Antarctica is the trip of a lifetime and one that should be on everyones bucket list. Quark is a first rate operator with amazing guides and great crew. This is what makes the trip so incredible.

Our cruise included the Falklands/Malvinas, South Georgia and some other smaller islands along the route. Each stop was more impressive than the last, leading up to the incredible Antarctic Peninsula. We saw tons of wildlife, learned about the animals, sea and history of the region. Quark does an amazing job on this and I would definitely recommend them for Antarctica.

The ship is a bit tired and dated and need of an extensive overhaul. There were numerous plumbing problems throughout the voyage. One one evening we were all told not to flush the toilets. One afternoon all the hot water in the faucets was the color of tea and on the last day of the voyage the toilets again were not flushing.

Cabin Review

I don't remember my exact cabin number. It was on the same deck as what they call the mud room. It was a porthole cabin. I would not recommend a room near the mudroom as this is where all the shore gear is stored, including everyones boots which start to smell pretty bad after the first few days.
