This trip exceeded my expectations in every way. I expected the destination to be fantastic, but being in Antarctica was more dramatic and beautiful than I had ever imagined. The ship also was more comfortable and nicer than I had expected - with very good food and excellent hospitality services. Finally, the expedition crew did a fantastic job trying to balance the expectations/hopes of the passengers with weather and safety - we made most of our landings, and the lectures and other activities were wonderful. I'm hooked now and already hoping to return to Antarctica! Thanks Oceanwide!
