Hebridean Sky: Sailing in comfort, style and safety, this is one of the finest vessels cruising to Antarctica

Days: 6-8 | From: $4,995/per person

In the spring of 2016, Hebridean Sky underwent a ten million dollar refit, transforming her into the safest and most comfortable ship in her class. Formerly known as the Sea Explorer, she has always been known for her effortless elegance, impeccable service, and atmosphere of charm and camaraderie. Hebridean Sky continues that tradition, while adding a host of new amenities as well as state of the art stabilization, fuel efficiency, and upgraded communications systems. All suites and public spaces have been completely redecorated. A top option for your Antarctica experience.
