Default Walking on the Antarctic Ice

I've seen several ads for MS Discovery and other smaller lines that will take you to Antarctica and let you walk on the Land/Ice mass.

Are there any of the larger Cruise lines that do more than just scenic cruising around the Antarctic peninsula?

Not on a regular basis. I know Cunard did when they had a special 7-continent cruise a few years ago.

My brother is going on this kind of cruise in Jan. Not sure which line he's cruising but I would be more than happy to ask him.

I worked for Quark at their office in Darien a number of years ago. The trips look like alot of fun.

And a good perk was if you work for them, your trips are free!!

Thanks for the replies.

I was looking for one of the following:
RCI
NCL
Carnival
Princess
Celebrity
Costa
etc.

Some of these lines will offer "scenic cruising" but not actual stops.
