Who should go
and not go

Party-ship seeker

Partying is not central to an Antarctica cruise. Educational programs on wildlife, geology and ecology are. If learning about those topics and participating in Zodiac excursions is not someone's cup of tea, he might find an Antarctica cruise boring.


Some ships have 6-to-12 year old minimum age limits. One reason is Antarctica cruises are lengthy and would seem tedious to most children (it's not like a Caribbean cruise with loads of children activities and fun ports of call). However, if your child is adventurous and intellectually curious about Antarctica, it might work. Recognize, though, there will likely be few children (or none) onboard to befriend him.
