Ship: m/v Hondius

We enjoyed very much all the trip. The ship and the staff were great. The cabins were beyond our expectations. The quality of the lectures was amazing. The third officer Mr. Igor Nazarov was always ready to explain all the rather complicated information on the screens and to answer all our questions at the bridge. Maybe, in Ny Alesund the division in groups according to the interests would make the stay on land even more efficient. The walk on an ice pack will be unforgettable. The face to face encounter with a nice and well fed bear was definitely the highlight of the trip. Thank you all for the wonderful time.
