Everything about this Spitsbergen , N.E. Greenland to Iceland adventure was perfect . The expedition staff were so impressive - knowledgable , friendly , immensely capable -just wonderful people working as a tight team, sharing a huge range of tasks ,always patient, enthusiastic , supportive and good company. The ship Plancius was no frills comfortable, the crew were most impressive. Meals were excellent. The itinerary was masterfully managed by Exped. Leader Andrew and the Captain. Always plenty to see and do and talks from expedition staff on many subjects were great. Landings and zodiac cruises were fun and challenging. Couldn't recommend this trip more highly.
