My wife and I were on the Plancius Spitsbergen trip leaving August 29th. This was our first expedition cruise so we were a bit apprehensive. However the Plancius proved to be a very comfortable ship, the cabin was more spacious than we expected, although we didn't spend much time in it! The crew were excellent, always cheerful and polite. The food was also varied and appetising and served with a smile. The expedition leader Lynn and the other guides were very knowledgeable and organised a full programme of shore excursions and lectures. The Captain and Lynn together decided to go as far north as it took to find the pack-ice and we were rewarded with fabulous polar bear encounters. Pushing through the ice made us feel like real explorers! As well as the polar bears we saw whales, walruses, dolphins, seals, fox, reindeer. and numerous bird species. Overall this was an amazing experience.
