Antarctica scenery is breathtaking, the photos speak for itself 🙂
Cruising to Antarctica is pretty intense. First you have to cross the Drake passage which the wave can throw the ship up to 10 stories high and cause people to have extreme sea sick. Then you have to wake up almost every day at 6am , have breakfast. Then put on your parka jacket,life jacket and waterproof Boot and head to board the Zodiac boat. After landing, normally are intense hiking, walking and talking to the penguin:P. There are normally 2 landings per day and after that, people get back to the boat to have dinner. Sometimes when there is no landing, there will be lecture regarding Antarctica-pretty intensive. Well, I am just talking about in general, form my experience, the drake passage was calm as hell, the hiking was fun, and I met tons of new friends..including the penguins:)
Below are the oldest ship cruising to Antarctica and it’s still running. It’s a lot slower than normal cruise cruise ship but I guess a lot of Europeans enjoy taking it slow to Antarctica.
