Region: Antarctica

Destinations: Antarctic Peninsula

Ship: m/v Ortelius

I had a very good time on my expedition. The staff and guides were concerned with the safety of the guests and wildlife. Speaking of the guides, they answered all questions, were well educated and had a wide range of experience. The ship was clean, well lit and comfortable. The food was varied and plentiful. I got the opportunity to participate in camping, sea kayaking and mountaineering. There were also many on shore and zodiac tours of the different landings. I saw lots of wildlife and several research centers. There was an opportunity to meet the scientists working at the Vernadsky Station, mail a postcard and buy a souvenir or two. The Drake Passage was a little rough, but worth the trip.
