Sail Date: Jan 2019
Cabin: Lanai Ocean-View Stateroom

We were keen to visit Antarctica but did not cherish the idea of being tossed around in the Drake passage aboard a small vessel. We therefore chose HAL Zaandam although it did mean no setting foot on Antarctica.

It was the best decision that we made and right from the word go, the cruise was just great. The sights, especially during the 4 days in Antarctica were unforgettable. Living on board for 22 days was every bit comfortable with great food, service and stateroom no 3365.

Talks by expedition team leaders were highly informative. Other entertainment activities were also good but perhaps not great..
