Journey into the great white wonder of Antarctica with this once-in-a-lifetime 16-day ocean cruise, which takes you from Buenos Aires to the untouched wilderness of the Antarctic Peninsula. Long shrouded in legend and myth, the frozen enigma that is Antarctica is now yours to explore and discover on board Scenic Eclipse — helping you go beyond the horizon where few have travelled before. Travelling south from Ushuaia, you’ll cross Drake Passage to the South Shetland Islands, meeting local wildlife both on and off the ship as you venture inland via zodiac. Then it’s on to the Antarctic Peninsula, where the Scenic Discovery Team will introduce you to this spectacular continent and all its natural wonders — from the splendour of Neko Harbour to the native colony of friendly and curious Gentoo penguins.
