Discover the secrets of the White Continent from aboard the exclusively chartered, deluxe M.S.

Spend two nights in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires before following such adventuresome explorers as Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton into the lingering light of the austral summer, when long sunrises paint the icescape in soft shades of pink and gold, and normal human scales and reference points disappear amid the fantastically shaped icebergs, glimmering turquoise glaciers, flourishing penguin rookeries and breaching whales. Complement your expedition with the special Post-Cruise Option to breathtaking Iguazú Falls.
