Seabourn is offering guests the chance to enjoy the ultimate white Christmas with one of the cruise line's first Antarctica sailings scheduled to visit the "white continent" on Christmas Day.
The ultra-luxury cruise line will begin sailing to Antarctica later this year with Seabourn Quest offering four cruises to Patagonia and Antarctica between November 2013 and February 2014.
Departing Valparaiso in Chile on December 11, 2013, guests will wake up to the splendours of Antarctica on Christmas morning, in the midst of five days of cruising and landings on the Antarctic Continent and islands over the festive period.
The 24-day cruise also includes days exploring the Chilean coast and fjords, Beagle Channel, Glacier Alley, the breathtaking Torres del Paine National Park, Cape Horn, Montevideo and a rare visit to the sub-Antarctic wildlife Eden of South Georgia Island, renowned for its teeming rookeries of king penguins as well as breeding elephant and fur seals. Fares start from $14,999* per person double occupancy.
