Hebridean Sky with Antarctica21

For ‘Highlights of Antarctica’, Antarctica21 have chartered our very own MS Hebridean Sky and are making some suites available for our passengers. The all-suite MS Hebridean Sky can usually accommodate up to 118 passengers, however for their fly-cruise expeditions in Antarctica, Antarctica21 limit the number of guests on board to just 75 and configure the vessel differently to our usual deck plan. The vessel is one of the finest small ships in the world and benefits from unusually large suites, luxuriously appointed public areas and spacious outside decks.

The atmosphere on board is warm and convivial and more akin to a private yacht or country hotel in which you can learn more about the wonders of Antarctica in the company of like-minded people. There is a high ratio of crew to passengers and the friendly crew are mainly Filipino and Eastern European. After a day exploring ashore you will return to the comfort and peace of a well-run and exceedingly comfortable ship. The excellent and informative port briefings and lectures from the expedition staff, the convivial onboard atmosphere and of course good food, all contribute to make any voyage aboard this wonderful vessel a memorable and joyful experience. 

Please note that these details pertaining to the MS Hebridean Sky are only applicable for the ‘Highlights of Antarctica’ expedition.
