Sail Date: Jul 2015

Aurora looked after us from start to finish booked everything the trip itself was far beyond our expectations the Russian crew went out of their way to make the trip great, the guides were outstanding , knowledgeable and friendly and had our safety in mind at all times with out being police like. We went with some reservations about the trip with things we had read on the internet but they were all far from the truth , the food was really good and lots of it which can be a bad thing. The bar was really well priced and worked on the honour system after hours. The ship was very clean and comfortable and being a small ship holding 50 passengers friendships were soon formed. The time spent ashore was brilliant being small group enabled us to do things big groups can't do and see. Could not recommend this organization enough; will defiantly travel with them again. A lot of the passengers had done several trips with them
