Ross Sea & East Antarctica
Antarctica cruises and expeditions to the remote 'other side' of Antarctica!
Browse the range of Antarctic cruises here at Expeditions Online that travel to East Antarctica or the Ross Sea. Travelling to this part of the Antarctic is both longer and more expensive than our Antarctic Peninsula cruises due to the greater distance and ice conditions. East Antarctica or the Ross Sea is the southern-most coastline in the world and the most fascinating area from a historical perspective. Historic huts from heroic explorers such as Shackleton and Scott are some of the greatest highlights and you can visit McMurdo Station. Huge mountains dominate the coastline and large breeding colonies of Adelie and emperor penguins make for incredible wildlife viewing opportunities. This amazing part of Antarctica is a long way south of New Zealand or Tasmania, which many of the cruises visit. You will also have the chance to visit the sub-Antarctic island paradises of Macquarie, Campbell and the Auckland Islands. If you would like to compare these cruises to the opposite side of Antarctica, check out our Falklands, South Georgia, and Antarctica cruises.
