  • Cruising in the Arctic with the M/V Hondius
Teresa Rivas

Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Hondius

We loved our week aboard the Hondius: The ship, which had been sailing for less than a month when we boarded, was clean, well appointed, and very stable/smooth sailing. The food was varied and delicious, there were always hot drinks and snacks available, and the cabins were comfortable. Our staff seemed knowledgeable and, along with the ship crew, managed to find us polar bears every day, along with other great wildlife sightings, including walruses, belugas, puffins, and reindeer. The disembarkation to the zodiacs was a little chaotic, in terms that groups weren't often called so everyone was stuffed in at once trying to get on, and there wasn't great communication/information at the start and end of the trip (which bus to take where etc.) but those seem like small hiccups that I'm sure will get smoothed out with time. I would definitely cruise with Oceanwide and this vessel again.
