    I just got back home from Antarctica on Nov. 9th, 2017 and we crossed the Drake by ship. I have to say the passage was a bit rough going to the continent and a few of the passengers (me included) did not move around much during the 2 and a half day crossing however coming back to Argentina was a pure joy as we had beautiful weather all the way in. They have a saying in Ushuaia which describes well the passage: "the Drake can be a lake or a shake"! Personally I would not change a thing as I wanted to experience everything about this expedition and did. However our boat was not very big (132 passengers) and we got rocked around quite a bit in the 90 knot winds we incountered on the Drake therefor I would suggest you check the size of the boat or cruise ship you are planning to board before making a decision about the passage. I would also strongly recommend that you forget luxury in chosing your cabin and bunk in the lower decks if you decide to cross with a smaller boat! You should not spend too much time in your cabin as the scenery is unbelievable on that continent and remember the rocking is much amplified as you get on the upper decks! about 1 month ago
