Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2019
  • Destination: Antarctica

The cruise was amazing. These ships are superb and so smoothly do what they are designed for. Inc getting every out into the zodiacs often. The sights in Antarctica are stunning and the wildlife. Well humpbacks penguins galore and special sights like minkes up close in a zodiac. 6am rise for a pod of orcas and to top it off a blue whale in the weddell sea. The guides and the zodiac drivers did a great job of getting you close to interesting sights and explaining everything well.

On the ship the crew were great. Everything was so well taken care off.

And the food well. Level 2 is Devine. I guess what you expect on a French ship!

The crossing back across the Drake was windy but what's a trip to Antarctica without having to say you have endured the Drake...

These Ponant ships are excellent. I would do it again in a heart beat. Maybe a tropical trip next time or Alaska.
