We dreamed of this trip for 26 years before finally pulling the plug and spending the money. For us it would be a once in a lifetime experience. And it turned out to be everything we'd dreamed of, and more. The ship was billed as "well accommodated, but not luxurious". Well, sorry, but heated towel racks are my idea of luxury. Everything from the accommodations to the expertise and professionalism of the crew to the emphasis on minimizing our impact on the environment just fit beautifully with what we'd dreamed of all those years. The food was outstanding … well, except for the dining room coffee, which was surprisingly awful. But the coffee machine in the passenger lounge served well enough, and we took to just going upstairs for our after-meal cup. So that worked out well anyway. We LOVED the crew … professional, accommodating, and informative. The seminars and presentations were well done, and added a great deal to the overall experience. We're so glad we chose Oceanwide for our dream trip. So now, of course, we have to figure out how to choose them again for a trip to the other pole … :)
