Cruise to Antarctica for Unplugged Quality Time
With your Teenager
[06.09 - Norwalk, CT] Quality time with your son or daughter is a true treat for any parent who has a hard time competing with their smart-phone addicted offspring. In honor of fathers and mothers who dream of the perfect unplugged vacation with their teenager, Quark Expeditions is announcing a special opportunity to travel with your teen to Antarctica this December. And the good news is that King George Island is the only guaranteed hot spot where American President Obama's favorite hand-held communication device will work in the entire 1200-mile Antarctic Peninsula region.
Dads or moms that travel to Antarctica with their teens on Clipper Adventurer from December 19 to December 29, 2009 will save 50% off the cost of any of their teenager's berths, when the parent pays the per person brochure rate - the more teens that travel with a parent the greater the savings. This special fare is available through Quark Expeditions, a Connecticut based, polar expedition specialist. A parent who want to take advantage of the Travel with Teens to Antarctica special offer should call 1-866-961-2960 or +1-203-803-2887 or learn more.
Here are a few reasons why both parent and teen just might like this awesome experience.
Jeans and parkas are the dress code. During an Antarctic voyage, there will be no embarrassing wardrobe choices because jackets and ties are not required. The obligatory parka is often provided by the expedition operator, ensuring that no teenager will stand out from the crowd.
Cool gear to pack – Teens should pack an Mp3 players with headphones and a device for charging the player. Trips to Antarctica are about an absence of sound, a. k. a. silence. An overworked parent has been known to welcome the change. Teens on the other hand often find the primordial calm unnerving for the first few days of the voyage. Other essential gear includes waterproof backpacks, long underwear and heavy duty socks, all essential gear for expedition travel.
BBQ and Burgers on the menu - Fabulous but not fussy food will be served. Shipboard al fresco barbecues with backdrops of stunning mountains and sparkling glaciers are part of the Antarctic Peninsula expedition experience.
