flying across the Drake
I heard that the Drake Passage between South America and Antarctica gets seriously rough...I guess flying would be a better option. It seems there are flights from Punta Arenas (Chile) that land on the Antarctic Peninsula, where you then are herded into a normal ship...either way you ended up doing the traditional Antarctica cruise.
I'd love going to Antarctica just to see the emperor penguins...I saw this documentary on TV and these penguins are like 4 feet tall and 100 lbs in weight. It would be nice to explore on foot and not just be on the ship. Going all the way there and paying all that money, I would expect that.
