Polar Latitudes

Polar Latitudes set out to embrace the best aspects of the early years of expedition cruising when adventure companies formed strong alliances with a select network of international sales agents. Their focus is still on alliances with tour operator partners and their passengers, providing world-class expedition experiences led by experienced expedition teams on the small sister ships Hebridean Sky and Island Sky.

Hebridean Sky (formerly Sea Explorer and Corinthian II) and Island Sky are all-suite ships with 56 and 55 cabins respectively. Both are known for their elegance and comfort, offering their guests a perfect combination of on-board comfort and adventurous exploration. Polar Latitudes includes an on-site Passenger Service Representative on all voyages.

Recent extensive upgrades have transformed the Hebridean Sky and Island Sky into two of the world’s finest small ships. All suites are outward facing, with queen-sized or twin beds, a sofa, satellite TV, DVD/CD player, telephone, mini-refrigerator, marble-appointed bathroom with fine toiletries and an area of 225ft² (21m²) or more. The Owner's Suite (35.7m²), Penthouse Suites (30m²) and Veranda Suites (24m²) feature private balconies, accessed via sliding-glass doors.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are changed daily, with an emphasis on providing delicious, balanced and nutritional cuisine. Returning from excursions, passengers enjoy complimentary refreshments, afternoon tea and all-day coffee in The Club, a great space for relaxation surrounded by panoramic windows.

Polar Latitudes offer 3 different voyages to the Antarctic Peninsula plus 2 including the Falklands and South Georgia, along with another that attempts to cross the Antarctic Circle.

We ask tour operators to please register directly with Polar Latitudes to receive information, images, availability, and to hold options on departures. On request Polar Latitudes can prepare your own branded PDF version of their brochure.
