Antarctica with Seabourn
Antarctica — It lay undetected for most of recorded time, beyond the margins of the known world. Even after someone stumbled on it, its isolation and the necessary rigors of the journey kept all but the most intrepid away. Those who did return ran short of superlatives to describe its magnificence. We go to Antarctica in a style undreamed by those ardent early pioneers. But what awaits us there — the snowy, sentinel mountain ranges, teeming penguin colonies and stately parades of monumental icebergs; the sight of an albatross effortlessly gliding across an ink-blue sea and the unexpected rainbow of mist arising from a breaching whale — all of that is virtually unchanged from the time before its discovery.
That is the magic of Antarctica, its timeless majesty and pristine beauty. Those who have seen it claim it’s impossible to adequately describe, that you must go yourself. We believe that is an excellent suggestion, and one we can assist travelers in accomplishing. Guests will be accompanied by a veteran Expedition Team, who in many cases have made Antarctica the focus of their life’s work. They’ll tell you what they know, point out what they think you ought to see, and step ashore with you to share the profound experience of adventure and discovery that brings them back year after year.
When you cruise with Seabourn, we promise a voyage that is nothing short of magical. See penguins, whales and other diverse wildlife, kayak around icebergs and massive glaciers, hike along the majestic continent and see the wonders of Antarctica up close.
Each cruise to Antarctica includes the following exclusive amenities and activities designed to enhance every moment:
- Inclusive zodiac tours and landings*
- Digital photography workshops
- Complimentary Seabourn expedition-grade parka and day pack
- Opportunities for frequent wildlife sightings from the ship and on shore
- Onboard Expedition team providing narration and insight to all aspects of the experience
- Inspiring Enrichment Program and special guest speakers on board
*Final itineraries are subject to weather, ice and other conditions and subject to change.
