Just an awesome experience. The whole ship management was excellent. Cabin was cleaned at least 3 times a day. Food was very good. Service was unremarkable. Noticed and experienced they serve food what ever you want even if it is not in the menu. Indian, Filipino, Chinese you name it they will cook and serve fresh for you. The team members of Quark Expedition were very knowledgeable. Kristene, ...

My wife and I just did the Fly the Drake Antarctica expedition. Everything about the experience was perfect, from the leader Abby to the server Royvahn and all the expedition team and crew. It is an incredible task to coordinate logistics in such a remote part of the world. We were left wanting for nothing. It was a once in a lifetime experience perfectly executed at all levels. These are top ...

We took the 'Fly the Drake' expedition, flying from Punta Arenas to King George Island. The flight was on Antarctica Airways, a 4-engine jet that landed on a gravel runway. The flight both ways was smooth. On board food were prepared sandwiches and other snacks. Very filling but - you should refrain from filling up since lunch will be available once you board the Ocean Adventurer. The initial ...

I chose Silversea because they had a cruise that would have me in Antarctica for my birthday. Due to COVID, my 2021 cruise was canceled. I understand- COVID. Since my cruise and plane tickets were already paid for, I thought it easier to just rebook for the following year. I had no problem switching the dates of my flight to Argentina and Silversea still had a sailing that would have me in ...

This report includes information on our February 15—March 12, 2022, “Ross Sea” expedition cruise on the Le Commandant Charcot with Ponant. Although we had taken a “drive by” cruise of the Antarctic Peninsula in 2007 on the Golden Princess and explored “Beyond the Polar Circle” in 2020 on the Le Soléal with Ponant, this expedition offered the opportunity to experience much more of the Antarctic ...

This was meant to be a once in a lifetime experience but I am going to have to have a "do-over" My cruise was fraught with disappointments. Some were unavoidable such as ice blocking short cuts through passages (totally acceptable and probably expected to a certain degree on an expedition cruise). We even had to turn around early to go through the Drake passage 2 days early out of concern for a ...

SilverSea Antarctica - Not a luxury; not an expedition! Simply mediocore.

We traveled with Silversea on Silver Cloud to Antarctica in February, 2022. The trip was touted as a luxury expedition but turned out to be a dismal, Sail by cruise. More than 30% of the ship crew was infected with COVID pre departure. Still, the ship sailed without us learning about the infection! Instead of cancelling the trip, Silversea disregarded all Covid safety protocols and continued with ...

My daughter got this cruise for my 80th birthday August 2022. It was to be our trip of a lifetime, instead it was a disaster. When we finally boarded after our Covid tests and enduring long lines in Chili, we boarded the ship with known Covid staff and crew infected. We were not told. My daughter has Crohns and I am almost 80, although fully vaccinated with Covid booster we would have chosen ...

Over 30% of the crew has COVID resulting in: 1. No kayak program - on of the main activities I wanted to participate in on this trip. 2. Only offered 5 out of 12 expeditions 3. Buffet service all but 3-4 days of the trip and 2 of 4 restaurants closed. One for the entirety of the trip and one for all but 4 days. 4. Remaining staff all were extremely nice and helpful but very overworked ...
