Bernie Carter, Oceania Cruises’ senior vice-president and managing director, EMEA, said: “We’ve offered Antarctica cruising in the past. We tend to do it every few years to spice things up. We’ve signed a non-proliferation treaty to protect the environment, so we don’t go on land, but we go close enough for people to see the wildlife and the ruggedness and beauty of Antarctica.

“Going through Drake Passage to Half Moon Island and Paradise Bay, it’s pretty stunning.”

The line’s 1,250-passenger Marina (pictured) vessel will sail three voyages on the Amazon. The 21-day Amazon Holiday sailing, departs from Miami on December 18, 2022. Ports of call include Recife, Maceió and Salvador, all Brazil.
