There are reports around the Internet at various travel weblogs that the least expensive way to visit Antarctica is to travel to Ushuaia and book a cruise at the last minute. However, how soon you can secure a space aboard a vessel leaving for Antarctica at the last minute depends on the occupancy of the vessel and the policies of the company operating the vessel — plus you have no idea how little — or how much — money you are going to spend.
In the case of this sale, you have the opportunity to secure a reservation for definite dates and times — subject to the weather and other potential variables of traveling to Antarctica — for relatively not much more money than running down blind to Ushuaia…
…but if you are so inclined, you can also book a reservation for a triple occupancy cabin for less than the lowest sale price at any time on some itineraries as long as there is availability.
In other words, do your research and ensure that the cruise ship on which you decide to embark is the best option for you in terms of price, amenities, schedule and other factors.
