The White Continent is a cruise aboard the 148-guest National Geographic Explorer. Luxury in Antarctica must be balanced with access; among ships with ice-strengthened hulls that offer daily shore excursions in Antarctica, the National Geographic Explorer is the finest. A partnership with National Geographic means traveling with the most experienced ice team available, including authors, professors, researchers and photographers.
Only a handful of cabins aboard the National Geographic Explorer can be considered luxurious and they sell out early, sometimes up to a year in advance. Focus on Categories 5, 6, and 7 as these cabins offer balconies or verandas and all are located on the Upper Deck.
