I did the OTL27-19 Antarctic Peninsula - Basecamp trip from 29/12/18 to 9/1/19. It was by far the most enjoyable experience ever! The trip was always going to be fantastic - because let's face it - it is the Antarctic. Just being there is awesome in itself. However, I'm not writing this review about the place but the people who made it special. The expedition team & ship crew were awesome. The ones that stood out were Beau, Sandra, Gracie, Mal, Marijke, Sigi & Melanie. We were blessed with excellent weather & as such there was no down-time for the expedition crew. It is easy to deduce that the exceptionally fine days meant that Beau & Sandra had to work extra hard to make sure we muggles were suitably entertained, happy & had nothing to complain about the whole trip. I am truly appreciative of all their efforts and for going above and beyond to ensure we had the best experience ever. You can credit Beau & Sandra as the reason that I have already booked my next trip with Oceanwide - and if i don't get to see them on that trip, then whoever is part of the expedition crew will have some big shoes to fill as I will be comparing their levels of enthusiasm, caring and dedication :-)
