This was a trip of a life time. I have thought and planned the trip to Antarctica for years. Researching many options. National geographic/Lindblad was always my top choice. The ship, crew and staff were excellent. National Geographic staff gave presentations on history, wild life and photography. We had a variety of food prepared by an excellent chief. The dinning room had open seating so we sat with different people each meal. This was an expedition and the staff planned each day with many challenges. One of the stops was Brown Bluff a continental landing, When we arrived a group went on shore to set up. There were large pieces of ice that blocked access to the landing area and were told we would not be able to go on shore, This was rather disappointing. As we suited up to go out another announcement was made that some of the ice was moved and landing was possiable.

An amazing expedition
