This cruise was an amazing experience getting up close to glaciers, fjords, Cape Horn, and deserted islands. The views were spectacular from cabin, deck or lounge and mooring off and going ashore by zodiac made the experience quite and adventure to enjoy the sights on shore by foot. The ship was comfortable, staff helpful and friendly, meals good and pre-excursion presentations interesting making the trips ashore more meaningful. Access throughout the ship was a challenge for those less able as stairs were the only way from cabin to dining room and steep outside steps the only access to the zodiacs. We would have appreciated a better embarking procedure where you didn't have to queue at a local travel agency with your bags and to be processed then have all day to walk and wander until you could board. The expedition cruise was very pricey but as it's a one off it was worth it for such a unique experience and we will be recommending it to others who are able and could afford it.

Cabin Review

Cabin
Twin beds with well appointed en-suite. Wonderful full side size window with comfortable seat. Well serviced. Would have liked room for a second chair so both of us could sit and enjoy the view
