With the start of the 2023-24 Antarctic cruise season just over three months away, Viva reports that some popular Antarctic operators are close to sold out on many departures.
Viva has seen massive interest in Antarctica recently, with the continent making up more than 60% of the company’s enquiries in recent months.
Aurora Expeditions has last chance deals for its upcoming Antarctica 2022-23 season, commencing in three months’ time with the South Georgia & Antarctic Odyssey on 21 October.
Up to 20% off is being offered off all Antarctica voyages for the 2022-23 season, for bookings before 31 August 2022.
PONANT is launching sales of a new offer for 2023-2024 to discover the southern continent.
The selection includes 32 expedition sailings and 12 different itineraries aboard small luxury expedition ships Le Boreal, L’Austral and Le Lyrial, and Le Commandant Charcot, the world’s first hybrid electric LNG powered polar exploration ship.
PONANT has released its documentary ‘Beyond the Polar Circle’ with newly appointed brand ambassador Andrew Daddo showcasing his experience sailing on board PONANT’s Le Boréal to Antarctica.
Available via PONANT’s website, the 45-minute feature takes viewers on a journey south, embarking on a 16-day polar expedition voyage between South America and the Antarctic Peninsula.
Viva Expeditions is promoting Antarctica day flights from Australia on a Qantas Dreamliner (Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane).
Managing director, Rachel Williams says this is a great way to experience and appreciate the sheer size of Antarctica in a day. ‘Weather permitting we’ll hope to reduce the flying altitude to approximately 20,000 feet to give improved viewing of some areas. The South Pole flight will spend significantly longer over Antarctica, mostly at cruising altitude as we aim to reach the South Pole.
