If heading to the 7th continent, I HIGHLY recommend a balcony room. You never want to miss an opportunity to see the wildlife. When they announce whales or other wildlife off the side of the ship, there is nothing worse than running upstairs just to miss it. Meanwhile with a balcony, you can step out onto your balcony and look both ways.

What’s Included on a Swan Hellenic Antarctic Expedition
I can be the first to attest that Swan Hellenic cruises are fabulous and have amazing personalized service. I had the opportunity to sail on the SH Diana’s inaugural voyage in May 2023. The food in the dining room was the best I’ve ever had at sea thanks to the partnership with JRE Jeunes restaurateurs.
The SH Diana and SH Vega are very similar and both polar ice class expedition ships from the Helsinki shipyard. Both have extra large stabilizers making the crossing of the Drake passage easy. Plus both ships boast tons of comfort items such as a pool bar and grill, outdoor hot tubs, steam rooms and sauna, plus in room fireplaces. And, nearly everything is included in the cost.
The SH Diana is slightly larger though with 192 guests whereas the Vega only has 152. Both ships boast a staffing capacity of 1 staff member to every 1.25 guests. The best in the industry, only matched by Explora, and Explora does not go to Antarctica. No matter what ship you’re on you will be joined by a dedicated team of expedition leaders and naturalists and will enjoy daily lectures, making this an all around perfect expedition. Plus with less than 200 people you can do two landing in Antarctica every day! Making the most out of your trip.
Swan Hellenic also has all inclusive pricing on every Antarctic cruise. The price you pay includes tons of extra and they do not charge you for extras. Every cruise also comes with the following addons, all included in the fare every time.
