Right from the start when we embarked Plancius on December 28, 2015, the friendly atmosphere on board the ship and its helpful professional crew were promising signs for a great expedition to Antarctica. And it came true in every aspect. The captain and his crew sailed us to exceptional and remote places, the hotel staff made us feel at home on board and the expedition staff did their utmost to let us experience Antarctica’s nature and wildlife. When weather was too severe for activities on land they worked out alternatives like Zodiac drives or extra early morning landings after captain and crew sailed the ship to more sheltered places. With all the landings we made on different places of the Peninsula and the offered activities like kayaking, mountaineering, camping, etc., we have experienced the incredible nature of Antarctica and its wildlife. In the background always there were the staff, helpful for our convenience and safety. It really was a great experience.
