Default Orion Antarctica 27Dec09 - Discounted Cabin Share Available

Hi. My cruise companion has just had to cancel due to health reasons so I am desperately looking for someone to take his place as I can not afford to pay the single supplement on this 18 night Orion Antarctica cruise departing on 27 Dec 2009.

The original twin share cruise fare paid was over AUD$22485 per person, but as my companion is already going to lose $6000 if he cancels, you can snap up a bargain (it's all relative!) at only AUD$16485 (approx USD$15000). Cabin is on a guarantee basis for a minimum cat A cabin.

Here's a summary and itinerary of the cruise:

Mawson's Antarctica - Commonwealth Bay
2009 Departure - December 27
Joining guests and the specialist Expedition Team onboard Orion for the Mawson’s Antarctic voyage will be renowned scientist and media presenter Dr Karl Kruszelnicki. While onboard, Dr Karl will share his wealth of knowledge with guests through a series of fabulously entertaining and witty talks presented in his inimitable style.

On this 18 night voyage Orion will cross the Antarctic Circle before heading for Cape Denison and a memorable visit to Douglas Mawson's historic huts, built for his 1911-1914 'Australian Antarctic Expedition'. Orion's 10 Zodiacs, the perfect expedition transport, will be put to good use for landings ashore in both Antarctica and the sub-Antarctic Snares, Auckland and Macquarie Islands, pristine breeding grounds for countless wildlife

Day 1 Bluff (Invercargill), New Zealand
Day 2 Snares Islands, New Zealand
Day 3 Auckland Islands, New Zealand
Day 4 At sea
Day 5 Macquarie Island
Day 6 Macquarie Island
Day 7 At sea
Day 8 At sea
Day 9 At sea
Day 10 Commonwealth Bay Region
Day 11 Commonwealth Bay Region
Day 12 Commonwealth Bay Region
Day 13 Commonwealth Bay Region
Day 14 At sea
Day 15 At sea
Day 16 At sea
Day 17 At sea
Day 18 At sea
Day 19 Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

Further info is available at:

I am a 40 year old married male non smoker. My only stipulation is that you are a non smoker. Other than that I dont care if you are 20 or 100, male or female, straight or gay. I just urgently need someone to fill this cabin

I need to advise the cruise line by next Monday, 02 Nov, if I have a replacement passenger or else cancel the entire booking to avoid even higher cancellation fees. Please either reply by posting or email me at aflaptop@comcen.com.au

So if you have always wanted to cruise to Antarctica but couldn't find someone who could afford it and didnt want your cruise fare to look like a mortgage by taking a single cabin....now is the time!
