This week’s outtake from my book, ‘Cruising the World – From Gondolas to Megaships’ is a photo of passengers from an expedition cruise ship exploring Paradise Bay in a Zodiac on the Antarctic Peninsula.

There is a three-page feature on Antarctica in ‘Cruising the World” (copies now available with free shipping – code SHIPFREE -on this website). Pictured are calving glaciers, wildlife, picnicking on the deck of the expedition ship, and a most unusual place to spend a day at the beach (yes, with sunbathers in swim suits).
