Antarctica from New Zealand or South America

I am considering a trip to Antarctica and was wondering if anyone had taken a trip from New Zealand as opposed to South America? I was inspired by my college geology professor to visit New Zealand one day and travel on to Antarctica. I would appreciate the thoughts of other seasoned travelers to the Blue Continent

Not for the faint of heart transdermscop.com a must

In 2007 Explorer hit an iceberg pretty scary so choose wisely

The cruise ship, Explorer hit an iceburg an was indangered of sinking off the coast of Antartica. Luckily, all of her passengers were rescued.

El Supremo was a little to costly for me saved 50%

on a TravelDynamics.com sale but they are the best for this.

Also best in the Galapagos which was far more exciting and

lower stress for me.

Happy Hunting!

Typically, cruise to Anartica departs from South America.
