How To Experience 5 Star Luxury in Antarctica

How To Experience 5 Star Luxury in Antarctica

Remote and untamed, Antarctica is one of the most exhilarating adventures on Earth: a wildlife paradise and an adventurer’s playground. Pristine and untouched, this breath-taking continent will hold you spell-bound day after day whether it is admiring magnificent icebergs, watching breaching whales or walking amid thousands of penguins. There is simply nowhere comparable in the world.

Once, venturing to the Antarctic was only for the intrepid, with tales of adventure amid tumultuous seas. Now, an Antarctic voyage is considerably more civilised with custom-built ships with built-in stabilisers specifically to protect guests from the dreaded Drake Passage. In fact, cruising the Antarctic can be a luxurious, 5 star affair with cruiselines such as Ponant and Silversea offering exceptional service and fine dining whilst you venture into Earth’s final frontier. And there are plenty of benefits from exploring this icy wonderland from the comfort of a five star small ship.

Luxury, spacious cabins, butler service and gourmet dining is all part of the package when travelling on the luxury expedition cruise lines. After an exhilarating day exploring Antarctica with the onboard naturalists, biologists and marine experts, you can look forward to returning to your cabin to enjoy a relaxing drink from your freshly-stocked mini bar before a decadent meal prepared by renowned chefs. After dinner, perhaps take in a talk on tomorrow’s destination or enjoy the company of fellow passengers in the lounge. You may like to indulge in a spa treatment or simply retire to your luxurious cabin.

Luxury expedition cruising is exactly that – enjoying the adventure of expedition in the comfort of total luxury. We currently have several Antarctica fly/cruise packages available that are fully inclusive of pre-cruise accommodation, cruise, meals and beverages onboard, guided excursions and more.
