If an arctic chill is more appealing than tropical heat, why not visit the White Continent this year? It's too cold to travel to Antarctica now, but come next winter expedition cruises will again start carrying passengers to this last great frontier. If you book your white adventure now, you'll save a bundle! Case in point: Adventure Smith Explorations' Classic Antarctica sailing next December saves you up to $2,550 per person. This 12-day odyssey begins and ends in Argentina's Ushuaia, the world's southernmost town. From here you sail to the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands, with wildlife viewing and visits to scientific bases. The $2,550 savings refer to single cabins on the December 10 trip. For double cabins, you'll save $1,900 on superior units, regularly priced at $7,800. The lowest rates are for triple cabins, at $4,800. All quoted costs include three meals daily. But don't wait to book your trip to the land of glaciers, icebergs, and penguins; these cruises will sell out fast.
