  • Falklands, South Georgia, Antarctic Peninsula
HELENE & ANNE BOLLON & BOUARD

Region: Antarctica

Destinations: Antarctic Circle

Ship: m/v Plancius

This 19 days cruise could have been much more interesting if one of the 7 guides had been a biologist. Only 3 of them were scientists ( physics, geology, glaciology), but none was competent at ornithology. This is totally abnormal in such an expensive cruise, in a region where bird life is so important. For charity, we don't mention the presence aboard of a supposed "mammologist guide" whose level was so poor that we prefer not to comment it more...
