Have always wanted to experience Antarctica, but hesitated due to the cost. However, when we found Hurtigruten, we decided to go for it. We were able to book an expedition suite cabin for about the same price as a standard cabin on other ships, and found it to be excellent value. The service on the ship was exceptional, especially the expedition crew. It was a very friendly atmosphere on the ship, and we really felt as though we were part of the "family". We felt safe every step of the way. The crew was very good at adjusting to the severe weather conditions to give us the best possible Antarctic experience possible. The days at sea were quite rough because of the small size of the ship, and we experienced a hurricane in the Drake Passage, but at no time did we feel at risk. Would highly recommend this trip if it's on your bucket list.
