This trip exeeded my expectations. What I wanted was a smaller ship with an accent to seeing wildlife. Here I got all I wanted. The crew and the guides were all dedicated to getting us to see as much wildlife as possible. Even though half of the guests on the ship were part of the same group (and language), staff did everything possible to ensure that we all could enjoy this trip (getting into zodiacs took incredible little time!) Once we got up at 6am because they saw a polar bear; and another day we did 3 zodiac trips in a single day! Professional, efficient and competent (I liked their lectures on wildlife). I also liked the ship; very clean, the cabin was large and confortable, food was plenty (even too much!) and of good quality. This trip has been faultless, from the booking process to disembarcation. I highly recommend this trip and Oceanwide Expeditions. Many on board were returning guests, I will also book another trip with them!
