Aurora Expeditions to Antarctica

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

The entirety of the 3 stars I'm giving goes to the expedition team and crew of the ship (they alone would get 11/10 stars). The sales, management, and administration of this company not only didn't earn stars, but lost them, and got very close to losing us as customers before the cruise even happened. I have literally seen better company organization on Carnival cruises. My wife and I are ...

Wonderful Cruise on a Beautiful Ship

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

After lots of research, my partner and I chose Aurora Expeditions because: 1) ships are small, meaning that there is greater opportunity for off-ship exploration, given the 100-passenger on-shore limit that applies to Antarctic landing sites, 2) ships are X-Bow with effective stabilisers, meaning that the crossing of the Drake Passage is likely to be relatively smooth, 3) it's an Australian ...

After a great deal of research into the many expedition tour operators that go to Antarctica, my friends and I chose Aurora. They have been leading polar expeditions for many years and have two new X-bow ships that offer the latest in safety and comfort. The Sylvia Earle is a beautiful ship with very comfortable and well-appointed cabins, two restaurants (both with very good food), a wonderful ...

We wanted the full Antarctica experience so included Falklands and South Georgia as well as Antarctic Penninsula. You’ll most likely only go once so go for all of it. This part did not disappoint at all. Expedition staff were overall young but very experienced and excellent, they worked extremely hard to get us off the ship as much as was possible. Presentations were well-researched and ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This cruise had the combination we wanted: small ship, remote travel, emphasis on wildlife viewing as well as ridge and beach walks/hikes, comfort, and well-traveled expedition guides. Following the trail of explorers searching for the Northwest Passage, we learned about the Franklin expedition and the many search expeditions that followed. Our days were filled with opportunities to go ashore ...

Had been to the Antarctic before but wanted to go again as the experience is like none other. It is closest one can get to being on another planet. Once you head south into the Drake Passage - the world as you know it disappears . Replaced by the most amazing scenery (icebergs , glaciers , whales , penguins, seals ...) Went with the Greg as the timing suited me as well as I wanted to ...
