Seabourn heading for Antarctica in 2013

In a first for the luxury all-inclusive cruise line, Seabourn are sending their ship Seabourn Quest to Antarctica in winter 2013. The only continent not visited by Seabourn before, means that Seabourn really do sail to all seven continents of the world.

Commencing November 2013, Seabourn Quest will operate a series of four cruises, varying from 21-days to 24-days duration, sailing between Valparaiso, Chile and Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Guests on board will experience five days in Antarctica, including scenic cruising of highlights such as the breathtaking Lemaire Channel, picturesque Paradise Bay and the Gerlache Strait. An experienced Antarctic expedition staff will ensure that guests enjoy the best of the hundreds of available sites for landings and cruising in smaller inflatable boats, based on real-time weather and wildlife reports during their Antarctic adventures. Scientists, naturalists and other lecturers in a number of disciplines will speak on board and accompany guests ashore to add insights to their once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
