Opulent Exploration: Expedition to Antarctica

Did you know that only one hundred people can go ashore in Antarctica at a time? Did you know that luxury cruise lines probably only make one landing a day and carry anywhere from two-to-three hundred passengers? This means that on a luxury cruise you have, at best, a 50% chance of going ashore on a given day. I flew the twenty-four-plus hours to get to Ushuaia, Argentina, to meet Aurora Expedition’s newest vessel, the Sylvia Earle, and then braved the Drake Passage for a few cold days this past December. I would have lost my mind if, after all that, I had been restricted from going ashore. An Opulent Explorer travel advisor can keep you from being left behind.
