The Big Four – adventure: more cruises to Antarctica


We could perhaps be accused of stating the obvious when we say that cruises to the South Pole normally require a decent chunk of time. It’s not unusual for a cruise to last more than 20 days – and that’s not including the time it takes to travel. However, given the fact that not all of your clients are going to be so time-rich – we wanted to include some tours for those passengers who will need to be back in the office taking important calls before too long.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Expedition & Adventure guide 2015-16, each week we will be running our Big Four feature, which gives you four cruise options to choose from. This week it’s cruises to Antarctica.

Cruise Adviser top tip

There is usually a commitment – both time and financial – to be made when booking these trips. Don’t shy away from it – they’re worth every penny
