I wanted to make sure i was on the best possible ship for comfort food and experience.
From meeting at the airport and flight to Ushiuia to the short sightseeing to the wonderful lunch in a fabulous hotel above the town to the smooth transition to Explorer.nothing was missing.
muck room was small but worked
Fabulous and stylish jacket and puffer given on first day.
Food continued to be good though not fantastic always there was something to satisfy.
as soon as the zodiac transfers started I realised how well run this ship is we had at least 5 people getting us on the zodiac and 4 at the arrival end to help get us off. always someones hand to help especially for a novice snow walker.
always a smiling face even when we were late to the zodiac to get on from the muck room because we forgot one piece of layering/gloves or camera.
the wait staff were exceptional addressing us by name from the first night-amazing!!
our ever smiling cabin man and butler always there to help and keep the cabin spotless.
lots of rough weather on way to and from sandwich islands and across Drake.but to be expected being at the end of the world.
I could not fault the well run cruise and wonder if the other ships doing Antarctica are as well run.
Disembarcation was smooth and transfer to airport easy
cabin 410 Vista suite
The room was large but not as large as Spirit of course.
bathroom was big enough .
would have liked to be able to turn off announcements as they were very loud sometimes at 6.30 am. I understand they need to be able to wake people but surely there could be the normal announcements and the emergency ones.
