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. In fact, there are cruises to Antarctica, and Costco would be happy to sell you one, at least if they could (more on this in moment). Below we outline Costco's Antarctic cruise offerings, as it were, explaining what a cruise to Antarctica is and how you can go about finding one. Read more [...]

Antarctic Cruises: What Can You See?

Antarctic cruises are one of the more radical cruise vacations that an individual can take. 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 [...]

Antarctic Cruises: What Can You Do?

We recently wrote an article about cruises to Antarctica, wherein we discussed some of the general features of antarctic cruises. What we concluded is that antarctic cruises (sometimes called "Antarctica cruises" because of the relative rarity of the adjectival form of "Antarctica") are kind of like a two-for-one deal because you get to go on a cruise vacation while simultaneously pursuing a specific end: visiting the antarctic region of the world. Since an antarctic cruise is vastly different than a standard cruise vacation offered through one of the major cruise lines (e.g., Carnival), we also concluded that a trip to Antarctica is best undertaken by a particular type of person, a person who enjoys adventure, exploration, and the sights of nature. In this article, we'll focus specifically on some of the things you can do on an antarctic cruise, which we were only able to touch on briefly in our last treatment of this topic. Read more [...]

Cruises to Antarctica

Not long ago, we wrote about whale watching cruises and how they are a great alternative to regular cruises, the ones offered through major cruise lines. Another great alternative to the standard cruise vacation is an Antarctica cruise (technically an "antarctic cruise" for reasons related to parts of speech), which will take you to parts of the globe that in previous generations were only the terrain of extreme explorers. Cruises to Antarctica are perfect for adventure seekers and nature enthusiasts, as well as for those who merely want to get as far away from civilization as possible. (These groups are not necessarily mutually exclusive.) Read more [...]
