IS THERE ANY WAY TO GO AS A SINGLE TO ANTARCTICA?

I WANT TO HAVE MY OWN CABIN IN ANTARCTICA BECAUSE I SNORE AND I DON’T WANT TO SHARE WITH A COMPLETE STRANGER. BEING ALONE IN A CABIN DOUBLES THE PRICE. IS THERE ANY WAY TO GO AS A SINGLE TO ANTARCTICA? M. K

The cruise vessels that sail in Antarctic waters are mostly small, ice-strengthened ships that travel big distances with specialist naturalists and a skilled crew, and this makes them expensive to operate. The cruise operators set their price per person on the basis of two people occupying a cabin. If they allowed just one person to occupy that cabin without a surcharge, they wouldn’t be in business for long. Sharing is the way to go, unless you want to pay a ridiculous price for the privilege of your own cabin, and it’s not such a drama. You might even get lucky and score a cabin to yourself if it happens that another single woman is not assigned to your cabin. In case that does not happen, you might want to carry earplugs for your cabin buddy. A tired and possibly emotional travelling companion is never a happy proposition.

    Hi there – Great answer Michael. Fact, ships are quite small heading south, and generally single cabins come at great expense. There are a couple of exceptions though! We work with the Ocean Endeavour which has a bunch of cabins for singles with NO SUPPLEMENT – which works out to be quite handy! Other ships such as the Ushuaia and some of our charters we also work with single cabins, just because you are travelling by yourself, doesn’t mean you always have to shell out! I hope that helps!
