    Ushuaia, Argentina
    • Ushuaia, Argentina
    Today we fly south to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, where we meet our ship. Ushuaia's spectacular setting, between the jagged peaks of the Cordillera Darwin and the protected waters of the Beagle Channel, makes it an appropriately wild place to begin our journey to the White Continent and a great destination in its own right. While we're there, we visit Tierra del Fuego National Park, where we can view a beautiful forest of southern beech, very much like those that covered Antarctica millions of years ago. Lunch will be served onboard a private catamaran while cruising the Beagle Channel, where we'll be on the lookout for huge South American sea lions and birds like imperial cormorants. Residents of Ushuaia often call their small city 'El Fin del Mundo', The End of the World, but for us, it's just the beginning. (B,L,D) ...

    Drake Passage, Antarctica
    • Drake Passage, Antarctica
    This 500-mile-wide strait between South America and the Antarctic Peninsula is one of the most famous bodies of water in the world. Sometimes ferocious, sometimes flat calm, the Drake is always a fascinating place in its own right. This part of the journey is our best opportunity to see gorgeous seabirds like the wandering albatross, and we might be lucky enough to encounter killer whales or rare species of dolphins. This is also a day to get to know our ship and prepare for the adventures ahead. Visit the Bridge (a great place to spot wildlife), have a relaxing massage, attend a talk about the biology of the penguins you'll soon be seeing, or settle into a comfy chair in the observation lounge, look out over the waves, and reflect on the incredible history of this fabled passage. If it does get a little rough, just take a couple of nice naps; we'll be in Antarctica before you know it. (B,L,D) ...

    Cruising Antarctica, Antarctica
    • Cruising Antarctica, Antarctica
    Ice! It's probably the very first thing most people think about when the topic of Antarctica comes up, and once you're here it never disappoints. From icebergs the size of islands to the fragile, nearly invisible layers glistening on the surface where the sea has just begun to freeze, from near-vertical glaciers pouring down the slopes of every mountain to the endless landscapes of sea ice, frozen ocean stretching to the horizon in every direction, ice defines the Antarctic. You'll get to know it up close and personal, hiking, kayaking, and cruising in the Zodiacs through this frozen world. (B,L,D) ...

    Cruising Antarctica, Antarctica
    • Cruising Antarctica, Antarctica
    Our sturdy Zodiac landing craft are really the heart and soul of our explorations in the Antarctic. These tough, stable little motorized boats maneuver easily through ice-choked waters, getting us ashore safely in even the most remote and challenging locations. And simply cruising in the Zodiacs is just as much fun. What's around the next corner? A leopard seal relaxing on an ice floe or a chance to photograph an exquisite arched iceberg that no one has ever seen before? We never know until we get there, but it's always a thrill. (B,L,D) ...

    Cruising Antarctica, Antarctica
    • Cruising Antarctica, Antarctica
    Penguins, without any doubt, are the most popular residents of Antarctica, and we have many chances to get to know them well. Their colonies are almost always close to the beach, so it's very easy to get great photos. In the short Antarctic summer, these amazing birds are always busy with the many tasks of breeding and raising their chicks, so every month brings something new. In November the adults are squabbling over the pebbles they use to build their nests. By late December, the first chicks are tucked in under their parents, peeping out at the world. And in February, the chicks have left their nests and are very active, learning to swim and getting ready to fend for themselves. (B,L,D) ...

    Cruising Antarctica, Antarctica
    • Cruising Antarctica, Antarctica
    Everywhere we go in the Antarctic we're surrounded by opportunities to capture uniquely beautiful images with our cameras. Whether we are cruising past spectacular glaciers in the ship, getting close to seals in the Zodiacs, or hiking around the penguin colonies, we are always in the company of an expert National Geographic photographer and a Lindblad photo instructor who share what they see and help us to perfect both the art and the technique of our own photography. The impossibly gorgeous blue in the heart of an iceberg, a penguin tenderly feeding its tiny chick, or a glorious sunset over frozen ocean, shots like these surround us every day. Learning to capture these perfect moments is both a wonderful challenge and a huge thrill. (B,L,D) ...

    Cruising Antarctica, Antarctica
    • Cruising Antarctica, Antarctica
    Really exploring Antarctica also means simply relaxing and watching while the ship cruises through some of the most spectacular scenery on Earth. Grab a cup of cocoa and a comfortable seat in the Observation Lounge or visit the officers on the Bridge, or just kick back in your cabin and watch for seals on ice or whales blowing in the distance. We make transits of world-famous passages like the Lemaire Channel and Antarctic Sound and go ashore on the continent itself, but we also visit equally amazing islands and places that you've never heard of, yet!

Take some time to go through your photos. Send a message home to friends and family saying: "Don't want this to end!" And celebrate your voyage at a farewell dinner onboard. (B,L,D Daily) ...
