We had the trip of a lifetime aboard the Ortelius. Everything was perfect, the crew and the expedition guides were always friendly and helpful with a huge knowledge about Antarctica. The lectures were very interesting and informative. All the landings were amazing and the places we visited were beautiful with amazing wildlife. The ship is very comfortable, our room (twin porthole) was very spacious and always clean, the food was always delicious and varied, served by very friendly staff. Everything was very well organized, the landings and the zodiac trips. We loved that it was more like an expedition than a cruise, and that it was very informal and there was a great vibe on board. At the end we were like a big family. Thank you to all the staff on board, to Sebas and the guides, to Michael and the hotel crew and to all that made our trip unforgettable. Thank you as well for the trip log it is amazing!!! Hope to see you in the Arctic!
