Sail Date: Feb 2022
Cabin:
This was our fist landing Petermann Island (I think) saw Gentoo penguins for the first time, so friendly.

I don't know where to start, I will just say this is the most amazing experience I have had in my life. The staff were knowledgeable, helpful and enthusiastic. The excursions were superb...except for the camping, I don't like camping normally but thought this would be different but the tents were small, noisy and our sleeping bag zip was stuck and camp loo was not awesome. If I didn't have to part with the best part of £400 (extra cost for excursion) then my expectations would have been lower. The kayaking was the highlight for me, it was like a dream and a Fin whale appeared while we were out there and blew, i still have goose bumps. The seals, penguins, birds and sunsets are things I will take away with me forever. The ship has everything you need but the top deck explorer lounge is a great place to spend time, have a hot chocolate or a latte while sailing.

Cabin Review

cosy and functional and has a surprising amount of storage. Needs charging points on the bedside table and better connections for the TV to laptop. Will be good to tell us about the connections beforehand as we have (almost) all brought laptops.
