Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin:

Cruising with Linblad/Nat Geo was as opportunity to observe wildlife on the 7th Continent while having naturalist readily available to answer questions. Captain Martin Graser and his bridge crew were readily available, friendly and professional. They were also instrumental in spotting wildlife.

We enjoyed exploring the departure cities of Santiago and Ushuaia. The cities of Sewell and Valparaiso were educational experiences that we elected to visit by arriving to Chile a few days early.

The onboard WiFi did not work a couple days at sea and upon return to Ushuaia, the day before disembarking.

Cabin Review

Cabin Dual

The room was very well maintained. It was the perfect size considering so little time was spent in the room. The TV program option did not work, but again, we spent very little time in our room. The movie options and documentary programs were great. The outside Antarctic scenery was our favorite thing to watch from the bow or from the lounge when it was windy. Quickly, the windows were covered in sea salt and that made it difficult to spot wildlife from inside.
