Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Plancius

The Svalbard Arctic expedition cruise was an excellent experience of the Arctic environment and the current climatic pressures affecting the flora and fauna of the area. The facilities on the ship were well set-up and cleaned regularly. The meals were very good with a good choice of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the catering staff were always helpful and friendly. The expedition staff were all knowledgeable in their varied fields and the presentations were informative. The organisation of the zodiac cruises and landing were professionally handled. We saw 6 polar bears in close proximity (incl. 2 cubs), walruses, seals, arctic foxes, and lots of birds. I would recommend this cruise to anyone wanting a real Arctic experience
