4.0 out of 5 stars Great information!
I am going to Antarctica in November and really couldn't find any travel books. I got this one and am very happy with the information on the areas that most cruise ships visit. I would recommend the book to anyone going on a cruise to Antarctica.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very basic introduction to Antarctica
Nice photos. Basic info on the sights. Better description of the various animals and birds you may encounter. Small, light and easy to pack.

Mr. Carey's guide is an excellent introduction to the Falklands and to the parts of Antarctica to which tourists normally cruise. We learned much from the guide and highly recommend it to anyone who intends to travel to these areas.

This review is from: Antarctica Cruising Guide: Includes Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Ross Sea (Paperback)
I was looking for a book on Antarctica that had info on both the islands and the wildlife since we are taking an icebreaker cruise this year. It seems to meet my needs and has a lot of great pictures. the true test will come when we actually travel.

This review is from: Antarctica Cruising Guide: Includes Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Ross Sea (Paperback)
This book has a little bit of everything in it, a good reference manual for the geology, history and wildlife. A nice reference for a trip to Antarctic. The pictures of wildlife will be helpful for identification.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful pre-trip read., December 24, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Antarctica Cruising Guide: Includes Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Ross Sea (Paperback)
This guide book is very comprehensive, including fauna and flora and plenty of maps as well as basic history. I would have liked more about the early explorers. Some more detailed advice on what to pack or wear for an antarctic cruise would be handy but all in all it is good value and I recommend it to those planning a trip.

It is a useful guide for our upcoming trip to Antarctica. Gives us a good idea of what to pack and what to expect even though we will use a different cruise line.
