I wish I could be on that cruise
Drakes Passage going to Antatrica - gee it was rough, not !!!!
one of the many icebergs on our Zodiac trip

being from Australia there are no other options for us to cruise to this destination. Being able to start in Buenos Aries and fly to our port via a charter was very handy. Once at port we were provided the added tour option the the national park, don't miss this. We were welcomed on board and from then on the standard did not diminish. Every aspect of the cruise especially the calm sea across Drakes Passage was a bonus in both directions. The crew are friendly accommodating.

The expeditions by Zodiac once in the Antartica by experts was second to none. Their knowledge each day , the shore excursions were fantastic.

Each night entertainment was provided with very professional persons. The shows varied and were of a high quality.

Cabin Review

Cabin Delux State room

Whilst clean and tidy there was a constant smell emanating from the toilet. When we enquired there was no response to being able to fix.

Being midships and on a mid deck is a plus to stop any cruise.

otherwise the availability to the balcony was definitely useful when in Antartica for viewing in comfort without the cold.

The bed was great the facility with the bar fridge being restocked every day and that all beverages were not charged as a additional cost anywhere on the ship drinks.

Very comfortable and good location to all facilities.
