Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin:

We selected the Abercrombie and Kent-Ponant cruise to Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falklands for its relatively small size - 170 passengers - and the reputation of the expeditionary staff.

The expeditions were excellent and the lectures were quite good with the exception of some inappropriate, disparaging remarks about our president and an Al Gore-glorifying, climate change zealot of a geologist who brooked no dissent and skepticism despite the legions of scientists who believe otherwise.

The food was plentiful but uninteresting and repetitive with thin soups, little chicken, lots of pork and unappealing cream-filled desserts.

Cabin Review

The cabin was commodious and well-designed for comfort and convenience with an adequate bedroom and a good-sized living room. The bathroom layout was excellent and the room well-appointed.
