Absolutely Loved Everything About This Trip

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

After a lot of google and assessing the information given to me I chose Quark a they appeared to be very experienced in this area and safety conscious. I was not disappointed from the minute I arrived on the ship with a warm welcome of amazing and friendly staff. Guides were efficient and knowledgable and all on our ship were extremely excited about what was about and they didnt appear to take ...

Age 20s

This seemed like the best value for the money, with a new, fast ship and luxury cabin accommodations. Everything else in the same category was at least 1-2k more expensive. So I was worried this was going to be bad, but truly loved the experience. The staff was top notch, every single member of the crew and guides so friendly and dedicated to making the ship feel like home. The food was a bit of a ...

Review for Ocean Diamond to Antarctica

A expedition to Antarctica does not have to be Rough, something I learned on my trip on the Ocean Diamond. The Captain and the expedition leader made choices of site landings and lengths of stays based on their knowledge and experience and paying attention to the weather. We experienced 2 weeks of solid good sailing. able to zodiac or make landings every day. The expedition team from Quark truly ...

Fly the Drake to Antarctica with Quark Expeditions on Ocean Adventurer

Age 40s

Flying the Drake is the obvious solution if you don't have a lot of time and get sea sick. Unfortunately we had to wait 48 hours until we were able to fly to King George Island due to the weather conditions. As a consequence we only had 6 nights on the ship, but we managed to sail to the Antarctic Circle. The ship, the Ocean Adventurer used to be called the Sea Adventurer. It does not have large ...

Antarctica is the trip of a lifetime and one that should be on everyones bucket list. Quark is a first rate operator with amazing guides and great crew. This is what makes the trip so incredible. Our cruise included the Falklands/Malvinas, South Georgia and some other smaller islands along the route. Each stop was more impressive than the last, leading up to the incredible Antarctic ...

Better than we ever expected

Age 60s

My husband and I dreamed of going to Antarctica. After much research, we chose to go on Quark Expeditions Ocean Endeavor trip to the Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica. We made our reservations a year in advance so we had a lot of time to plan and dream of our trip. We expected a lot; these trips are expensive. However, I’m happy to say that Quark’s Ocean Endeavor exceeded all of our ...

Rude and lying staff member, skipping multiple ports of call, mold in room

Review for Ocean Endeavour (Quark Expeditions) to Antarctica

Age 30s

1. The staff didn't seem to prioritise our seeing and experiencing as much as possible. We felt that we were treated like sheep rather than sentient clients who had spent a lot of money for a unique and remote experience. While we understand that the places we travel to are highly regulated to preserve their existence, it seemed that the staff were performing a rote exercise in getting us ...

Great expedition - poor service - Noble Caledonian

Review for Ocean Diamond to Arctic

Age 70s

This ship was contracted by Noble Caledonia to circumnavigate Iceland. Nobel Caledonia would have to be the worst organised cruise ship company I have dealt with. Their systems were clunky, they could cope with two people in the same cabin with different addresses so kept sending material to only one party. They were advised that both of us would be arriving in the UK before the cruise and ...

I have travelled with Noble Caledonia before and on this ship The Hebrides are always interesting the islands are all different some are spectacular and the weather is different too Some islands are easier to get on than others The Noble Caledonia Expedition Team were very good at rearranging things to suit the weather and the landings on the islands we got to nearly all the places on the ...

Warning: Know before you go!!!

If you plan to visit Antarctica, be aware that no matter which ship you take, YOU MAY GET STUCK IN ICE and NO ONE will be coming to rescue you unless there is a dire emergency…in which case you might be airlifted by helicopter. We encountered ice that neither our ship (with reinforced hull) nor an icebreaker could have handled, and spent ~9 days in the area waiting for wind to move the ice so that ...
