Also, is there anything else to keep in mind when planning a trip there? thanks for input!
There are three types of cruises that you can take to Antarctica: expedition cruises, luxury Cruises and small ship cruises.
Cruise season lasts from November to early March, and you definitely don't want to visit during the dark and brutally cold winter.
If you want to see some whales, then February and March are the months for you. December and January are typically the warmest months in Antarctica, and they also see the most sunlight.
Also, to keep costs down try and arrange a cruise to Antarctica that last only two weeks, and try and book yourself with a smaller cruise if possible rather than a larger cruise, as you'll get to explore mainland Antarctica.
