We enjoyed an amazing experience with Hurtigruten on their MS Midnatsol ship sailing from Punta Arenas, travelling along the Chilean Fjords to Antarctica Peninsula and back. The view was breathtaking throughout. When we cruised on smaller boats to look at glaciers and icebergs was incredible and satisfying. Accommodation was very good and comfortable. Food was varied and very good too. Expeditions and on board lectures from experts were excellent. It was an educational and adventurous cruise. Hurtigruten did an excellent job getting us from London through Madrid to Santiago then Punta Arenas and back without a single hitch! It was impressive and I will use them again.
The staff were excellent and friendly especially those in the reception, restaurant, bar, cleaning and the expedition team.
The expedition team members were all graduates and experts in their field. We had excellent lectures which were very informative and we had the first explorer to trek the Arctic and Antarctica in the same year. Every passenger on board seemed to be delighted with the cruise. The expedition team made every effort to ensure we were able to cruise or land at every convenient location
Spacious even thought the initial description we were given said they were small cabins. Perhaps it is a matter of how we all define 'small' but we found it comfortable and spacious enough for two of us to use. It was well cleaned and nice so we immediately felt at home. It had a square window rather than a round hole. We loved it!
Port was small but fine. Too excited to be concerned about anything trivial.
