The Antarctica/Patagonia itinerary, departing from Bueno Aires, Argentina, includes a cruise aboard Le Boréal or Le Lyrial with penguin and whale watching, hikes, and an optional kayaking experience. Here’s the official description:

Prepare for the adventure of a lifetime as you explore the infinite riches and natural beauty of the Antarctic Peninsula. Nature takes center stage and unique experiences abound as you hike through penguin colonies, search for pods of whales navigating the waters around you, and share a toast with fellow Adventurers as you glide past glaciers and ice floes. Plus, you’ll kick off your journey to the Antarctic Peninsula with explorations of the diverse landscapes and rich culture of Patagonia, also known as the “End of the World.”

Guests can also book an additional four-day Buenos Aires Escape, which allows even more time and experiences in the city, prior to their cruise.


Meanwhile, the Galápagos expedition, sailing on the Galápagos Legend, offers three different routes, each offering adventures around a variety of islands and visits to Charles Darwin Research Station & Fausto Llerena Breeding Center and the volcanic Twin Craters of Santa Cruz Island, as Disney describes:

Unleash your adventurous spirit as you travel on a unique expedition cruise, where you’ll explore the diverse islands and ecosystems of the Galápagos Archipelago.

  1. hahahahahaha, i can imagine this idea being born in a disney conference room where some young intern goes “Hey where can we go on earth where its sparsely populated or not populated at all & rake in hundreds of thousands in profit”. Answer: ANTARTICA. Will folks return later to the cruise ship after sight seeing in negative 30 degrees or are there Disney Igloos with luxurious accomodations?
