I have written in the past why I think the Cheesmans’ trips to Antarctica are among, if not the best, especially for photographers. Well there is good news and bad news. First the bad. For a variety of reasons, this upcoming February / March is going to be the last trip Cheesmans’ is offering to Antarctica. It is unfortunate, but the smaller boats that offer the best experience are becoming prohibitively expensive. I go into far more detail if you follow the link above, but most locations in Antarctica allow only 100 people on shore at any give time, so if you are on a vessel with 200 folks, you will now spend 50% less time on shore. You really want to be on a 100 passenger ship if you can.
So what is the good news? Cheesmans’ is offering a 10% discount on this final trip to the peninsula! I can’t remember a time where they have offered a discount. If you have any questions at all about Antarctica, or the company, feel free to contact me as I’ll be in the home office for the next month or so (rare! ). I should mention, my Arizona obligations are preventing me from joining the staff on this trip, but many of my favorite staff are working on this trip so you will be in good hands.
