Emma McEwin, the great-granddaughter of Sir Douglas Mawson, will be a guest lecturer aboard Aurora Expeditions’ ice-strengthened Marina Svetaeva on a 27-day round cruise from Hobart to Antarctica on December 12.
McEwin, author of ‘An Antarctic Affair,’ will give passengers an insight into the life and heroic exploits of her famous ancestor as they sail for Mawson’s Huts at Commonwealth Bay, the isolated base camp of the 1911 Australasian Antarctic Expedition.
Fares for this ‘Iceberg & Emperors’ voyage aboard the 100-passenger Marina Svetaeva, which has a fleet of inflatable zodiacs and two helicopters, cost from US$12,290 per person quad share.
