  • Fantastic week in the Arctic with the great crew and Captain
Colin Vale

Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Plancius

Fantastic week in the Arctic with the great crew and Captain of the Plancius. Another vessel, the MV Expedition, was in Svalbard the same time as us and they saw zero bears! We saw 25 and I think that can be put down to the hard work of the expedition leader and his team and the Captain of the Plancius. The Captain is always considers safety but at the same time does everything he can to ensure the customers have a great trip. This was our second time on the Plancius (Antarctic 2014) with the same captain and some of the same crew. Excellent service and attention to detail.
