Sail Date: Feb 2023

At first sight this cruise is very heavy on Sea Days but, such was the effort put in by the Expedition Leader (Sara) and her team we came away feeling we had been on a very enjoyable and varied college course as well as an expedition cruise.

The hotel staff were friendly and very kind, the food was very good without being overly "posh" , the helicopter team were friendly and enthusiastic and the Captain (Per) not only inspired confidence but was also very much part of the team (he was seen regularly doing non captain jobs like filling the coffee machine).

We were lucky in our travelling companions who were widely travelled, multinational and very friendly.
