    I am posting this because I would like to travel to Antarctica and would be willing to work something out with someone who is interested in taking advantage of the following offer...


    This is a “flash” sale on four select twelve-day cruises to Antarctica by Quark Expeditions, all of which depart from Ushuaia, Argentina this month: purchase a berth to travel to Antarctica and a companion travels in a second berth for $1.00.

    Single rates are available at a 50-percent discount.

    Reservations for the promotion will open on Monday, November 7, 2011 at 8:30 in the morning Eastern Standard Time and will close on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 8:00 in the morning Eastern Standard Time.

    Terms & Conditions:
    • Promotion applies to new bookings only.
    • Bookings must be confirmed on the day of reservation.
    • Inventory can be held for a maximum of 4 hours and cannot be held overnight.
    • Full payment is due at time of booking and Quark via credit card.
    • Bookings are accepted only between Monday at 8:30 AM and Thursday at 8 PM eastern time. No extensions will be offered.
    • Cabin types are based on availability at time of booking and cabins numbers cannot be guaranteed.
    • Quark reserves the right to change cabins numbers up until departure.
    • Single share accommodation is available at 50% off regular published rates.
    • Single accommodation is available at the full published price for double accommodation (i.e. free single supplement based on regular pricing).
    • This offer cannot be combined with any other offer and no additional price reduction of any kind can be applied (i.e. no past passenger loyalty discount).
    • This offer is not applicable on adventure options or other product.

    I am posting this because I would like to go to Antarctica, and this is essentially a half-price sale, meaning that two people could go on one of these cruises for as little as $2,500.00 per person...

    I desperately want to do this trip. One of my lifetime goals is to step foot on every continent! Can't let me wife sit out on this one and currently she is in medical school, so will have to wait. Good Luck

    It is expensive for me as well.

    What I was thinking of doing is offering a business class award ticket of equivalent value to be used later if someone were to cover the cost of the trip to Antarctica, if someone was interested in that...
    Well, that is my goal as well, and Antarctica is the only continent to which I have not visited yet.

    While certainly not a requirement, it would have been nice to travel with a fellow Brooklynite.

    I have had no interest expressed to me, so I suppose no one is interested.

    I have been attempting to go to Antarctica for several years.

    In any event, as I cannot go, I hope that someone was able to take advantage of this offer...

    Can this be combined with the Share and Save Referral Program - Available All Season Long | Quark Expeditions
    I would like to get paid $499 to travel to Antarctica!
    From the Share and Save T&Cs: "The savings certificate can be combined with other offers."

    Canarsie,
    I had lunch yesterday at a NY deli in Colorado. Many of the menu items (including the bagels) are imported from NYC.

    On the menu:
