Nature becomes at once intimate and expansive when explored from the comfort of Antarctica Cruise vessel, the G Expedition. Built in 2009 and designed for service in sea ice and equipped with safety features specific to Antarctic travel, the G Expedition lets you clear your mind from your everyday routine as you discover some of the most untouched areas of the earth. Whether you’re an experienced adventurer or a novice explorer, you’ll enjoy your Antarctica cruise on this sturdy ship that accommodates up to 134 passengers where you will have the opportunity to get to know your fellow travellers while enjoying the spacious cabin accommodation and well-appointed amenities for the expedition of a lifetime at an affordable price.
G Expedition Deck Plan
The G Expedition has six decks and only three of them with accommodation. The remaining levels feature public services for you to enjoy such as the breathtaking allure of the 360-degree observation deck atop the ship that ensures that you won’t miss a single vista. The large aft deck offers barbeque facilities, and the forward-facing viewing platform gives you a first-hand view of the awe-inspiring scenery.
Your Experience on the G Expedition
You will start your Antarctica adventure with a pre-night in Ushuaia, from where the following day you will board your cruise for this incredible journey. In addition to comfortable cabins, the G Expedition cruise gives you a chance to learn about the wildlife and science of this area from Polar experts and mingle with your fellow expeditioners in the Discovery Lounge or the Polar Bear Pub. Each day after your excursions you will leave your wet weather gear in the heated mudroom and transition from day of adventure to a relaxing evening by cozying up in the Lonely Planet Library. On days when you’re not heading outdoors, you can work out in the gym or rejuvenate yourself in the sauna. As you’re cruising along, scope out penguins or whales from the observation deck or get a glimpse of massive glaciers from the sun deck.
