Celebrity Infinity Antartic cruise February 2014

Am booked on this cruise and just found out there are no excursions offered to actually step foot on Antarctica. Does anyone know of any way around this? Is there any possible alternatives or work arounds?

The alternative is to research and book a berth on an expedition ship not a cruise liner.

If you check the Top Question on top right of this page you will see FAQs listing all the companies and ships.

Sorry for the caveat emptor moment, Laura, but if Antarctic excursions are what you wanted you should've booked elsewhere. If you can't get a refund from Celebrity, enjoy your cruise and consider it an appetite-whetter for the real thing.

Live and learn I guess, everything non-refundable. Thought there might be a way. Thanks for the responses, even though they are not what I wanted to hear.

Consider your drive by cruise a taster and when you get home start saving for the real expedition and pop back here to research.

Would be great if you pop back in anyway with a trip report as we do get questions about the liner drive bus and the majority of us can't answer them as we have only done expeditions. So it would be great to have a current trip report to link for those posters.
