Abercrombie & Kent’s 2017-18 Antarctic cruise season is now on sale and travellers can save up to US$6,000 per couple on voyages to the White Continent aboard luxurious ‘Le Lyrial’.
A&K has been operating expeditionary cruises to Antarctica for over 25 years and for the 2017 – 2018 Antarctic season offers four expeditions. There are two 11-night journeys to the Antarctic Peninsula, one themed around understanding Climate Change and the other a family New Year adventure. Two longer expeditions each of 16-nights’ duration are also available which explore the Antarctic Peninsula plus South Georgia and the Falkland Islands – one is specially tailored for families and travels over Christmas and the other is a dedicated photographic expedition.
On board Le Lyrial, passenger numbers are capped by A&K at 199. All guest cabins offer balconies and the ship has the spirit of an elegant seaside retreat with contemporary décor inspired by the destinations it visits.
Expert naturalist guides accompany guests on Zodiac excursions and conduct educational and informative briefings on board. There are a minimum of 16 expedition staff on each journey comprising research scientists, conservationists, historians and wildlife photographers – all expert in their field.
