Robin West, Senior Manager, Expedition Planning & Operations for Seabourn, said:

“Seabourn has made its reputation for offering guests astonishing experiences in places that are beyond the ordinary, and there are few travel opportunities less-expected or out-of-the-ordinary than a visit to the South Pole. These experiences will be the icing on the cake for guests bound for Antarctica aboard Seabourn Quest over the season ahead.”

Both pre-cruise packages include stays in one of the few private seasonally occupied camps in Antarctica, Union Glacier Camp, located in southern Ellsworth Mountains. The full-service camp is operated by renowned land-based operator Antarctic Logistics & Expeditions (ALE), and offers double-occupancy sleeping tents, gourmet cuisine and spectacular setting for activities from technical climbs to scenic excursions.

Package rates start at US$50,999 per person, double occupancy.
