If a cruise to Antarctica is on your bucket list, there's a lot to think about when it comes to voyaging to the planet's southern-most continent.
Each Summer during June or July, Poseidon Expeditions begins its North Pole season. The international expedition team leads three voyages a year to the geographic North Pole, hosting travelers from across the globe.
Every trip, every destination, and every adventure has a "Why" and for every traveler, that "Why" is different. Antarctica and the islands of the Southern Ocean are no exception.
Antarctica often feels so removed from the rest of the world; it is easy to forget that getting there requires going through some other fabulous destinations, too.
Polar expedition cruises to the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands typically embark in one area of Argentina, and sometimes disembark in another, providing the perfect opportunity to include some Argentine sights at the beginning or end of your voyage.
While Poseidon Expeditions prides itself on having a nimble ship, the 114-passenger Sea Spirit is still a boat of substantial size.
