I bring you another Scott & Thomas Travel exclusive, a 5 star Seabourn Antarctica expedition for just $9,999 per person. This is a $2,000 savings compared to the standard price that Seabourn is selling the same Veranda rooms for on the same sailings. This deal is extremely limited, but open only to my readers. If you have been considering an Antarctica Expedition which includes hiking and walking on the 7th continent, whale watching, penguin spotting and more; now is your opportunity to see it all in 5 star luxury at a fraction of the standard price. Prices this low for luxury expeditions are rare for Antarctica. Every other sailing with Seabourn starts at $10,999 and that’s still cheap considering Viking charges over $13,000 per person on an even larger ship and other luxury operators such as Ponant and SilverSeas charge closer to $13,000-$20,000! Even my exclusive National Geographic deal for 30% off Antarctica in Nov and Dec starts at $12,000 per person. Making this the best deal in the luxury market.
I did this same trip early this year on the Seabourn Venture it exceeded my expectations in every possible way! Honestly, life changing. I can only hope to go back to see the pure beauty of Antarctica in the near future.

$9,999 Balcony Suites
What is most compelling about Seabourn is that the cruise ships extremely luxurious, yet the people and staff and not uppity. The Seabourn Venture maiden voyage was in Summer of 2022 and her sister ship, the Pursuit, will launch in the Fall of 2023, just in time for these more trips to Antarctica. The new Polar Class 5 ship was built for luxury polar expeditions –unlike the older ships that have been refurbished utilized by most of the competition. Silverseas expeditions watch out, Seabourn offers a ship built specifically for Antarctica. Also, EVERY room on Seabourn is a Verandah Suite.
For $9,999 per person, you get a Verandah V1 suite on the Seabourn Venture. These suites are 355 sq. ft. (33 sq. m.) and include a 75 sq. ft. (7 sq. m.) private balcony.
Suites on Seabourn Venture and Pursuit feature a comfortable living area which includes a table for two and a couch. Each suite has a private veranda; queen-size bed or two twin beds; an extra-large walk-in closet for expedition gear; personal safe; interactive flat-screen TV with music and movies; fully stocked bar and refrigerator. Seabourn cuts no corners on their rooms offer more than 150 sq feet more personal space than most ships. Even the bathrooms are over the top. A full five piece bathroom feature large soaking tubs, walk in shower, and a large double sink. These rooms are very large compared to most ships rooms and very comfortable for two people traveling together.
Upgrade to a Panorama Suite
On my trip I decided, heck I am going to Antarctica lets have a more comfortable ride and MORE windows. With that in mind, I opted to upgrade to a beautiful larger Panorama suite. This was the best money I ever spent! The rooms are slightly larger with a total room space o f417 sq. ft. (39 sq. m.) and includes veranda of 85 sq. ft. (8 sq. m.). This room has upgraded amenities such as heated floors, a Nespresso machine, a larger bathroom with a separate room for the toilet and a beautiful bath tub that looks out over the water. In addition the shower is larger than the standard room. Making room for 2 or people of size.
These suites are also on sale for just $15,499 on the Nov 17 – Nov 28, 2023 sailing. Or as low at $14,999 on the Dec 9 departure too. These prices will not last. Contact me today to secure your spot.
Seabourn Expedition – All Inclusive Pricing
On Seabourn, nearly everything is included in the cost of the Sailing. All you have to do is purchase your flights to Buenos Aires. Once there, you’re vacation is basically paid for. Transportation from the airport is even included. Plus on the ship, all your food, premium alcohol and daily excursions are included. Even Wifi, all dining options and all gratuities are built into the cost. There’s really no hidden fees with Seabourn.
Each cruise to Antarctica includes the following amenities:
- Pre-cruise Hotel
- Roundtrip Charter flight between Buenos Aires and Ushuaia
- Inclusive Zodiac tours and landings (Zodiac is the preeminent inflatable boat maker)
- Digital photography workshops
- Helly Hanson Parka and day pack
- Opportunities for frequent wildlife sightings from the ship and on shore
- Onboard expedition team providing narration and insight to all aspects of the experience
- Special guest speakers on board
Unlike other cruise lines, I’m looking at you Hurtriguten, Seabourn includes nearly everything in the cost. On Seabourn there are only a few extra costs. For example, there are only two excursions which are not complimentary. You can include an Antarctica submarine excursion exploring the depths of the Weddell Sea in an all-electric sub. Or consider Kayaking in Antarctica on a guided Antarctica Kayak adventure. Otherwise, enjoy the multiple daily complimentary Antarctic excursions.
Seabourn Expedition Ship
The Seabourn Venture & Pursuit accommodate only 264 passengers. These ships rarely travel at capacity, meaning you can expect to sail with around 200 people. Each room has an exterior balcony and the ship also has several dining rooms, bars, hot tubs, as well as a large heated pool and a sauna. Take a look at the ship, it is stunning! By far the most beautiful small ship I’ve ever been on.
The Constellation Lounge will be the highest indoor viewing point on each ship. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls will wrap around the space, offering guests stunning 270-degree, outward-facing views as far as their eyes can see, heightening their expeditionary spirit while bringing them closer to wildlife and wonders at sea and in port.
Looking for something more? Spoil yourself with a treatment at the Spa. The gym and Sauna are complimentary for all guests
When it’s dinner time head to the main restaurant. Just one of several venue options open for dinner.
After Dinner, grab a cocktail at the club or catch a educational talk in the discovery center.
Want more options? Grab any meal in the Colonnade. The more casual, indoor/outdoor alternative featuring an open kitchen, lavish buffets or table service for breakfasts and lunch. At dinner time the Colonnade serves regionally themed, bistro-style dinners with table service nightly.
At any time, head down to the Expedition lounge. Here guests are invited to relax or linger with a complimentary cocktail or glass of fine wine from the bar as they share photos and stories from the day with their fellow travelers and the onboard staff. The Expedition Lounge is central to the Seabourn expedition operation where guests convene before and after expeditions each day.

I absolutely love sailing Seabourn. I’ve written about Seabourn’s Antarctica deals several times. Providing additional information about the Zodiac tours and naturists onboard. Seabourn’s expeditions is taking on Lindblad, Ponant, and other major expedition operators while upping the luxury game. Seabourn Ventures will not be outdone and now is your chance to book your expedition at some of the lowest prices seen yet. Best yet, these sailings do not require full payment until Aug 2023. Other deals we’ve seen at this price point required you to pay in full a full year in advance. Yet now, Seabourn is bringing you the best prices to Antarctica without that hurdle.
November and December is an amazing time to visit Antarctica. Whale migrations begin and Seal Pups are abundant. Penguins are everywhere, days are long, and the weather is warm. Do not miss this opportunity. Book your $9999 expedition today!
