Recommended by friends and duration suited our plans. The crew was exceptional , the Naturalists very informed and interesting and the Resident National Geographic Photographer was very patient and a good educator who was very generous with her time and thoughtful presentations.Sir Tim Jarvis was a consummate presenter and very approachable throughout the expedition. The daily zodiac trips were carefully planned and mindful of guest safety and experience. The "Open Bridge" policy was a highlight with a very informed and passionate Skipper and crew. Their efforts to locate wildlife and enhance the guests experience was exceptional. The cuisine was first class where the Chef Sara, catered for everyone with innovative menus every day. The variety was exceptional and the quality of the ingredients could not be faulted. There were several options for dining and this was a bonus. The shore excursions were extremely well organised by the expedition leaders and every day was a different experience Highly recommend.

Antarctica the White Continent was a dream come true in many respects.

Cabin
Midship cabin was very comfortable.
Spacious and well serviced and always clean.
Book early to get mid ship, any deck is good.
