I need help in locating a ship that travels from Ushuaia to Antartica. I am looking at doing the cruise next Xmas and cannot remember the ships name or cruise line. I know that Princess and the Royal will be doing something similar, but as I have done the Royal and Sth America, the smaller ship sounded interesting. Apparently there is one that takes 12 days round trip and approx 50 or so psgrs. Who knows.
Thanks in advance
while there a larger "mass-market" ships that visit Antarctica, they are not allowed to land anywhere in Antarctica. Instead, they are only allowed to cruise the region. The largest ship which actually tenders passengers ashore in Antarctica is Orient Lines' "Marco Polo", a ship I sailed on last October, which I can very much recommend. I have a very comprehensive review of the "Marco Polo"
on my web site.
