Costco Cruises to Antarctica

To be informed that there are Costco cruises to Antarctica could be doubly surprising - you may not be aware that Costco offers cruises, and you also might not know that there are cruises to Antarctica.

Antarctic Cruises: Which Cruise Ships Sail to Antarctica?

Antarctica is a distant land to sail to, and it certainly isn't a routine destination for a cruise vacation (in contrast to places like the Caribbean or Alaska, for example). Yet people do take cruises to Antarctica, which means there must be cruise ships that take Antarctic Cruises, and indeed there are. These Antarctic cruise ships vary in style and the accommodations they offer, but they all tend to be rather small, holding only around 50 to 200 people.

Given Antarctica's placement on the globe (it's the southernmost continent), a cruise to Antarctica will be a fairly lengthy undertaking, although this of course depends on where you will begin your trip. More likely than not, you'll have to book a flight to a port that is far south of the equator - a port like the one in Ushuaia, Argentina, to which two British cruise ships were recently denied entry - and once you arrive to port, your journey to Antarctica is only beginning. However, when you do finally arrive to the Antarctic region of the world, you'll be rewarded with views that are rarely seen by human eyes. Read more [...]
