Quark Expeditions--Arctic

Review for Sea Adventurer to Arctic

User Avatar

My wife and I chose to travel with Quark Expeditions because we had a pleasant experience on a trip to Antarctica approximately 16 years ago. The company describes itself as the leader in Polar travel. Our trip in Sept. 2017 went up the eastern coast of Baffin Island, crossed to Greenland and came south along the western coast. Our ship was the Ocean Atlantic. This ship was a substitute for ...

Booked this expedition via my travel agent who also came with a mixed group of Aussies (16) where we had already travelled for 10 days or so from Iguazu Falls, Buenos Aries, El Calafante and Ushuaia where we boarded the Sea Adventurer. From the initial embarkation we were made to feel very welcome and part of the ship community - lotts of smiling happy faces and attentive crew and service ...

We were happy to arrive in Punta Arenas, Chile from Houston one day before embarkation. It had been a long trip and we able to rest up before the BIG adventure began. Next day we met with the amazing expedition leaders (all of whom are serious scientists) and got the news of a midnight (!) departure for King George Island. The weather was closing in and Quark sent us ahead rather than try to ...

We took this cruise which was labeled Greenland, and Arctic Canada. The hope was to see wildlife in the Arctic area , local villages and the local environment. The trip overall was average and had its high and low points. The ship, the Sea Adventurer is showing some age and is due for some overall over the next year. Functionally it is on the slow side at 12 knots and does not have stabilizers ...

Go for the Itinerary, NOT the ship.

We were on a trip from Lisbon to Amsterdam. This is a unique itinerary for this ship which was on its way from the Antarctic to the Arctic. The tour manager was Zegrahm who, as usual, did an excellent job. We had previously been on this ship when it was the Clipper Adventurer on a trip to the Antarctic Because it isn't otherwise covered, I'm starting this review with Internet access ...

Costa Rica & Panama Canal with Zegrahm Expeditions

Review for Sea Adventurer to Panama Canal & Central America

After 6 National Geographic/Lindblad trips, we made a change and went with Zegrahm Expeditions. What a huge difference after only one trip, we will never go back. We are heading to the Pantanal in Brazil with them in just a few weeks for our second trip. Far better organization on the ship and the food was better. Even lobster, shrimp and tuna - you won't see any of that on a Lindblad ship. ...

Antarctica is special, Quark is not.

Like many others, this was a trip of a lifetime. Unfortunately I think we chose the wrong company to provide that experience. There were many positives about the trip (the team leader, Hadleigh, made every effort to provide us with as many landings as possible. The other members of the team were very intelligent and shared so much information with us and I cannot short the shore excursions and ...

Zegrahm - A poor choice for the Antarctic, poor customer service

Review for Sea Adventurer to Antarctica

User Avatar
6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

A Zegrahm cruise on a vintage Quark ship, which they use routinely. We selected Zegrahm for the itinerary. Unfortunately we missed the entire west coast of Antarctica, barely made it to the Peninsula, because the ship wasn't in full working order. A propeller was seriously malfunctioning which Zegrahm knew before we departed. Hence we missed 4 days of the itinerary, arrived late at many landings ...

Nice trip, a bit bumpy on the way back

First note that this was NOT with Quark Expeditions but with Zegrahm Expeditions, which leased the same ship. Thus this is NOT A REVIEW OF QUARK! Just the ship and itinerary as done by Zegrahm. Zegrahm is however owned by the same parent company as Quark. There is no entry for Zegrahm above. This was an all-included cruise, including beer and wine at lunch and dinner and the numerous parties. All ...
