Island Sky: Another of the very top vessels cruising to Antarctica, sister ship to the Hebridean Sky

Days: 13-21 | From: $8,995/per person

Island Sky and Hebridean Sky are truly sisters. Built in the same Italian Shipyard, both boast spacious, well-appointed suites, stylish common areas, and redundant core technology that allows them to operate smoothly, even under the most challenging of conditions. Both ships are all-suite, all-inclusive small expedition vessels with touches of elegance throughout. In 2017, Island Sky received additional upgrades, including the addition of tinted sliding glass doors to all cabins on Promenade Deck 4.
