This cruise was wonderful from top-down. The Captain and Expedition Leader worked tirelessly to alter the itinerary ensuring we would encounter the best possible weather for wildlife viewing. This is a huge benefit. Having to try to watch penguins while freezing in a blizzard with poor visibility would not be fun. The entire expedition team was very helpful. We also had frequent updates on weather conditions. Only wish they had a marine biologist onboard.
The cabin was lovely and cabin service was excellent. It’s an expedition ship so food won’t be quite as over-the-top as a traditional cruise, but it was certainly excellent and with a good variety.
The lectures were frequent. I enjoyed there having a multitude of expedition team members doing talks. Some were more science based, some were more historical, and some were simply entertaining while being informative. None of the talks were boring.
