Peter Afonin

Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Plancius

This was my first cruise, so I cannot compare it with any other, but I must say that it exceeded my expectations. I saw everything I wanted to see and more. And I didn't expect such level of comfort from the expedition-type cruise. The food was also excellent. Honestly, I cannot think of anything that could be organized better. My only minor complaint is that it was pretty hot in the cabins, and the temperature could not be adjusted. Yet I slept very well. We saw polar bears, walruses, blue wales and much more. Personally, I was most impressed by the bird cliffs - an absolutely surreal sight! I can only thank Oceanwide Expeditions for this unforgettable cruise.
