Join us for this spectacular 14-day journey featuring a nine-night exclusively chartered cruise to Antarctica, Earth's last frontier. Cruise aboard the intimate m.s. Le Soléal, one of the finest vessels in Antarctic waters, combining innovative design with personalized service and featuring private balconies in 95% of the deluxe, ocean-view Suites and Staterooms. Experience "The White Continent" in its unspoiled state—fantastically shaped icebergs, turquoise glaciers, bustling penguin rookeries and breaching whales—during the lingering light of the austral summer. Accompanied by the ship's expert expedition team of naturalists, board sturdy Zodiac watercraft for excursions ashore and observe the playful antics of this region's abundant wildlife—penguins and seals, in particular, are unafraid of human visitors. The expedition team will provide a series of enriching lectures on this pristine wilderness. Spend two nights in a deluxe hotel in Buenos Aires, including a tour of Argentina's vibrant capital city. Extend your journey with the exclusive three-night Iguazú Falls Post-Program Option.
