We chose the cruise because we love adventure and seeing God’s creations. This was truly an amazing trip! Setting foot on Antarctica was so cool! I would recommend this trip to everyone. We loved the daily talked from the biologist and scientist on board. Also, the NGO photographers. The daily excursion to hike, watch whales, visit penguins, Count leopard seals were so much fun. I also loved that there was an emphasis on making a low impact on the environment.

I actually came away with a desire to be more responsible regarding my impact on the environment. Also the trip contained no political agenda. It’s great to go with a group that didn’t talk about the current political mess in our country.

Another great aspect was the scuba divers. Interesting to see what it looks like under the surface. Also, to hear how difficult it is to dive in very cold waters.

Cabin Review

The cabin was perfect. Great views and plenty of light!
