This is truly an adventure and not a cruise. We were able to explore, enjoy and learn about Antarctica in a most pleasurable and comfortable environment. We experienced the habitat while also observing ongoing research and participating in lectures on the history of the continent. This was a unique trip and an experience that we will share with our children and grandchildren. The naturalists gave us background on the areas we would explore the next day. The local inhabitants did not fail to give us a display every day, including Humpbacks bubble-net feeding off of the bow of the ship. The Captain daily maneuvered the ship into positions where we had the best chance to feel the full experience of Antarctica. Many evenings he followed wildlife of interest to help us observe while also helping the research staff complete their missions. The onboard staff could not be more accommodating. Chris made sure our table was available each meal and learned our wine selections quickly.

Outstanding Adventure
