Princess Cruises is introducing four itineraries exploring Antarctica in the 2024-25 season.
In 2024-25, the Sapphire Princess will again sail across Antarctica, allowing travelers to enjoy the sight of the Falkland Islands’ penguins and the landscapes of Elephant Island, the company said in a press reelase.
“No other large ship cruise line sails Antarctica like Princess,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises. “Our master navigators, unique local relationships and outstanding amenities make accessing these exotic destinations not only immersive but amazingly comfortable.”
The 2024-25 season includes 15 total departures on 11 itineraries. New for the season is a 17-day Antarctica voyage sailing roundtrip from Buenos Aires, Argentina, with an overnight in the city. Departures aboard the Sapphire Princess are December 1, 18, 2024 and January 4, 20, 2025.
In addition, guests looking for a longer exploration can book a 51-day South America Grand Adventure sailing on the Majestic Princess between Los Angeles and Ft. Lauderdale. The itinerary features overnight stays in Lima, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro.
Other featured itineraries include a 14 or 15-day Cape Horn and Strait of Magellan voyage aboard the Majestic Princess, sailing on December 19, 2024. The Sapphire Princess will sail reverse itineraries on February 7 and 21, 2024 and March 7, 2025.
