Tahoe City, CA, July 7, 2010 – AdventureSmith Explorations (http://www.adventuresmithexplorations.com/) the active travel company that secures matches between adventure-seeking clients and a treasure trove of small, expedition ships announces an unprecedented introductory rate starting at just $2,795 per person for an eleven-day itinerary on its new Antarctic cruises aboard the 124-passenger M/S Expedition.

Said AdventureSmith’s owner and founder Todd Smith, “We feel this is the best value in Antarctica at this time. She is one of the nicest ships, with a top notch crew and guides. Recently there have been great offers up to 50 percent off Antarctica but these have been on $20,000 cruises. We have never seen an introductory price in this region with as much value and as low as this.”

M/S Expedition was thoroughly overhauled only two years ago for her operation in Antarctica. She operates two comprehensive itineraries, one the 11-day “Antarctic Peninsula” http://www.adventuresmithexplorations.com/itinerarydetails.php/advid/77 and a 20-day “Spirit of Shackleton” cruise that includes the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia Islands and Falkland Islands http://www.adventuresmithexplorations.com/itinerarydetails.php/advid/311. The season runs November 2010 through February 2011 with multiple monthly departures.

Smith said this polar expedition ship’s spacious decks provide excellent viewing and its newly renovated cabins are some of the largest in the industry, all with ocean-facing window or porthole and private en-suite facilities.
