The G Expedition offers once-in-a-lifetime small ship cruises to Antarctica. The 105m Expedition vessel was completely refurbished in 2009 and has been built with safety, stability, and comfort in mind. She holds up to 134 guests, but Expedition was built to be your new home-from-home during your unique Antarctica adventure. There are 6 categories of cabins onboard to suit every budget, ranging from shared quad cabins to suites. All cabins feature private en-suite bathrooms, ocean views, and daily cabins service.

The extensive social areas include the Expedition Lounge with padded sofas and magnificent views, the Lonely Planet Library with extensive reading material, the Polar Bear Pub - a cozy place to unwind with a wide selection of beverages and also a gym & sauna so you can work up a sweat. Three freshly prepared meals a day are served in the large Albatross Dining Room, along with an afternoon tea service and complimentary snacks.

A small ship expedition cruise to Antarctica is a trip of a lifetime and something not many are fortunate to experience. Antarctica is the world's least-visited continent, where you can witness immense icebergs and breathtaking glaciers, sail through the Drake Passage, and come face-to-face with amazing polar wildlife, something many people rarely get to do in the wild. The team of the MS Expedition will only enhance the experience and comprise experts in geology, marine biology, and polar history. Every tour also has a resident photography expert to help you capture these amazing moments.

Great adventure

For me it was the sunset in Leith Cove as well as seing animals. It was my first time I've seen whales. Presentations were also great way to spend time wisely.

Incredible experience. Cleaning and kitchen staff were phenomenal. Expedition staff were unfriendly, miserable and truly awful.

The first hike up to the glacier, seeing so many orcas and humpbacks and hundreds and hundreds of penguins. Just a shame the expedition team are so terrible. Would not book with G expedition again.

Never forgettable journey with G team

Too much penguins! Iceberg! Whales, seals and birds. Of course the landscape of snowy mountains and atmosphere are gorgeous. Besides, they have an option for zodiac exploration if weather permits and the guide explained with a lot of information each time.

Arrangements, meals, activities and all services. I have no negative experience at all.

Incredible trip to the world’s most remote place!

A very calm Drake and southern waters, navigated by competent crew allowed for additional landings and exploration of new sites - which may not have been possible had the expedition team not been so enthusiastic about sharing all that Antarctica has to offer. A once in a lifetime experience- would recommend to all family and friends!
