Antarc­tica is not in­cred­i­bly hab­it­able to hu­mans. The freez­ing tem­per­a­tures and bar­ren land­scape pose a se­ri­ous threat to life. How­ever, with some of the most breath­tak­ing views in the world, a trip to the con­ti­nent is a once-in-a-life­time ex­pe­ri­ence. De­pend­ing on the cruise you em­bark on, the op­tion to step ashore the icy won­der­land may be avail­able. This is re­served for smaller ships that can smoothly nav­i­gate the del­i­cate en­vi­ron­ment of the Antarc­tic.

Most stan­dard cruise lin­ers skirt along the edge of the con­ti­nent, pro­vid­ing fam­i­lies and trav­el­ers with a taste of Antarc­tica with­out en­croach­ing too far. These jour­neys can be picked up from all around the coast and fre­quently loop around South Amer­ica, of­ten stop­ping at des­ti­na­tions like Wil­helmina Bay and For­tuna Bay.
