Antarctica - Cruise Only

If you want to see Antarctica on a cruise only basis, better hurry.

Cruise lines like Holland America and Princess have offered South American itineraries that sail, for a few days, in Antarctica.

But in April, an amendment was passed by member countries of the 50 year old Antarctic Treaty. It was agreed that ships carrying more than 500 passengers should not be allowed in Antarctica.

So if you hope to see Antarctica from the deck of one of the larger cruising ships, then you better make your reservation soon. I just checked and Holland America has at least one sailing in December of this year and Princess has one in January of next year. Who knows what will be after that.
