MS Ushuaia

Just three berths remain on the three-week cruise that visits Stanley for the unveiling of the Southern Monument, and visits the bases where British support staff and scientists have worked since the 1950s.  Antarctic veterans, together with friends of the Trust and relatives of those who died, who wish to see the Antarctic for the first time, form the party.  The cruise ship MS Ushuaia will be wholly in the Trust’s hands and accompanying the party will be polar guides Tudor Morgan (ex Rothera Base Commander and ex Operations Manager of the United Kingdom Antarctic Trust (UKAHT)) and his wife Rachel who is the Director of the UKAHT.  The ship visits the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Signy Island and as many historic bases in the Antarctic Peninsula as time and weather allow.  Rod Rhys Jones (Chairman of BAMT) and Brian Dorsett Bailey (Trustee of BAMT) will be among the passengers.
