I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Arctic diving & Polar Bear Watching Expedition
From
€3,020
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All of it! The extremes of weather, the diversity of animals, the quality of the accommodation and facilities, and something you can't plan for - new found friends! Tips? Don't set your heart on seeing anything specific. Be prepared for the changes in weather. It's not as challenging as I expected - to take account of the huge spectrum of ages and abilities. But most of all HAVE FUN! Local benefits? Not so much the local people, though we did buy a lot... (more)Lisa Thomas
Arctic sailing voyages, Spitsbergen
From
€2,030
excluding flights
It was brilliant, one of the best things I have done during my many years of overseas travel, and the weather was really kind to us. (more)Susan Lett
We had so many memorable moments. A Blue Whale and her calf cut across our bow when we were sailing, it was so exciting. Hoisting the sails was an exciting moment and everyone was keen to join in. (more)Gayna Wallis
Best bit: Watching blue whales feeding while manning the helm of the yacht. (more)Ian McGuire
Antarctica, Falklands & South Georgia small ship cruises
From
£4,990
excluding flights
This trip will forever stay in my heart. Incredible. I would go again tomorrow if I got the chance. (more)Helen Connolly
Fantastic - it's more than a holiday and is so different to anything else I have ever done. South Georgia is an amazing place. The beaches were packed with tens of thousands of penguins and they weren't afraid to come right up to us. The scenery in Antarctica is beautiful. (more)rebecca allcock
Every part of the holiday was memorable including animals, birds, scenery, the ship (Polar Pioneer), fellow travellers and expedition team. (more)Christine Brignoni
Arctic icebreaker cruise, Spitsbergen
From
£2,299
excluding flights
An amazing trip! The scenery -glaciers, icebergs and sea ice - were stunning, the northern lights fantastic, and the wildlife wonderful. It is impossible to highlight one part, as it was two memorable weeks! (more)Kathryn Huddle
Seeing polar bears, walruses and whales. Especially seeing a rare Bowhead whale whilst moving through the pack ice. (more)Peter Smart
Very good... the most memorable parts is arriving at the pack ice on a beautiful sunny evening and then seeing our first polar bear. (more)david rumsey
Antarctic Peninsula & Weddell Sea cruise
From
£5,350
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The close sighting of a pod of Orca attacking a Humpbacked Whale and penguins. Bird watching from the ship. Visiting the mainland at Neko Harbour. The ideal size of the ship and friendliness of the other passengers and crew. Tips? Don't bother taking your own warm boots. Those provided were perfectly adequate with our own waterproof walking shoes for deck walking. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? A wonderful experience (more)Roger Labbatt
Antarctica, Falklands and South Georgia cruises
From
£8,560
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The highlight of the trip for me was always going to be South Georgia, which has fascinated me for years and entirely lived up to my very high expectations. What a stunningly beautiful place! We were extremely fortunate as we approached the island because there was no cloud cover and we could see the full magnificence of the snowy peaks in all their glory - a rare occurrence apparently. During three whole days around this incredible island, we made a numerous landings and... (more)Roger Bilder

Spitsbergen wildlife cruises
From
£2,399
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing a mother polar bear and her two cubs walking on the ice floes walking along them then diving in and swimming to the next one. The cubs following on behind her. Fabulous! Tips? Be warm but also have some smart casual clothes to wear in the evening. When inside of the boat you can be relatively warm - have those layers for going out on deck where it can be cooler but you can watch the midnight sun or enjoy the on deck BBQ. If you want good photographs make sure... (more)Susie Barrett
Fiji cruise, escape to paradise
From
£1,419
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Blue Lagoon Cruise, no question. We did the 3 day cruise 15 years ago, always said we would do it again, this time the 7 day cruise. We worried a bit, wondering if it would be as good, but it was fabulous! We would highly recommend it, if you like small ships. We also had 6 days on the 'mainland' 2 days on Bounty Island, it was okay if you were 20 (our guide said she thought we were 30)nothing on the island but the resort, and extremely loud music! We had a 2 day... (more)Ms Adrian Redford
Arctic cruise adventure holiday
From
£3,499
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The holiday was great throughout but the highlight has to be seeing our first polar bear with 2 cubs! The scenery was also spectacular Tips? Take a range of clothes for all temperatures. I did not expect it to be high 20s 200 miles north of the Arctic circle! but I wasn;t complaining! Local benefits? All efforts were made to reduce environmental impact. Overall rating? Excellent trip, good mix of activities and high standard of food and accommodation (more)judith olsen
Antarctica vacation, classic cruise
From
£3,699
excluding flights
The whole trip from the time we boarded the ship to disembarkation. The most memorable thing was not getting sea sick the ship is that stable...The best ever. (more)David Lohan
This was the most incredible holiday - the staff on our ship were so efficient and hospitable, the landings were well managed and offered a diverse range of activities (hiking, sliding down the slopes on our stomachs, seals/penguins/birds - and the occasional whale), fascinating lectures, and a wonderful small ship environment. (more)Barbara Wilson
Great Barrier Reef & Lizard Island cruise, Australia
From
£1,089
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. Tips? Make the most of it. The food is excellent, the service is amazing and the snorkeling and diving are the best experience ever. Local benefits? I hope so. I would't have minded paying more if needed. Overall rating? One of the best experience of my life. (more)Isabelle Kerdranvat

From
US $8,725
excluding flights
GREAT!!!!!!! (more)Krisztina Inczedy
The very first Antarctic landing was a photographer's feast that was totally mindblowing at such an early stage of the trip. (more)Louise Yerbury
The most memorable part of visiting Antarctica has to be (as part of the diving contingent) diving with Leopard Seals on two occasions. (more)Mike McCormack

An absolutely stunning holiday thanks, just magic! The most exciting part was very close encounters with whales :0) ... Rate holiday 9/10, excellent! (more)Sally Hawkins
No words that I can write nor pictures that I can show will ever capture the magic, the feeling and the mood of Antarctica. You simply have to go there for that. It was beyond compare utterly beautiful in every way. (more)David Oates
Antarctic diving expedition
From
£4,420
excluding flights
Interacting with the wildlife in Antarctica was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Robert Pecoraro
All of it was memorable, but if I had to pick it would be my first sight of Antarctica which was at sunrise, wow! And my 30 minute dive with a leopard seal. But it was all amazing. (more)Stacy Valentine
Most memorable was diving around the ice bergs and snorkelling with the leopard seal. Real WOW factor. (more)Judith Bewell
Alaska wildlife cruise
From
CA $5,265
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The whole trip was outstanding from start to finish. The boat was great - large enough to give everyone space but small enough to be personal. The crew were exception and had the holiday, Brian the very experience skipper who had time to talk to everyone and was extremely knowledgeable, Steve nothing was too much trouble, Annie the cook who provided first class food made fresh everyday and Danny the naturalist who was knowledgeable and great fun. And finally the wildlife... (more)Sarah Taylor
Kamchatka wildlife and bird watching cruise, Russia
From
US $8,000
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the ribbon seals, the northern right whale and the spoonbill sandpiper. Tips? Be prepared for lots of walking on the tundra. Also understand that the ship does not have stabilizers so even a mild swell rocks the ship. Bring a good layering system as temperatures and ice conditions can vary greatly. Local benefits? Supported conservation and the spoonbill sandpiper project. I suppose that we provided some income for the people in the towns in which... (more)Marian Herz
