Cruise West is waiving the single supplement fee for its 18-night ultimate Antarctica voyage departing February 2010.
“We found that the majority of guests interested in participating on our Antarctica voyage are singles," said Vice President of Sales and Marketing Richard Genovese. “Cruise West would like to give these guests the opportunity to follow their dream and not be penalized financially for doing so.”
The exclusive 18-night Antarctica voyage departs February 7, 2010, and includes one night in Buenos Aires at the Palacio Duhua – Park Hyatt Hotel, roundtrip air from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia and all excursions. Traveling on board the 114-guest, all-suite Corinthian II, guests will explore such sites as the Falkland, South Georgia and Orkney Islands as well as the Antarctic Peninsula and many islands that dot its shore.
The voyage also features a visit to Palmer Station, one of the three United States research stations located in Antarctica. Famed oceanographer Dr. Don Walsh – named one of the world's great explorers by Life magazine – will lead onboard lectures and discussions concerning the state of Antarctica. In addition, an expert of staff eight naturalists will offer presentations and commentary on the flora, fauna, history and geology of the region.
Prices start at $13,899 per person.
