"Fly the Drake" - a well-designed and nicely executed expedition to Antarctica

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on World Explorer (Quark Expeditions)

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

I chose this expedition because it focused on locations immediately in and around Antarctica. Quark's "Fly the Drake" expedition departs from Punta Arenas, Chile - not by ship, but by a chartered 2.5-hour flight that arrives on a gravel airstrip on King George Island. This approach bypasses the Drake Passage and its potentially turbulent waters. Quark's expedition includes one night before ...

A four stars + hotel sailing through the Chilean fiords

Review for a South America Cruise on Stella Australis

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

My main interest was to visit the beautiful fiords in the South of Chile from a cruise that would also allow for some land visits in order to get in touch with the local nature - glaciers, specific flora and fauna. All these goals were fulfilled to perfection. Furthermore, the ship was most comfortable, large, clean and beautifully decorated; cabins were excellent, similar to rooms in a four stars ...

To the Ross Sea and Beyond

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Le Commandant Charcot

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This report includes information on our February 15—March 12, 2022, “Ross Sea” expedition cruise on the Le Commandant Charcot with Ponant. Although we had taken a “drive by” cruise of the Antarctic Peninsula in 2007 on the Golden Princess and explored “Beyond the Polar Circle” in 2020 on the Le Soléal with Ponant, this expedition offered the opportunity to experience much more of the Antarctic ...

Review for a South America Cruise on Ventus Australis

Love Patagonia
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

This has been our third trip with Australis; one on Stella and two on Ventus. The experience was fantastic. Tierra del Fuego is indeed Fin del Mundo. Australis made it possible to access enchanting natural places. It has offered frequent safe dismemberments which were accompanied by knowledgeable guides. Years after these trips we are still dreaming about the places we had visited. In fact, ...

Visit parts of Patagonia you could not otherwise get to

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Stella Australis

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Wanted to visits the Fjords of Tierra del Fuego. This cruise was the only way to access many of the more remote parts of Tierra del Fuego. We were also recommended the cruise by friends who had done it on honeymoon 20 years earlier. Highlights included the Darwin channel and Glacier Alley, Wulaia Bay and the zodiac trips to various locations. The catering and educational aspects of the trip ...

An extraordinary adveture

Review for a South America Cruise on Ventus Australis

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

This was one of the best travels that I have made with my family. The crew was very nice, and they made a great job to create a wonderful trip. The cabin was perfect; the food was also perfect. And the best part were the trekking and outdoors excursions. They were unique, in the sense that you feel that you are in the last southern point of the earth, and you are living a unique ...

Great cruise for a bargain price on sale.

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Roald Amundsen

10+ Cruises • Age 20s

I have researching Antarctica expedition cruises for a while. Let me start off by saying I got a bargain price for this cruise...it must have gone on sale for a week when I nabbed it. I might have been a little disappointed had I paid close to full price. Embarkation was quite disorganized. Busloads of people were brought to the ship at once and IF you knew your cabin number, you could ...

Trip of a Lifetime!

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Roald Amundsen

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We were not sure what to think about the Roald Amundsen after reading the reviews posted that we read before our cruise. We were concerned about the expeditions, our cabin and the dining experience/food. We are happy to report that we have very little that we could mention as being even slightly negative about our experience on this 17 day adventure. From the time we arrived in Santiago to spend ...
