Region: Antarctica

Destinations: Antarctic Peninsula

Ship: m/v Plancius

I have traveled the world (this was my final continent), and this was the most amazing trip ever. It far exceeded any of my expectations. We were active all the time. Two 2 1/2 hour outings a day minimum with kayaking, landings at penguin colonies (three species), research stations old and new, hikes, glaciers, zodiac cruising to see seals on ice bergs or shipwrecks. Giant whale bones. The wildlife was especially amazing. Up close and personal with whales of three species, seals of 5 species, and flying birds of many. The guides were wonderful: excited, knowledgeable and so overqualified. We also had lectures, a photography expert, fabulous food and a cookout on deck. I loved the fact that it was a small ship with only 130 passengers, and all about the nature. Nothing extraneous like gambling or a disco or things giant cruises waste my money on. Just amazing experiences that you could only have in Antarctica. And all the staff was so nice and positive. They seemed as excited to do things as we were. Several times we left for trips 15 minutes early so as to have even more time. I never felt rushed, but had hours to look at wildlife or ramble. It was the best.
