Tour Highlights

  • Explore the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula, a beautiful island chain filled with an impressive variety of wildlife.
  • Cruise aboard the perfect vessel for exploration. Ocean Victory’s inverted bow quickens the Drake Passage crossing as it slices through waves, reducing rolling by 80%—and helping to prevent possible seasickness. The ship is environmentally friendly onboard, with an implementation of the Green Initiative Program, ensuring both absolute comfort and sustainability. 83% of Ocean Victory’s cabins feature private observation decks.
  • Enjoy the company and keen insights of expert expedition guides, scientists, and lecturers throughout the journey.
  • Explore at your own pace, with numerous passenger landings and discoveries throughout the voyage, aided by a nimble fleet of Zodiacs and knowledgeable guides.
  • Join the optional Polar Camping excursion ($350 per person, subject to change; limited availability and weather permitting). With specialized performance gear and expert guidance, prepare for an evening beneath the austral firmament. Campers sleep unsheltered in a cozy bivy sack for the utmost connection to the environment—as hearty explorers have done in years past. Please book on the ship.
  • Join the optional Sea Kayaking excursion ($250 per person, subject to change; limited availability and weather permitting). This is a one-time opportunity to explore the outstanding grandeur and magical beauty of the polar regions using a kayak. Participants must have prior kayaking experience. Please book on the ship.
  • Take advantage of the ship’s impressive amenities, including two hot tubs, spa, gym, lounges, outdoor bar, and interactive dining experience.
