Release your inner explorer and join us Thursday, June 14, to learn about our 2019 Signature Journey: Water, Wildlife & the Wonders of Antarctica.

You’ll also have the opportunity to meet Peter Neill, Director of the World Ocean Observatory and Borton Overseas’ featured lecturer on this Antarctic journey. Peter is a renowned expert in maritime history, art, exploration, and marine environmental issues.

Sunniva Sorby will also join us June 14 at Norway House. She made history in 1993 as one of the four team members of the American Women’s Antarctic Expedition. Sunniva is passionate about Antarctica and has worked in the Polar Regions for the past 20 years. She and Peter will share their insights on several aspects of Antarctica, including how its environment impacts the earth.

Antarctica is one of the most pristine, untouched places on Earth, and Water, Wildlife & the Wonders of Antarctica will be a trip-of-lifetime. From stunning landscapes, glaciers and icebergs, to fascinating wildlife including penguins, seals and whales, this will be an incredible adventure.

Of course, we’ll discuss the cruise itinerary’s highlights, and everything the journey has to offer the avid traveler.
