Cruise Overview

Overview

Set off on the adventure of a lifetime on a Polar Latitudes Antarctic cruise. Discover the frozen wonderland of Earth’s southernmost continent, where mesmerising landscapes play host to unique wildlife, as you venture through one of the most remote and pristine places on the planet. Travelling on an industry-leading expedition ship with 1-A Super ice class rating, you will visit areas other ships cannot reach, whilst the highest level of comfort on board includes facilities such as heated salt-water pool, fitness centre, and sauna. Time in Argentina’s vibrant capital at the beginning and end completes your adventure.
