South Georgia Island and Patagonia

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on World Explorer (Quark Expeditions)

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Fantastic experience. Amazing places, with hundreds of thousands of penguins and seals in South Georgia Island (a must) and Antarctica, with hundreds of whales along the away, among others. Top notch crew with non-stop options for science and history explorations. Wonderful people who love what they do. Very good food with tons of choices. Very nice boat with great first class cabins. Quark ...

Most amazing experience in absolute comfort

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on SH Vega

2-5 Cruises • Age 64s

Antarctica has been on our radar for a while and we finally booked with Swan Hellenic for what turned out to be the trip of a lifetime. Luxury is the first word that comes to mind, but comfort and the friendly staff played a huge part in making this the most wonderful experience. We loved our balcony cabin mid ship on deck 5 and appreciated being able to have fresh air and the opportunity to view ...

Wonderful Voyage!

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on SH Vega

10+ Cruises • Age 45s

Best way to see Antartica. I highly recommend Swan Hellenic. Amazing crew and expedition leaders. They handled every request with joy and were always fun to be around. I love that the expedition leaders would join us in the dining room for dinner too. Fun way to pass the evening, hearing their stories and finding out about them. The chocolates on the pillow every evening were great, and our room ...

Wonderful in every way.

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on World Traveller

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose this cruise because of relatively small size, with 200 passengers or less. I had wanted to go to Antarctica since my teen years. Retired in 2022 and booked this cruise. Everything was perfect. It happened to be her maiden voyage and we thoroughly enjoyed the naming ceremony. Truly was an experience to always remember. The trip itself involved multiple zodiac trips to Antarctica ...

AVOID AT ALL COSTS - false advertising (ocean view room = claustrophobic metal shield box), terrible customer service, broken promises - WORST CRUISE COMPANY!

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on World Navigator

6-10 Cruises • Age 30s

BE WARNED! - FALSE ADVERTISING, metal shield bolted over supposed “oceanview” window, nightmare manager, bedroom smelled of sewage, damaged property not compensated for, horrendous customer service, inappropriate behaviour from staff members towards female passengers, zero compensation when things go wrong! Alcatraz prison windows had nothing on this! It is completely bolted down with ...

Cannot recommend this trip or ship highly enough.

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Roald Amundsen

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

This was a trip to celebrate my wife's retirement. We had seen the "Mighty Cruise Ships" documentary on the Roald Amundsen and booked within days of watching. We were sailing to Antarctica and returning via the Falkland Islands. When we were due to pay the balance of the holiday, I read a lot of negative reviews of this trip and contacted my travel agent (Trailfinders) to see what feedback they ...

"Fly the Drake" - a well-designed and nicely executed expedition to Antarctica

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on World Explorer (Quark Expeditions)

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

I chose this expedition because it focused on locations immediately in and around Antarctica. Quark's "Fly the Drake" expedition departs from Punta Arenas, Chile - not by ship, but by a chartered 2.5-hour flight that arrives on a gravel airstrip on King George Island. This approach bypasses the Drake Passage and its potentially turbulent waters. Quark's expedition includes one night before ...

Trip of a lifetime!!

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Ocean Diamond

Linda F 2023
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Wow what trip! I had always wanted to go to Antarctica, I finally made it and I certainly wasn't disappointed. The Quark Expedition team were absolutely brilliant and I had to keep pinching myself, especially the first day in the Antarctic Circle when I went on deck and saw us sailing past iceburgs - I think that moment will stay with me forever. The ship was spacious, warm and very ...
