Day 3-4: Drake Passage (B, L, D)Get ready to cross the Drake Passage, infamous for its rough seas. Named after the 16th-century explorer Sir Francis Drake who accidentally discovered it, this 500-mile (800-km) wide body of water lies between the southern tip of South America and Antarctica.
The passage is abundant with bird and sea life, and you’ll spot albatross, penguins, whales and dolphins from the decks of the ship.

Day 5-7: Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands (B, L, D)Awaken to your first sighting of the amazing, icy mass that is Antarctica. As your cruise ship approaches, get out your camera for great photo opportunities from the deck. Look for breaching whales and admire the breathtaking display of icebergs in the Southern Ocean.
Then, prepare to set foot on the vast, white continent itself, stopping at a variety of landing sites, such as Neko Harbour, Orne Harbor and Paradise Bay. You’ll be mesmerized by the allure of Antarctica’s beauty, where an abundance of wildlife remains undisturbed by human contact.
Spend the next few days exploring the white sheets of this frozen continent and learning about its inhabitants from onboard experts. Depending on the weather, you’ll speed from the cruise ship to the landmass in a Zodiac each day, marveling at the brilliant blue colors as your boots crunch over the ice beneath your feet.
