I've never been to Antarctica.

And according to some reports, this may be the best time for tourists to visit what can be called the world's last frontier. There are not many expeditions available to tourists to Antarctica because the continent has been mostly used strictly for scientific endeavors. And now, new rules are being put in place to prevent many of the problems invasion by tourists can bring. There is a call for limiting the amount of tourist ships allowed, using only ships with fortified hulls, and a ban on those that use heavy oil. There is one ship being built, the Le Boreal, that will hold 199 passengers, and has an indoor heated pool, steam rooms and private balconies.

That I'd like to see.
