This trip far exceeded our expectations. The new ship was excellent, the crew were very friendly and helpful and the Expedition team were knowledgeable and approachable. We had a comfortable and spacious cabin on deck 5 with a large window.
There was a good choice of food in the restaurant and either buffet dinners or fixed seating depending on the daily schedule. The trip is all about what you are going to see and everything is arranged around that.
We were lucky to be able to land at Cape Horn, cross the Antarctic Circle and go past 70 degrees South to the ice fields. Interesting landings at Stonnington Island, Red Rock Ridge, Horseshoe Island, Ukrainian Research Base, Orne Island, Deception Island, some small boat cruising and 3 stops in The Falklands, not forgetting the Neptune Ice Challenge
There is no usual cruise ship entertainment which was not a problem, the various lectures were informative and interesting and could be watched on your cabin tv if you didn’t wantto sit in the lecture room,.
Plenty of space, large bed and sofa. Room under the bed for the cases. Good to have a Kettle and tea bags were topped up regularly.
City Tour was included as part of transfer to ship, it was good to be able to have a look around.View All 24 City Tour Reviews
