Having undergone a full refurbishment in 2017, the Island Sky is one of the finest ships to offer exciting luxury cruises to Antarctica. With a small capacity of just 100 guests, you can be sure that the level of service is extremely high and every need will be catered for.

Antarctica is rapidly gaining in popularity for a unique holiday destination, and many large cruise liners are now running trips to the white continent. However, if you are keen to make this once-in-a-lifetime trip truly unforgettable, the benefits of a small ship are unrivalled. The Island Sky is perfect for those seeking a laid back and a more intimate experience, with like-minded individuals. The cabins are luxurious and spacious, meals are a la carte and yet served in a casual manner, and there are no outrageous entertainment venues on board. Instead, what guests will find is a long list of practical facilities such as a library and observation deck, decorated in a contemporary style with plenty of public spaces where you won’t feel too crowded.

NAME: Island Sky

LOCATION: Cruising from Ushuaia and Puerto Madryn in Argentina, to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica.

CAPACITY: The Island Sky can accommodate 100 guests in 59 well-appointed cabins.

FOOD & DRINK: As with all Antarctica cruises, every meal is included, but do not expect drab buffet food on the Island Sky. Both lunch and dinner are served a la carte, and there is an impressive wine list. The accomplished chefs produce superior quality dishes, many of which are inspired by South American flavours and focus on the fresh catch. Each day, afternoon tea is offered to all guests, plus pre-dinner canapes, so there’s no need to worry about going hungry!

OUTSTANDING FEATURE: The sheer quality of the ship and its facilities are by far what make this cruise stand out from the rest.

BEST FOR: Those seeking a personalised service, away from the large-capacity cruise ships with hundreds of guest. The laid back nature of this cruise ship means guests on the Island Sky can enjoy informal dining (ie. no black tie events or allocated seating) and plenty of relaxation time.

MUST DO ACTIVITY: Be sure to tag on a short trip before or after your cruise to make the long flight worthwhile.
