zAntarctica on the Corinthian

13 days

13 Day Cruise and Tour

A note from John Frick, your expedition leader

Dear Travelers,
     2014-2015 will be my fourteenth season in Antarctica. And even after more than 69 expeditions to the Antarctic Peninsula and beyond, I eagerly anticipate each new voyage south. Please consider this brief note a personal invitation to join me on what is truly an amazing journey to an amazing place.
     Some of you reading this will have traveled with me to other regions—to Africa, Alaska, South America, the Canadian Arctic, Greenland, the Baltic, the Mediterranean, India, the South Pacific. It will be wonderful to see you again and to catch up on what has happened since we parted. For others, this will be your first time traveling with me, and I look forward to getting to know you.
     Old friends or new, I can promise that this voyage to Antarctica will be unlike anything else you have ever done—exhilarating and stimulating beyond your greatest expectations. Please come join me this winter on an expedition to the White Continent.
— John Frick, Expedition Leader
