The Linblad/NatGeo Expedition format is amazing. There were 117 passengers on this cruise. We all felt like everyone on the ship was part of the Expedition and enjoyed new discoveries. The itinerary is fluid as the Expedition Leader and Ship Captain seek to deliver a unique and memorable experience. The open bridge (yes I said the bridge) is unique in my cruising experience and provided as many sighting memories as being out in Zodiacs in Antarctic waters. The open bow is also a great place for viewing. The staff is totally accessible and provide context for what we experienced. Context is important, think of Antarctica as a region, the main ice covered landmass hosts scientific bases supported by long logistics tails.. This is not a place for taking a short hike to see the sights. The Explorer ship covered the unique life found in Antarctic waters and its many islands. Lindblad/NatGeo delivered a great trip and made me a life-long advocate for the Antarctic region.
