Antarctica on a budget

The most affordable Antarctica expedition cruises!

Antarctica is not exactly the world's cheapest destination, but there are some surprisingly affordable alternatives. Nowadays, any cruise to Antarctica that costs less than US$8000 could be regarded as being a budget cruise. A very few expeditions come under US$6000 but usually only with the cheapest Quad or Triple cabin categories (which usually sell out a long way in advance!). Occasionally we can offer last-minute specials or Early Booking Discounts that bring an otherwise more expensive cruise to this price level.

For the most attractive prices, look out for Antarctic Peninsula cruises sailing in the shoulder-season period of 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 we can enjoy extra special encounters with whales!
