Our full polar programme will be published later in the year when we launch our new range of holidays for 2012 but to whet the appetite, the following polar cruises are available for booking now.
This exciting 8-day cruise to the Arctic waters of the Svalbard archipelago is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see polar bears, whales and other arctic wildlife in their natural habitat while cruising along some of the most remote coastlines in the world. Always on the lookout for wildlife we will explore Svalbard not only by ship but also up close from small Zodiac boats and on foot.
From Patagonia to the Antarctic through the Drake Passage. With the introduction next year of this amazing 11-day cruise, KE now offers adventure holidays to every continent on earth. As you would expect from KE this is no ordinary polar cruise and we are very focused on observing wildlife with plenty of opportunity during the holiday to land on the Antarctic peninsula and even the option to camp overnight.
Our ‘In Depth’ Cruise is similar to our ‘Antarctica Classic’ except you will have an additional two days to explore the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetlands Islands. A world of immense scale and visual splendour, this is the last true wilderness on earth. With plenty of time to explore the Peninsula on foot and by Zodiac as well as the option to camp out overnight you can completely immerse yourself within this enchanted world.
Our home for both these cruises is the MS Expedition, a recently refitted and refurbished vessel, uniquely equipped to meet the demands of cruising in Polar Regions. With a maximum capacity of 126 passengers, the ship is large enough to provide stability, speed, spacious cabins and ample public space, yet she is small enough to manoeuvre in remote areas and get us close to the wildlife action.
All cruises are accompanied by a team of experts in marine and avian biology, history and geology who will enhance your polar experience through a programme of lectures and shore expeditions. A fleet of Zodiacs are used for landings and nature cruises, and shore parties embark/disembark from a large ‘Mud Room' ensuring the living and relaxing areas on the upper decks remain comfortable and clean.
To qualify for the 15% discount, you need to book any 2012 Realm of the Polar Bear Arctic Cruise by September 30th 2011 OR any 2011 Nov or Dec Antarctica In Depth Cruise. The discount applies to bookings using twin or double berth cabins only. Discounts only apply to the Land Only price.
