True... but I've been to Antarctica and South Georgia is the main reason I booked.
Speaking of tough choices!
I think the voyages are pretty different, so it's definitely a matter of personal preference. I've looked at that Cape to Cape voyage for years now. It looks fantastic, but I get antsy about that many sea days. Plus it's still too long of a voyage (21 days) for us to get away.
The standard SS itinerary to South Georgia is 18 days because it adds the Falklands. That's almost an impossibility for us to be away that long, as we both still work.
This 15-day cruise is pushing it but can be done with advance planning. I'll gladly trade the Falklands for another visit to Antarctica. I think between the potential differences in weather, the differences in season, and the fact that 10 years will have passed since our last visit, it will be different enough to justify another visit. And even if it's the same, it's magnificent.
So, both amazing voyages, but I personally like this one better.
