Recommended by friends and duration suited our plans. The crew was exceptional , the Naturalists very informed and interesting and the Resident National Geographic Photographer was very patient and a good educator who was very generous with her time and thoughtful presentations.Sir Tim Jarvis was a consummate presenter and very approachable throughout the expedition. The daily zodiac trips were carefully planned and mindful of guest safety and experience. The "Open Bridge" policy was a highlight with a very informed and passionate Skipper and crew. Their efforts to locate wildlife and enhance the guests experience was exceptional. The cuisine was first class where the Chef Sara, catered for everyone with innovative menus every day. The variety was exceptional and the quality of the ingredients could not be faulted. There were several options for dining and this was a bonus. The shore excursions were extremely well organised by the expedition leaders and every day was a different experience Highly recommend. Read Less

We wanted to make our 7th continent and this worked well. The 1 star is off for the excursions in Bueno Aires and Ushuaia could have been improved with voice boxes (a la Viking) and more information so we could hear the guide instead of her having to shout. The food on the boat was nothing to write home about, but it was adequate. The food is not why you take this cruise. The catamaran cruise on the lake in Ushuaia would have been improved with commentary about the Tierra del Fuego National park. There was a flash strike by LAN on our day of departure and everyone going home missed their international flight, since we didn't get to EZE until 1 am. Lindblad and the cruise director did an excellent job getting us back in the Sofitel for a night and getting our replacement flights home, plus covering expenses quickly. They must have a rapid response team or something because their response to a crisis was excellent. The parkas that come with the cruise are really very nice. It also comes with an inner lining that is outstanding. On many of the Antarctica excursions on the ice several people would wear just the inner lining. Depending on the weather, the same was true for when the ship was cruising the ice watching for whales, seals, and penguins. I would suggest at the very least, renting their boots, so you dont have to pack your own. They were quite good. We brought our own ski pants, but many others rented. There are hiking sticks available for free (beat up sticks) if you want them, so we didnt need to rent those. This is a very casual cruise so no need to dress up. Some crew were in the lounge during the day in shorts and a T shirt and this did not offend us. Plan on a poor internet experience. Read Less
