Highlights: Shore-Based Walking, Arctic Fox, Walrus

This was a great experience and we were very fortunate in seeing wonderful wildlife. The ship was comfortable and food was plentiful. There was a choice of food but I found the vegetarian dishes unimaginative.There was a variety of talks about different aspects of the environment and wildlife. I understood that the voyage was in English and German and I thought both languages would be treated equally but there was a definite bias to German with long explanations and lots of jokes in German followed by a quick one minute talk in a English. When English was spoken it was sometimes so bad it was difficult to understand.
