Exploring The Exotic - Antarctica Cruise
by: Colin Hartness
Antarctica is one of the great unexplored areas of the world. It wasnít until
the last fifty years that there has been any appreciable exploration or study of
the vast frozen continent. Now the tourist with sufficient money can actually
view and set foot on this unique part of the earth.
The tourist season for Antarctica is restricted only to the months of December
through February when it is the peak of summer in the southernmost part of the
world. Only vessels equipped for the icy waters cruise to one of the coldest
areas of the earth. Three major cruise lines offer Antarctic cruises: Celebrity
Cruises, Orient Lines, and Radisson Seven Seas. Smaller specialty expedition
companies also offer other trips to this destination.
Celebrity Cruises travels to Antarctica with the polar icebreaker Kapitan
Khlebnikov, a refitted 1980ís Russian polar research vessel. This ship takes a
fortunate 106 passengers to the polar region with the amenities expected from
Celebrity Cruises such as pool, sauna, and gym. Accommodations are small by
comparison to a cruise ship
