Lifetime ambition to visit Antarctica . The shore excursions were exceptionally well organised. Pre Planning and getting ashore to many Islands were run with military precision. Walking on ice , ice cruising round ice bergs and other activities were remarkably good. The suite decor was well presented and the Wellington boots were easy to dry as hot air pipes located in cloak cupboards dried boots easily. Every member of the crew most helpful. We found it very difficult to find fault. Maybe the only criticism was the food in executive dining room was a little repetitive but the quality of food was good. Pre trip lectures were informative so We knew exactly what to expect. No stone was left unturned when it came to safety briefings. If you did not attend safety briefings then you did not go ashore until attendance was signed off. I cannot praise the trip highly enough.
