5.0 out of 5 stars The best of maps
Whether you are visiting the Ross Sea, the Antarctic Peninsula or even South Georgia, this is simply the best general map available for an Antarctic cruise. (There is a more detailed South Georgia map in the same series.) Designed for tourist cruises, the map consists of a Continental Antarctic Map, along with details of the Antarctic Peninsula, Ross Sea and South...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a very good map
Even though nice looking at a first glance, this is not a very good map. Usually freely supplied for Antarctic cruises from the operators, this map is good enough for just that - a cruise - and nothing more.
Would have been nice with more details, but probably not possible for that price.
Anyway, a good thing is that it contains some information on Antarctic...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a very good map, 24 May 2005

This review is from: Antarctic Explorer: Visitor's Map of the Antarctic Peninsula Region and Map of the Antarctic Continent (Ocean Explorer Maps) (Map)
Even though nice looking at a first glance, this is not a very good map. Usually freely supplied for Antarctic cruises from the operators, this map is good enough for just that - a cruise - and nothing more.
Would have been nice with more details, but probably not possible for that price.
Anyway, a good thing is that it contains some information on Antarctic research stations, historical sites and Antarctic explorers.
Still, if you use this map to find out where you are on an Antarctic cruise (as I tried), you are completely lost.
Last, but not least, one should buy any maps before one goes to South America to embark on a cruise as the supply there is much worse than here in the UK.

This review is from: Antarctic Explorer: Visitor's Map of the Antarctic Peninsula Region and Map of the Antarctic Continent (Ocean Explorer Maps) (Map)
Whether you are visiting the Ross Sea, the Antarctic Peninsula or even South Georgia, this is simply the best general map available for an Antarctic cruise. (There is a more detailed South Georgia map in the same series.) Designed for tourist cruises, the map consists of a Continental Antarctic Map, along with details of the Antarctic Peninsula, Ross Sea and South Georgia, highlighting the areas most likely to be visited. Provided you can read a map, you will always be able to plot the route that you are taking. The map also contains a good deal of extra information of historical and other interest, so it saves carrying a good number of books with you - essential when saving that baggage allowance. It is a very well put together information map for the modern Antarctic explorer and I found it extremely useful.

Simply put, never travel on an Antarctic cruise without one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for an idea of general layout, but litle more, 28 Feb 2009
This review is from: Antarctic Explorer: Visitor's Map of the Antarctic Peninsula Region and Map of the Antarctic Continent (Ocean Explorer Maps) (Map)
So far only two reviews, and very different.
If you're going on an expedition cruise then get one - 9.99 is nowt compared to what you're spending to get there, and you may as well know where you are. If you have time in Ushuaia before embarking then there are better maps available there, but not that much better.
If you need really more detailed info then go up to the bridge on board (with the permission of the officer on watch of course !) and consult the navigational charts.
