Just learned that Aurora Expeditions have cancelled this season's Deep Antarctica program due to lack of numbers.
"We are offering passengers alternatives such as special rates on Antarctic Peninsula but are assessing each case individually," said a spokesperson for Aurora.
Due to leave Hobart aboard Marina Svetaeva, the three effected voyages are:
The 27-day ‘Mawson’s Antarctica’ (11 December 2009 – 6 January 2010) and the two 26-day ‘Ross Sea Explorer’ expeditions (7 January – 1 February 2010, returning to Bluff New Zealand) and Bluff, New Zealand (2 February – 27 February 2010, returning to Hobart).
Aurora Expeditions' Antarctic Peninsula program is unaffected.
