What is a Luxury Antarctica Cruise?

Every person's idea of a 'luxury' cruise is different, for some it's a luxury to have state of the art facilities on board and for others it's simly a smaller cruise which has a personal touch. It truly varies from person to person. Our accommodation and style of ships is frequently scrutinized by our staff, ensuring the cruises we offer adhere to our high standards.

You can expect plenty of care and attention from the ship's crew, highly qualified expedition staff and excellent food and drink options.

Deluxe cruises to Antarctica have outstanding accommodation, with impeccable facilities and service. This is the crème de la crème of cruising options to Antarctica, with ships such as The Orion, Le Boreal and it's sister ships Le Lyrial, Le Soléal and L'Austral all classed as deluxe.
