The Antarctic Dream


Once in a Lifetime Expeditions to the Great White Continent

(Missoula, MT) The Antarctic Dream, a 78 person capacity Dutch vessel renowned for its longtime service in the Chilean Navy, has been refurbished and transformed into a contemporary expedition cruise ship built to traverse the world's wildest waterways. The Antarctic Dream offers ideal expeditions to the Great White Continent, taking in the most exciting sights of the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. For more information, visit, or call 1-877-AD TRIPS.

What distinguishes The Antarctic Dream's 11 day/10 night expedition from most Antarctic cruises is the extraordinary, hands-on access to wildlife, glaciers and massive icebergs provided by the smaller, 78 person capacity vessel. Passengers of The Antarctic Dream often experience up-close encounters with fur seals, humpback whales, leopard seals and orcas, and are able to explore the blue, icy land during 2-3 hour daily zodiac raft excursions. The Antarctic Dream receives passengers from all across the globe with an average of 20+ nationalities on board every trip.

Information-packed lectures are offered to passengers by the Expedition Leader. Additional presentations and workshops are offered by geologists, naturalists, and special guests, which include celebrated photographers, wildlife experts and more.

Departing from and finishing in the port of Ushuaia, Argentina, The Antarctic Dream features a large dining room, library, auditorium, gym, sauna, laundry, satellite email/phone and boutique. Cabins have private baths, queen or twin beds, closed circuit TV, and inter-cabin phone service.

"My experience was nothing but pure travel comfort," said Dee Hunt, Antarctic Dream '06. "Tour leaders and lecturers were totally involved with all of us-sharing time, meals, expertise, and friendship at every opportunity."

The Antarctic Dream offers an ideal expedition to the Great White Continent, taking in the most exciting sights of the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula.  The 2008/2009 season is quickly approaching with the first expedition departing November 19th and trips available until mid-March. The 11day/10 night trips range in price from $6,450 for cabins to $16,050 for suites. For more information, visit, or call 1-877- AD TRIPS.
