Sail Date: Jan 2023

Superb Antarctic navigation aboard La Commandant Charcot leaving from Ushuaia through Drakes Passage, tracking west along Antarctica from Marguerite Bay to Cape Adare and then up to Lyttelton, NZ

Captain Devorsine & Expedition Leader Kuyper went out of their way to provide an exceptional Antarctic experience including navigation along the Ross Ice Shelf, navigation through ice floes, expeditions on fast ice & continental Antarctica to experience the landscape & wildlife and, to the extent conditions allowed, visits to historic sites

Not all passenger bucket list items could be achieved due to weather conditions. Negative passenger comments in this regard should be discounted. Too often complaining passengers ignored the ample warnings before & during the cruise that what can be done & experienced is dependent on weather & sea conditions. Adverse conditions may mean desired experiences cannot be done without comprising passenger & crew safety. These passengers may not care for their own safety but I very much appreciated this Captain & Leaders’ respect for a harsh & unforgiving environment & their insistence on the primacy of passenger/crew safety
