I have researching Antarctica expedition cruises for a while.
Let me start off by saying I got a bargain price for this cruise...it must have gone on sale for a week when I nabbed it. I might have been a little disappointed had I paid close to full price.
Embarkation was quite disorganized. Busloads of people were brought to the ship at once and IF you knew your cabin number, you could go to that deck to sign in.....but most in this mob scene did not have cabin assignments yet.
