Antarctica Ships

Polar Cruises offers a wide variety of ships - from rustic to absolute luxury. All are expedition ships, considerably smaller than a typical cruise ship, with a team of naturalist guides versed in the local flora, fauna, environment and history.

Each type of ship offers its unique experience, amenities and advantages based on travel style and budget and are organized into four main categories: Luxury Expedition Ships (5-star amenities), Premium Expedition Ships (upgraded amenities), Expedition Ships (primarily smaller but with safety and comfort), and Land-based Programs (more remote or adventurous experiences).
