It's an expedition, not a cruise

Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin: Veranda Suite

Well, it was an expedition cruise, not a floating buffet.

We stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed every moment (except the air transfers). The emphasis is on the wildlife tours via zodiacs (similar to the SilverSea Arctic & Antarctic trips).

Be ready to get dirty, sweaty, wet, cold and tired. The boat was divided into 2 groups and the first group generally set out by 7:30am. We were generally all back on the boat by noon and the afternoon trip was generally around 3pm. So there was time for a nap.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin VR

it was fine. more than enough room. Ours had a strange cutout with a sofa in it. We glimpsed a bed in the same spot in another suite.

We always like to have a veranda, makes it easy to check on the weather...
