Ship: m/v Plancius

We took this 2018 Polar Bear Special Cruise on MV Plancius in June. We had wonderful 7 days on the ship with every day activities organized by the crew and expedition team members. We were very lucky to be able to see polar bears twice during the 7 days, first sighting of three bears feasting on the ice floes and then in an evening excursion to see mother bear with her two cubs. We also saw arctic reindeer, arctic foxes, walruses, seals, fin whales, beluga whales and many kinds of sea birds and enjoyed seeing beautiful arctic flora. The crew and expedition team members were all very helpful to make our trip memorable and we thank them very much for their efforts. Our expedition guides were all very knowledgeable and passionate with their work.
