Few COVID Restrictions for Antarctica Cruises in 2024

Argentina and Chile have lifted their COVID-related entry requirements, making an Antarctica cruise in 2024 even easier. However, select operators still have their own requirements for joining their Antarctica cruises in 2024. Stay up to date on the latest requirements listed here: Antarctica Travel Restrictions: What You Need to Know Now.

Antarctica 2024 – New Itineraries

If you are looking at an Antarctica cruise 2024, now is the time to talk to our experts. Noteworthy for the the 2024 season is that our partner Antarctica cruise lines have put out some new itineraries.

Most Antarctica cruises require an added fee for special activity programs, such as kayaking and camping (learn more in our primers on Things to Do in Antarctica and Antarctica cost). The Antarctic Peninsula Basecamp Cruise has long been popular with travelers due to its all-activities-included nature. Starting in Antarctica 2024, the new Antarctica All-Access itinerary will do the same, offering kayaking, camping and snowshoeing at no extra cost.

Starting in November for the 2024-2025 season is National Geographic Antarctica Direct, a new option for travelers seeking to fly over the Drake Passage to Antarctica. Choose to skip the two-day sailing to instead fly round-trip on an 8-day itinerary, or fly one-way on a 10-day route. While not a new concept (we’ve been offering Antarctica air cruises for 20 years), it’s welcome addition for fans of the National Geographic fleet.

Booking Antarctica 2025 & Beyond

If your Antarctica 2025 travel is at the beginning of the year, it falls under the 2024-2025 Antarctica season, running approximately November 2024 through March 2025. Rates have been released for early 2025 Antarctica cruises mid 2023, so the time is now to book if you are seeking to travel in the early months of 2025.

Rates and dates were released for much of the 2025-2026 Antarctica season in February 2024, so early-booking Antarctica cruise deals can be found for these departures. Just another reason to act now to book your Antarctica 2025 travel!
