National Geographic “Explorer” to Antarctica…… we will never be able to top this spectacular vacation. The ship is an example of impeccable attention to detail. Everything about this ship is designed to make this a perfect trip for the guests on board. The crew is exceptional. Every single member of the team on board this ship was friendly, knowledgeable, attentive to our needs, and always put our safety first. Our cabin was perfect. Plenty of room for two people, spotless, all the amenities we could possibly need. The food on board was as good as any restaurant we go to in our hometown of Chicago. There is a library on board and a small dining area for afternoon tea, plus a huge lounge that was used for cocktails and lectures by the scientists on board. The scenery is nothing short of spectacular, and the wildlife is amazing. My husband and I travel for work and travel for pleasure and nothing has ever compared to this trip.

Cabin 326
Outstanding! Large, spotlessly clean, nicely decorated.
