The last-frontier ice desert of Antarctica attracts 45,000 visitors a year to view its windswept, treeless, frozen wasteland. Wildlife on show includes penguins, seals, birds, dolphins and orcas. Since most of the wildlife in Antarctica is found on the ice-free narrow ridges of coastline around the islands and mainland, cruise passengers don't have to miss out on any of the interesting sea, land or air creatures of this exciting continent. All travel ashore is by inflatable Zodiacs. Only 100 passengers per ship are allowed onshore at any given time, so guests on larger vessels will view the icescape from their ship. Watch in awe as icebergs are calved from the continental ice shelf, then race away in your Zodiac to avoid the wash.

Travel to Antarctica is from late November to early March. Vessels with ice-strengthened hulls include National Geographic Orion, Silver Explorer, and Ponant’s L’Austral, Le Boreal and Le Lyrial. These offer 10/11-night on-shore explorations with routes determined by the ice conditions. Zodiacs afford landing on the Antarctic Peninsula. They all embark and disembark at the eye-catching port of Ushuaia.

Not many large cruise ships visit Antarctica due to emission restrictions and limits to on-shore numbers. HAL’s Zaandam includes scenic cruises of the Antarctic peninsula over 21-nights between Santiago (Chile) and Buenos Aires. (For these voyages, take the return trip from Buenos Aires to the Iguazu Falls while you have the chance!). The luxury vessels Crystal Symphony and Seabourn Quest make the same journey in December and January of each year. For a longer journey there’s Prinsendam on her circumnavigation of South America in early 2016.
