Headless King Penguin on South Georgia!

We chose in 2019 because it included the Falklands, South Georgia and Tristan da Cunha, then South Africa and up to the Seychelles. A brilliant cruise for the history but particularly for the animal and bird life. it included three back-to-back cruises that covered half the world. the best parts were undoubtedly in the South Atlantic, South Georgia and the remote Tristan da Cunha. we were incredibly lucky with the weather. many of the expedition crew said they had tried to visit Tristan many times but were often beaten back by bad weather. We were very lucky sailing throughout the South Atlantic with the weather, only a couple of roughish days. another pleasure were the albatross birds that followed us all the way across the Atlantic. another remarkable stop was at Aldabra which is part of the Seychelles yet about a thousand kilometres away. this was an amazing unspoiled little corner of paradise.

Cabin Review

spacious, 27 sq metres, excellent bed and shower. we were very well looked after.
