Loved this cruise because the people who worked on this ship were so dedicated, knowable and friendly. The staterooms were roomy and well appointed. The addition of the fireplace in the room was a wonderful addition for a cold climate environment. The food was delicious, large variety and served by well trained waiters. I can't say enough about the team leaders who were dedicated to our ...

SH Vega is a purpose-built ship for polar cruising, hurriedly launched from it's Finnish shipyard in July, 2022 to avoid possible sanctions due to it's then-Russian ownership and fallout from the Russia-Ukraine conflict. It is thoughtfully designed and has spacious public areas, a large observation lounge with bar on the 7th Deck, cabins on Decks 5 and 6 and a nice dining room on Deck 4. Deck 8 is ...

Excellent itinerary which went further than many ships, touring both the west and east coasts of the Svalbard archipelago . The ship, SH Vega, was stylish and intimate and provided excellent food, service and comfort. Meals were taken in the dining room or on the outside deck when the weather was suitable. On some occasions there was a delicious barbecue on the deck where we could enjoy both the ...

My sister-in-law is a lecturer on board of your ships. Originally, we were due to go to Wenger Island but for obvious reasons it was cancelled. persuaded by her I decided to come on the alternative trip. The ship was amazing, it had all the facilities you could dream of. The lay out was just perfect. Very cosy, lots of space to isolate yourself if you wished too. The right number of ...

The SH Vega was a lovely, new ship! My cabin couldn't have been more luxurious or more spacious with a King-size bed, an electric fireplace and a very functional bathroom. The food was fabulous and the presentation and variety were top-notch. The crew was friendly, well-trained and did everything they could do to make my trip pleasurable in every way. The zodiac expeditions were well-handled in ...

I had always had an interest in seeing Antarctica and through a group I chose this cruise. It was very well organized and everyone involved was both professional and FUN! The ship itself was beautiful, the cabins very nice and of the food and drink wonderful. But it was the Antarctic in all its splendor that made this cruise so memorable. I’ve told family and friends that they absolutely must put ...

Sarah was exceptional in knowledge, friendliness, approachability. Managed the whole expedition team seamlessly and had great stories. Seb was equally as good, incredible knowledge base; shared his personal expedition in re-enacting Shackleton's voyage to save self and crew. Sasha shared his experience of spending a year or more on the Ukranian station, which we did a drive by; couldn't stop ...

We had a great time on this cruise. The service, the rooms, the food was all five star. Enjoyed the small boat atmosphere. Because of this size it was easy great to get to know everyone. The crew was always there to help and educate us on our trip to Antarctica. I would travel with them again. The best part of the trip was the expeditions onto shore. They always picked great spots to land ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

True to its slogan, “See what others don’t”, my Antarctica voyage opened my eyes to the incredible scenery and wildlife in Antarctica. My February voyage started with three days sailing toward the Antarctic Circle and further south, an unexpected and very welcome surprise. We reached Stonington Island where we had our first encounter with penguins. On this occasion, we saw Adelie penguins marvel ...
