Antarctica in Luxury
Antarctica Experience with a Luxurious Twist
When you travel to Antarctica, you can still enjoy the experience in ultimate comfort on a luxury Antarctica cruise.
Although many expedition ships are quite basic and there are travellers who seek this type of experience, there are also many who prefer to take one of the luxury Antarctica holidays of offer from recognised up-market operators, who combine all the aspects of a bona fide expedition with the comforts and standards of service of a top cruise ship.
Why book your luxury expedition with WILDFOOT?
WILDFOOT can offer such luxury Antarctica holidays from a small number of companies such as Silversea, Ponant, Polar Latitudes and Hapag Lloyd. Silversea operate a specialist expedition ship, the Silver Explorer and emulate the 'six star' standards of service they pride themselves on in their mainstream fleet. This includes butler service in suites, complimentary beverages and silver service. On a Silversea luxury Antarctica cruise, the expedition experience is, however, not compromised, with expert lecturers and guides, zodiac landings and the small ship camaraderie.
Compagnie du Ponant is a French small ship operator, with three purpose
built expedition ships, L'Austral, Le Boreal and Le Soleal. Luxury
Antarctica holidays on these ships provide a private yacht type of
ambiance with gastronomic French cuisine and the highest standards of
service. Again, your luxury Antarctica expedition includes guides and zodiac
landings. Language on board is French and English and Ponant is one of
the best options if you wish to take children with you.
Polar Latitudes is a new American company whose owners have extensive polar experience. Their ship Hebridean Sky has sailed the Antarctic before under its original name Corinthian II. It is superbly appointed in traditional style, with advanced stabiliser systems to ensure a smoother passage. Butler service is available in many of the suites.
