In response to strong demand for its Antarctica Bridge voyages, which allow passengers to bypass cruising the notoriously finicky Drake Passage, Silversea Cruises has added three more of these departures for the 2023/24 season.
“In response to exceptional demand, we have added three new fly-cruise voyages aboard Silver Cloud for 2024, enhancing our industry-leading Antarctica offering and strengthening our destination leadership,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea president and CEO. “Our pioneering Antarctica Bridge option is tremendously popular with time-conscious travelers who prefer to experience the White Continent without crossing the Drake Passage.”
With Antarctic Bridge sailings, passengers fly into Chile’s Eduardo Frei Montalva air base on King George Island before boarding Silver Cloud where they spend as much time exploring the region as on the line’s conventional itineraries. Destinations visited include the Antarctic Sound, the Antarctic Peninsula, and the South Shetland Islands.
The three new voyages comprise two five-day cruises, departing February 2 and 7, 2024, and one six-day sailing, departing February 12, 2024.
