Antarctica, the southernmost continent and site of the South Pole, is a virtually uninhabited, ice-covered landmass. Most cruises to the continent visit the Antarctic Peninsula, which stretches toward South America. It’s known for the Lemaire Channel and Paradise Harbor, striking, iceberg-flanked passageways, and Port Lockroy, a former British research station turned museum. The peninsula’s isolated terrain also shelters rich wildlife, including many penguins.
Antarctica is the southern-most continent on our planet and is covered in ice through the year. It hosts the South Pole. No man has a home here and only penguins and other rare creatures live here. Important scientific experiments are conducted by a few countries in this region on board research ships. The only way to explore this region in fact is by specially built ships. Limited number of tourists reach this destination each year on board these ships.
The Hebridean Sky (formerly the Sea Explorer) is considered as the Finest Antarctic Ships in the world with its all-suite accommodations. In March of 2016 the ship underwent a multi-million-dollar refit and emerged from dry dock in June of 2016 re-christened the Hebridean Sky. She has been known for her effortless elegance, impeccable service and atmosphere of charm and camaraderie.
Hebridean Sky will continue that tradition, while adding a host of new amenities as well as state of the art stabilization, fuel efficiency, and upgraded communications systems. All suites and public spaces are completely redecorated. Hebridean Sky is an all-suite ship accommodating up to 110 guests.
