Breathtaking and mesmerising, Antarctica is the epitome of intrepid cruising. The Antarctic region boasts whitewashed terrain as far as the eye can see, towering glaciers and icebergs on the horizon, and an array of endemic wildlife that reign supreme in this unforgiving land.
Did you know..?
Fossilised trees show that Antarctica once had a temperate climate and tropical forests some 250 million years ago, although it was submerged in 24 hours of darkness during winter and the converse amount sunlight during summer.
