Q. I'd like to take a trip with my husband to Antarctica next spring. What's the best way to go about booking such a thing?
A. There are plenty of cruises that make the trip. You might want to start by searching the directory of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators. You'll be spending most if not all of your time on a boat, so it's important to find the one that suits you best, be it a cushy traditional cruise or a smaller ship that allows you plenty of time ashore. As with planning any trip, do your homework and search online for travel blogs and passenger reviews of the cruise you're considering. California based Cheeseman's Ecology Safaris, posts their logs from previous trips, with photos, ect. to give potential travelers an idea of what to expect.
