Although we are operating at the bottom of the world, we provide an exceptional variety of healthy, tasty meals, prepared by our team of professional Canadian and European chefs. Breakfasts, typically, are buffet style. Lunches offer a great choice of light meals - as well as more substantial options for those who are hungry - and each evening there is a hearty three-course meal offering both variety and choice. There’s also an excellent wine list featuring a range of Argentine and international wines. You can get a cup of tea or coffee at any time of the day or night and we always offer afternoon tea with cakes and biscuits. Guests with dietary restrictions or special meal requirements are also well catered for on our voyages. 14

We offer to match you up with a fellow expeditioner of the same gender in the same cabin type. It’s a system that works well and saves you having to pay a single supplement. If we can’t match you up with someone, you’ll have sole use of the cabin at no extra cost. We won’t force you to pay extra. Some guests however prefer to have exclusive use of a cabin. In this case, a single supplement does apply, which is 1.5 times the cabin price. Ask us for details.
