I am planning on visiting Antarctica in Dec 2018/Jan 2019. The OAT trip interests me, but the ship, M/V Corinthian, is not a dedicated polar ship. It is ice strengthened; it cruises both Antarctica and the Mediterranean.
Does anyone have advice on cruising Antarctica on such a ship? Has anyone taken the OAT trip to Antarctica, and if so, how was it?
