My photographer friend took a trip. Small boat, folks really bond, help (I think) with meals. I definitely am not looking for luxury, just want to keep warm, and have some options like Kayaking.

    I know http://www.gapadventures.com run cruise ships there. In fact I think they are the lead/best organized operator. We partnered with them to run the travel photography scholarship there. almost 7 years ago

    Check out Silversea Expeditions. They have a 2 for 1 sale in December usually. Great crew very safety focused, 2-3 lectures a day from experts in their field, weather permitting 2 landings a day to explore and hike on glaciers, see penguins and seals, etc. One of the best trips of my life!! almost 7 years ago

    Hi there. My dad and I took a trip with Hurtigruten back in Feb/Mar this year. We left from Ushuaia argentina and had a fantastic trip. Hurtigruten has several trips in different lengths and is usually cheaper than other lines. We went on the MS Fram and loved her. If you want to do any landings in Antarctica make sure you get on a small enough boat. The Fram is about the biggest boat you want to be on when you go down if you want to do landings. The crew was very professional and very happy which made the trip wonderful. The cabins are small but the public areas are floor to ceiling windows with great seating. The seas make the trip eventful so if you get sea sick make sure you get a cabin on the lowest deck, 3. The outings are usually easy walking with one or two good hikes with expert guides. You will be able to take a dip in the Antarctic waters if you desire. This trip did not have scuba or kayaking or camping. Dad and I both enjoyed the food, it wasn't anything fancy but it was well done. Any trip going down to Antarctica will be worth the cost! over 6 years ago

    I think you are smart to prefer a smaller ship; less amenities but an expedition quality voyage with more time for the nature. I highly recommend Quark Expeditions, they have several smaller expedition-class ships. They are top-notch. If at all possible try to include South Georgia Island, it's magical. over 6 years ago

    I think there is a tourist ship that goes from Punta Arenas, Chile. Also there is another that is from the navy that goes for scientific research. over 6 years ago

    Silver sea cruise. Small trips don't usually add south Georgia to the itinerary, choose the one that does, it makes a great difference, the island is amazing, truly unforgetable. about 6 years ago

    I went on Radisson Seven Seas (renamed Regent Seven Seas cruises, rssc.com) 8 years ago. They are small luxury ice-breakers which get you onto the Antarctica peninsula, ie every one passenger got to step onto the continent! Very pro and good expedition but not much night entertainment. The crowd is a little old though...

    As for Silverseas, they are great and by all means go with them IF they offer Antarctica cruises! about 6 years ago
