Adventure Cruising; Antarctica! Like No Adventure on Earth

Apr 21, 2009

Cruising isn’t always about sunning the afternoon away or taking first prize in the belly-flop contest. There’s another side of cruising that’s less about indulgences and more about self-fulfillment. This is the crux of “Adventure Cruising”, where the ship isn’t as much the destination as the destination is the destination. This is where you cruise to not necessarily “do”, but to “be”.

When most think of adventure cruising, Antarctica is coming to mind more and more. While only about 100,000 tourists have experienced Antarctica, the need to explore our planet has no boundries for some. Bragging rights is only the beginning of reasons to take on the tundra; the sights and sounds of the bottom of the world come with experiences that few can imagine and even fewer will explore (not many can say they’ve frolicked with Chinstrap Penguins).

Hurtigruten (pronounced: Hurt eh grew ton) is a leading operator of specialized Antarctica cruising, pushing the limits of adventure. The line’s flagship, MS Fram, was custom-designed to cruise the frozen waters of Antractica. Her interior will make you feel like you stepped into a Nordic wonderland (think generous use of wool, leather and oak…very cozy). Even though the vessel is an expedition-designed ship, accommodations are stylish and comfortable. There’s even a sauna and outdoor heated jacuzzis.

Sound amazing? Like the photo? Well….you can be a part of it. Come February 2010 as part of Amazing Journeys’ 10th Anniversary Seven-Continent Tour, we’ll be offering the most Amazing Journey ever. Check out our cruise ship, the MS Flam at We’ll be taking just 35 people on this excursion and what a journey it will be.
As the space is so limited we are currently building an interest list and will provide a private preview of our tour to those on the list before making it available to the public. If you’d like to be on the interest list, please provide your email address as a comment to this post.

Antarctica! Wow….
