Budget Antarctica Cruises

Want to travel to Antarctica on a budget? It is not exactly the world's cheapest destination, but there are some surprisingly affordable alternatives. In 2016 we have to consider any cruise to Antarctica that is under US$8000 per person as being a budget cruise. A few expeditions fall under US$6000. Occasionally we also have some last-minute specials or Early Booking Discounts that take an otherwise more expensive cruise under this price level.

For the most attractive prices, generally look out for Antarctic Peninsula cruises sailing in November or March. It may not be peak-season, but this is still a wonderful time to travel to Antarctica! In November the landscape is very pretty and snow-covered and in March watch out for extra special encounters with whales!
