Cruising to Antarctica

Cruising to Antarctica on the boomer adventure of a lifetime

Updated 01.02.2020:  A cruise to Antarctica had been at the top of our travel bucket list for a long time. Alan and I chose an Antarctica cruise with Seabourn. We cruised on the 450-passenger Seabourn Quest through South American fjords to the tip of the continent and then across the Drake Passage.

The true adventure began when Quest reached Antarctica to explore for seven days before continuing to South Georgia. This fabulous journey ended in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was an active trip that we’ll never forget!
