Antarctice Peninsula Cruise in January 2012

Hankering for an adventure? Why not try a cruise to Antarctica? This adventure of a lifetime is a great idea for a January cruise, as it is the height of summer in the southern hemisphere, meaning you will experience 24-hour light and not dark! This 10-night cruise on Silversea's luxurious Silver Explorer sails from Ushaia in Argentina and explores the Peninsula. Itineraries are not fixed as the captain will decide what works best with the weather- but expect to see a lot of wildlife including whales, seals and orcas, marvel at the glaciers and white landscapes of the southern continent, and go ashore in rubber boats to be greeted by the locals- penguins. A cruise in Antarctica is an experience not to be forgotten, and you will be amazed by the corners of our incredible world that most never have the chance to see. After 5 days of unforgettable exploring and sightseeing, it is back through the Drake Passage to Ushaia and reality.

About the Silver Explorer:
Purpose built for explorations like this, the Silver Explorer has a strengthened hull and ice-class notation for navigating Antarctic waters. her fleet of Zodiac boats allows guests to go ashore where there is no set landing place and a team of experts will educate and stimulate you to learn about the environment you are seeing.

Although the surroundings may be rough, the interior of the ship is nothing but luxury. Well appointed suites, exquisite dining- and even thought the Silver Explorer is a smaller and more intimate ship, it has many of the features that larger ships boast- a show lounge, casino, multiple dining venues, spa and fitness facilities. Pricing is all-inclusive, and this means 24-hour room service, shore excursions and fine wines, beers, champagne, spirits and any other beverages at no added cost. A Silversea cruise is a real taste of the finer things in life.
