Hello, it is my first time to Antarctica(to conquer the 7th continent) and looking for a shorter cruise that will not take all of my vacation time. There is a trip through Quark on Sea Adventurer (used to be Clipper adventurer) that offers a sail south through the Drake Passage and fly back which I thought would be perfect so I can experience both and save time. Has anyone tried this? Any reviews on the trip and the boat? The boat seems more bare bones than the Natl Geo boat, but I hear it is good and less people. Also, I have read the camping is a highlight, however, my travel agent said kayaking is a highlight. Any comments on kayaking? Thanks!
