experts are here to help you plan your cruise to South Georgia, so contact us today to start planning.
