Voyage of a lifetime

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Ushuaia
We had always wanted to visit Antarctica and we are so glad we chose the Fram.
Everything was exceptionally well organised - we were most impressed by the attention to detail and safety.

The ship was very comfortable -even in a force 11 storm we didn't feel ill!!. All the cabins were well apponted, clean and tidy. The food was excellent. Although there was not always a hugh choice, there was always a meat, fish and vegetarian option. On one occasion we didn't like any of the options so the chef did us steak instead.

The crew were fantastic - very friendly and couldn't do enough to help you. This was ALL the crew - from the Captian downwards!

The visits ashore were made using the Polarcirkel boats - great fun. We were lucky to make 5 landings in Antarctica itself. When chosing an Antrctic voyage - be aware that a lot of the cruises don't actually allow you to land - you just sail the Antrctic waters.

If you are looking for a cruise with lots of More entertainment, then this s not for you. ther were talks about the wildlife and what we would see but this is very mush an 'Expedition/Explorer' cruise so there is no entertainment as you would get on a large cruise ship. Howver, you are with people who are all really keen to experience the Antarctic.

Throughtly recommended - we are looking to go on the Fram again!! Less
