Arctic Svalbard and Norwegian Coast

National Geographic Orion Cruise Review by joefox

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: the Arctic

Every aspect of this expedition exceeded expectations (even though we had travelled with Linblad before).

This was a photo expedition and we had full access to a photo instructor and a professional Nat Geo photographer at all times throughout the voyage.

The captain and crew went above and beyond to provide access to all types of wildlife and scenic landscapes. (Polar bears, walruses, etc. and Norway's fjords and fishing villages)

The onboard facilities, service, food and camaraderie were outstanding. Every request was fulfilled quickly and with courtesy and friendliness.

The expedition leaders and naturalists were extremely knowledgable and friendly and the photo experts were incredibly helpful with technical as well as artistic advice and support.

Every detail from the moment of our arrival in Oslo, to the charter flight to Svalbard, embarkation in Longyearbyen through final disembarkation in Copenhagen was handled professionally and without any stress or problems.

I look forward to our next trip with Linblad.
