A expedition to Antarctica does not have to be Rough, something I learned on my trip on the Ocean Diamond. The Captain and the expedition leader made choices of site landings and lengths of stays based on their knowledge and experience and paying attention to the weather. We experienced 2 weeks of solid good sailing. able to zodiac or make landings every day. The expedition team from Quark truly made our experience memorable, not because they provided expert knowledge or ensured we were seeing the things or doing the things we wanted. it was because they enjoyed their job and the experience along with us. The same could be said for the ships crew. They were always going out of their way to make sure we had what we wanted. From the room steward to the barmen. The food service Buffet breakfast and lunch, sit down dinner were always filled with verity. I could have gained 10lbs if I had not had control of myself myself. Food was fresh flavorful and different everyday.I have sailed on almost every major carrier and I rank the ocean diamond in the top 5. for service and food quality. The rooms are comfortable but not overly spacious. and because this was an expedition the only entertainment you got were your excursions. Read Less

This ship was contracted by Noble Caledonia to circumnavigate Iceland. Nobel Caledonia would have to be the worst organised cruise ship company I have dealt with. Their systems were clunky, they could cope with two people in the same cabin with different addresses so kept sending material to only one party. They were advised that both of us would be arriving in the UK before the cruise and instructed that printed material should go to 2 UK addresses. This did not happen. The cruise was on and old ship, the Ocean Diamond. The only things that the kitchen did well were breakfasts and cakes, the rest of the food whilst edible, was uninteresting and not very tasty.Very disappointing! There was no entertainment at all on the ship despite the fact that there was a lounge with a dance floor and electronic equipment. On the plus side, the expedition team were great - helpful and flexible, and the expeditions and shore excursions were excellent and well organised. The lectures too were very interesting and professionally presented. Read Less
