Antarctica Cruises
Last Minute Special Offers

The current Antarctic cruising season lasts to late March 2024.

Don't trust to luck. Ensure your cabin awaits on the date you expect so you can arrange your travel and flights to fit.

It is possible to go to Ushuaia and book where you may save on the advertised full costs, this will still cost several thousand dollars as the cheapest cabins are usually all taken in advance. You need to stay in town during peak season and visit numerous travel agencies daily, ready to travel the next day - or not. Nothing is guaranteed, at some times there may be a choice of deals, at others there may be hardly any.

Current deals available at the time of writing, subject to availability
