Itineraries marked as Weddell Sea Quest share a similar itinerary to the Classic Antarctica itinerary, but include time in the Weddell Sea and an extra day on board.

Itineraries marked as Polar Circle Quest are also similar to the Classic Antarctica itinerary, but pass through the Antarctic Circle and include two extra days on board.

Cruises start and end in Ushuaia (Argentina).
