Region: Antarctica

Destinations: Antarctic Peninsula

Ship: m/v Plancius

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our visit to the Antarctic Peninsula and the Southern Shetland Islands. We found the staff very professional and approachable. The lectures were given by subject experts. We saw many Gentoo penguins courting, mating and making nests. A wonderful time of year to see the lives of these penguins. Whenever whales, dolphins, or seals were seen, the crew would let the guests know. We did a bit of snowshoeing since the snow was deep. However, we thinking going later in the year, one could encounter sloppy conditions. We snowshoed to where we would get wonderful views of the area. Just beautiful. The meals were varied and good. Birthdays were celebrated with fun. In the lounge area, there was a wonderful hot beverage machine. Finally, the crew was always safety conscious. A big example was by leaving the peninsula a little early to avoid a big storm coming to the Drake Passage. We still rocked and rolled but not as bad as it could be. We were very thankful for their concern.
